First off this update, I have to apologize that I missed the update 3 weeks ago. I was preparing for surgery that Tuesday and my mind just was not on stitching.
Everything turned out beautifully and I am feeling fine and almost completely healed and back to work. During my recovery I got some stitching and reading done which was relaxing and kept the pain at bay.
I did, however change my SAL project for this group. I just was not feeling my own charted project that I was working on so I have put that aside and have chosen to work on the gigantic Onions and Gourds Cross Stitch Project instead.
Here is a photo of what the project will look like when it is finished:
and here is my progress so far after three weeks:
Doesn’t look like much yet but maybe you will see it take shape in the next three weeks.
Please check out the other stitchers in the Stitch-a-Long and see what they are up to. There is some fantastic work going on with these folks that I am excited to catch up on.

See you in three weeks!

Glad to hear you are doing better.
I really like this project. I looked at doing it myself, but decided not to. Looking forward to seeing your progress.
That is a large project, but it will be fun to watch grow! Looks like the same aida I’m working on. Very pretty and great initial progress made 🙂
Glad your surgery was a success. Love the new project. It will be pretty when done.
I’m pleased the surgery went well. Enjoy the huge project. You’ve got quite a bit done considering what you’ve been up to lately.
So glad to hear your recovery is moving along smoothly, and that you felt up to stitching while you were home. This a very unique still life, it will come to life under your needle!
I’m glad to hear you are on the mend – it’s great you were able to find some solace with your needle and thread. This is a great project! Looking forward to watching it grow
That’s a big project you’ve taken on there, but it will be amazing when it’s done. Glad you’re on the mend – I always find stitching is a great way to pass time when you’re not feeling up to much else.
Your next project looks great! Good luck with stitching it!!!
you’re very brave to be tackling such a large design . . . we’ll be here to cheer you on ^^
Glad the surgery went well and you are feeling fine 🙂
You’ve made a healthy start on what looks to be a big project. It will be fun to see how much further you get now that you’re in better health!
