SAL #1 Project Onions and Gourds

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.

  1. 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 🙂


  2. 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!


  3. 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


  4. 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.


  5. 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!
