SAL Update #4 Project Onions and Gourds

This time of year is very tough for me to get much stitching done because I am a baker. Yesterday was a 10-1/2 hour day and it will only get worse as the weeks leading up to Christmas get closer. Throw my son’s and husband’s work schedules and basketball schedule in there and well…you know what I mean.

I worked on this project for about a week. I finished most of the first onion but for some reason was obsessed with finishing the black negative space of the project.

Here is where I was last time:


and here is where I am now:

I have been working on a few Christmas presents in between things. Here is a gift I stitched for my mother who loves to read:

Our Next Update is New Year’s Eve I believe (my son’s 16th birthday :)) I hope you all have a happy Christmas!

Please visit the other stitchers’ blogs in this group. I can’t tell you how talented this group is, you’ll have to see for yourself. -MM

  1. I think we all feel the same this time of year, life is hectic and my house looks like I haven’t tidied in a decade. You’ve made great progress on this, and I hope you have a few moments to yourself in the next few weeks.


  2. Hey, I can actually see progress on this piece! Good job, especially since you’ve got so much else going on in your life. I hope you have moments to rest and enjoy the holiday season. Wish your son a happy birthday for us (what a day for a birthday!).


      • I’ve been using felt rather than fabric for the back of my stitched bookmarks, I think it gives them a more finished look. Maybe you could give that a try? But it’s already great 😊
