SAL Project Onions and Gourds #6

What a beautiful sunny, winter morning it is here in Western NY! I can’t wait to get more stitching done today since I finally just got going again after the holiday.

I have spent the last five weeks organizing the huge amount of embroidery floss I received as a gift from my husband. Over 1000 skeins! I was so involved with getting the floss on the cardboard spools that I have only spent a couple of days stitching on my Onions and Gourds project.

Here is where I was three weeks ago on it:

and here is where I am now.

Not much, but it is something.

Please visit the other bloggers that are in our SAL (Stitch-A-Long). They are doing some beautiful work and you will see many types of stitching from these ladies. If you are interested in joining our SAL please contact Avis who is in the lead out of the links below.

See you in three weeks!

  1. That is a lot of floss! Great present πŸ™‚
    I do love doing a bit of floss organising. I have mine on Stitchbows and it’s very satisfying seeing them all lined up in their folders.


  2. Wow! What a wonderful gift from your husband! Where did he get all of these?
    Also, wonderful progress on your stitching. That’s a lot of shadow! How many black skeins do you think you’ll go through?
