Project Onions and Gourds #7

I am so excited! I got a ton stitched this time. Things are starting to take shape although it’s still messy looking. It will be much more recognizable as gourds and onions next time. Here is where I was last update: And here is where I am now: Another gourd is taking shape! Please checkContinue reading “Project Onions and Gourds #7”

SAL Update Project Onions and Gourds

Christmas is over in the bakery for us and this year we baked over 550 dozen cookies. That’s over 6600 cookies! That doesn’t include the dozens of breads, pies, rolls and other sugary confections we made. Needless to say I got zero progress done on my SAL in the last three weeks. My hands neededContinue reading “SAL Update Project Onions and Gourds”

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 knowContinue reading “SAL Update #4 Project Onions and Gourds”

SAL #2 Project Onions and Gourds 

It’s been three weeks since my first update on my new project. Project Onions and Gourds is a gigantic stitching dream for me. My largest yet. Ten pages to be exact. I got a lot done!  Here is where I was last time: And here I am at present: Hopefully by next time I willContinue reading “SAL #2 Project Onions and Gourds “

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 stitchingContinue reading “SAL #1 Project Onions and Gourds”

SAL Autumn Tree Project

Well I thought I was doing pretty well with this project until I took a photo of it just now. This is my first time charting my own project and it just doesn’t photograph as well as I would like.  Here is where I was 3 weeks ago: And here is where I am now:Continue reading “SAL Autumn Tree Project”

SAL Project Peacock Done!

Woohoo!  I can do the happy dance because Mr. Salvador the peacock is complete. The only thing I would like to add to him is possibly some tiny beading to give him a little sparkle before I frame him. I am still looking for the right frame for this project so I will post againContinue reading “SAL Project Peacock Done!”

SAL Project Peacock and New Project Update

The last 3 weeks have gone by so fast and we have been so busy I only have worked on Salvador for a couple of hours. Sad I know but it is summer here in the US and busy is the name of the game for about another 2 months.   I am slow finishingContinue reading “SAL Project Peacock and New Project Update”

SAL Update Project Peacock June25

I am so close to being done, but unfortunately I just couldn’t finish Mr. Salvador in the last 3 weeks. I ran out of the light brown and didn’t get to the craft store until a few days ago because I was so busy with work and home responsibilities.  So, here is where I wasContinue reading “SAL Update Project Peacock June25”

Here is where I left off three weeks ago: And here is what I have done as ofContinue reading “SAL Update – Project Peacock”
