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”

SAL Update – Project Peacock

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

SAL Update Project Peacock

Three weeks ago I was struggling with having to rip a section of my project out because if I didn’t, it would look “off”. After ripping out the bottom of the tree branch on the right side I have successfully stitched it back into place. Unfortunately I was again tired the other night, (I know,Continue reading “SAL Update Project Peacock”

At this point, progress on Sal’s tail is slow going and giving me a bit of an eye twitch. Here isContinue reading “SAL Project Peacock #3”

Project Peacock SAL Update 2

It’s been three weeks since my last post on my Peacock friend and also since I joined a lovely group of ladies (and gentleman :)) in their Stitch-A-Long Group (SAL). I have gotten a lot done mostly on its tail feathers but also some on the side branches. Here is a photo of the lastContinue reading “Project Peacock SAL Update 2”

My First SAL (Stitch-A-Long) Post

I came across a group of bloggers here on WordPress who are part of a Stitch-A-Long group of stitchers. A SAL is a group designed to help motivate and encourage us to finish projects one at a time. How many of us have multiple projects, unfinished sitting in a drawer? This group is a greatContinue reading “My First SAL (Stitch-A-Long) Post”

Poppy Remembrance Project

  I finally finished it! It took two years on and off but I finally finished my lovely poppy remembrance field. This cross-stitch project was my most challenging yet and at times made my eyes cross but it was worth it. Over 23,000 stitches. All that’s left to do is mount and frame it. IContinue reading “Poppy Remembrance Project”
