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 finishing this project because all of the fun colors are done and I am left with the super light browns and creams and whites which are very unexciting.
I don’t know if you can see much of a difference but I did finish 3 more colors completely. There is back stitching to do too.
Here is where I stopped 3 weeks ago:
And here is where I am today:
I have to admit I did start a new project and that took some of my SAL time.
I am learning to design my own cross-stitch designs and charts. For those of you that design your own I admire you greatly. It’s hard work and I have already modified and ripped a bunch of stitches out and restitched. It takes patience but I am loving it so far!
Here is a glimpse of what I have started to design:
It’s going to be an autumn tree with some sort of saying whether a Biblical quote or something else. Lots of red and orange and yellow leaves. I have already modified and ripped out the trunk once.
I have got to get a better chart drawn. When I asked the woman at Joanne Fabrics if they had any graph paper she had no clue what I was talking about. Sigh…
I can’t wait to keep going with both projects! Until next time… -MM
