HAED Rotation

SAL TIME AGAIN.

Where does the time go. Now that I'm retired I am lucky to know what day of the week it is. These 3 week posts keep me in the loop as far as time is concerned.

I made good progress on Chocolate Chocolate and More Chocolate this time. Unfortunately it is December so the next project in the rotation came out yesterday.

Last time you saw CC&MC it looked like this.













When I put it away it looked like this.

Not the best angle but hopefully you can see the progress on the top of the top cupcake.












My December project is The Universe in a Jar. I really needed a change from all that brown. LOL.

Here is a full picture and then where I started on it yesterday.














Hopefully I will make more progress before the next update on Dec 23.

Please be sure to hop over and see what my fellow SAL mates are stitching. They are a very talented group of stitchers.

Also if you would like to join us here is info about the SAL

 
This SAL (Stitch Along) is slightly different to other SALs in that we don’t all stitch the same design at the same rate. We choose ONE unfinished project, or ONE new one, and show progress of its completion over a series of three weekly updates. There are no deadlines and no set amount to stitch. The result is that the space in our drawers full of WIPs (works in progress) is gradually being freed up to store lots of new crafty goodness. It’s surprising how much motivation I’ve gained from being in this SAL. If you’d like to finish a project you’ve left unfinished for a while, or start a new one with us, you can join us by contacting Avis fromSewing Beside the Sea.

See you all next time.

SAL UPDATE

It's that time of the month again. I was lazy last time and did not post an update. Bad me.

I have finally settled on a rotation for my over abundance of WIPS. I stitched on The Astronomer for the entire month of October. Then on November 1st I switched to Chocolate Chocolate and More Chocolate. On December 1st I will switch again to The Universe in a Jar. I think they deserve a month each.

So here is where I left off on The Astronomer. Loads of confetti so It doesn't look like much progress but I am happy with the months stitching.













Then on November 1st I picked this up.












I have made really good progress so far. Mostly because we already have snow so I'm not leaving the house much.

Here is today's starting point.













There is a lot of frosting on that cupcake LOL.

Please go check out the other great stitching being done by the members of this SAL and if you would like to join us contact Avis for details.

ARE YOU READY FOR THIS? SAL UPDATE

I managed to stick to one project for the entire month of September and I made good progress on it also. It helped that I signed up for a couple of challenges on one of my FB groups. Here is where I was the last SAL update:












And here is where I am now. Full picture and today's starting point.













This is Sanctuary of Knowledge  HAED Artist is Randal Spangler.

Not sure if I will switch projects for October. We'll see.

Please make sure you check out all of the talented stitchers that I am doing this SAL with. They are a great bunch and do some amazing stitching.

SAL UPDATE

No progress on the other 2 projects I  posted about last time. Had a great visit with my son and his girlfriend. Lots of laughter and remembering. They have now gone home till next summer. Wish they were closer.
After they left I looked at the  2 WIPS I should be working on but they were silent and trying to hide in the closet so what to do. Well get out another WIP that was yelling loudly that I hadn't touched it for a long time.

This is Sanctuary of Knowledge. Randal Spangler HAED. Do you see a trend here? He is my favorite HAED artist. Love his little dragons.













 Where I started when I picked it up.
                                       











Where it is now.
                                                                                                             













Hopefully it will keep my interest for the next 3 weeks.

Be sure to stop over and check out all of the other talented stitchers in this SAL. They are doing some amazing stitching.

JUST A QUICKIE THIS TIME.

I really didn't work exclusively on my SAL project. I did make some progress. I switched out again in the middle of the 3 week cycle. (bad me).

Last time.









And now.
















Then I switched to this. I should learn not to touch memories on Facebook. Gets me in trouble everytime.















I'm hopeless at stitching on just one thing at a time.

My son just arrived for a 2 week visit so I'm not sure how much progress I will have for next time.

Don't for get to stop & check out what all the other talented stitchers in this SAL are working on.

Till next time.

WHERE DOES THE TIME GO

I can't believe it is already time for another update. I have been stitching a lot the past 3 weeks as my knitting is being bad and is now in time out.

I worked on Play Ball for a week after the last update then my startitis hit again and I started a new one.

Here is Play Ball last time.












This is the small progress before it got kicked to the curb.













I have now been stitching on Ghost Stories. It is another of Randal Spangler's wonderful dragling charts.



I am stitching cross country on this one. The orange is so much fun.

We'll see how long this one lasts as there is another Halloween one that is also calling to me but I am trying to be good. (Usually doesn't work LOL)

There are many talented people who are stitching along with me. They are all working on amazing projects. Please drop by to see their wonderful work.

Also we are welcoming Deborah this time.

If you would like to join us please contact Avis for details.




 
Till next time. Happy Stitching.
