This is the scheduled three-weekly post for the SAL that I’m doing with several other crafty blogs.
Having finished the Flower Sampler Book for the last update (Hooray!), I needed to find a new project for the SAL. I do have one that would be perfect but I’m trying not to start any more new projects until I’ve got that WIP box down a bit.
So, I had a rummage through the box to see which one I could tackle next. I pulled out a Winnie the Pooh calendar that has sat in there for a few years and spent a couple of hours stitching on it. Then I put it back in the box, where it will probably stay for a good while longer. It’s on aida and has fractional stitches. How I wish I’d swapped the kit fabric out for some nice evenweave. That aida was vile to stitch on.
Next out of the box was one by Stitchtastic that depicts Lewis Hamilton sitting in his McLaren. Yes, it’s another old one, and it feels odd stitching it now that he’s driving a Mercedes. I have done a fair bit of stitching on it though and am determined to finish it. Happily I did swap the kit fabric for something nicer to stitch on so no vile aida to contend with this time.
This is where I left it two years ago.
This is the section that I’ve just finished off.
Once you get the confetti done, the tyres aren’t too bad to stitch as you get chunks of one colour. They extend a fair way down into page four, so hopefully that won’t take me too long. A couple more updates, possibly? Fingers crossed.
