SAL – Garden Cat #4


This is the scheduled three-weekly post for the SAL that I’m doing with several other crafty blogs and page four is well under way.

I haven’t done page three yet, but I wanted to do the page with most of the cat on it first. He straddles the lower two pages so it was easiest to do him and then carry on with the flowers.


I just need to finish his tail, put his face on and do the last few flowers on that side, and then page four is complete. I hope to have that done for the next update and maybe some of page three as well.

For the stitch-a-long I’m linking up to these lovely blogs:

Avis at Sewing beside the sea
Claire at Claire93
Kate at Tall tales from Chiconia
Gun at Rutigt
Wendy at The crafter’s apprentice
Lucy at Lucyannluna
Sue at The Magpie’s nest
Constanze at Textile Dreamer
Jess at Ever the crafter
DebbieRose at Sew Rosey
Christina at Petals and Pins
Susan at SusanPblog
Kathy at Sewing etc

Not everyone does an update each time, but their blogs are always worth a visit.
