This is the scheduled three-weekly post for the SAL that I’m doing with several other crafty blogs and I’ve finally got back to doing some cross stitch. It was close though. I’ve spent most of the past three weeks trying to decide whether to get the other Dance on the beach blanket finished or do some cross stitch. And, if it was cross stitch, should it be a new start – something small to tempt me back, or an existing WIP?
Then I got the email from Avis letting me know that the update was due in a few days. Yikes! Where did three weeks go?
A decision needed to be made quickly if I was going to have anything to post today, which ruled out a new start, so I grabbed the cross stitch project that was most ready to go and got cracking.
This is what it looked like back in May when it last got some attention.
It’s a bit hairy. I don’t know if the black fabric just shows the cat hair more or if there’s more of it about these days. I’ve taken the lint roller to it a few times but I keep having to pick hairs out of the way as I stitch. I suspect a lot of hairs will get worked in to the design. Lets call them speciality threads, eh?
This is where I’ve got to now.
I haven’t made a great deal of progress, but considering how late I left it to pick it up, you can at least see what I’ve done. Hopefully there’ll be more done for the next update, especially as I’ve bribed myself by promising myself a new start on Crazy cat lady once this one is finished. (and I really, really want to stitch Crazy cat lady)
For the stitch-a-long I’m linking up to these lovely blogs:
Look how many of us there are now! Do allow for people being in different time zones, so not posting all at the same time, but it’s well worth doing a bit of blog hopping to see all the lovely projects that are being worked on.
