SAL – Fellowship of the hooties #04

32 Comments

This is the scheduled three-weekly post for the SAL that I’m doing with several other crafty blogs and I’ve finished Fellowship of the hooties. It’s taken me a little longer than I hoped but I loved stitching it and I love the design. I’m very tempted to buy more of the Hooties designs from Pinoy Stitch on Etsy as there are some brilliant ones.

I only had two owls left to do after the last update. This one is Boromir.And this one is Gimli, who was another favourite to stitch. This is the finished item. I’ve no idea how I’m going to finish this one off. I’ll pop it in the box for now and see if inspiration strikes.

I’ve already started pulling together a selection of projects for next year but I may stitch a bit on an old project for now and see how I go with that.

I think a few other people in the SAL have happy dances this time so lots of lovely new projects coming soon 🙂

For the stitch-a-long I’m linking up to these lovely blogs:
Avis, Claire, Gun, Sue, Constanze, Christina, Kathy, Margaret, Cindy, Linda, Heidi, Jackie, Sunny, Hayley, Megan, Deborah, Mary Margaret, Renee, Jenny, Carmela, Jocelyn, Sharon, Daisy, Anne, Connie

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.

  1. Very cute 😀 Do you plan a series of pieces to do each year, or what?

    • Thank you 🙂

      I was a bit frustrated that I only got one project stitched in 2018 so for this year, I picked out five projects, worked out roughly how many SAL updates each one would need, and then mapped it all out in a nice spreadsheet. (I love spreadsheets!)
      It worked well so I’m doing something similar for next year in the hopes I can be as productive 🙂

      My WIP box isn’t looking too bad at the moment. Mainly I want to finish Precious Dreams and a SAL with lots of different stitches. If you want a clue to what’s coming up next year, click on Cross Stitch at the top of this page.

  8. Very cute ! Congratulations on the happy dance. Not sure what you could finish it in, if it’s quite small maybe a book sleeve or something ?

      It’s more cushion size but although I love to see cross stitch finished that way, I’m always wary of the cats. My cushion covers are constantly in the wash as they get covered in fur. I suspect it’ll end up on the wall eventually, but how is a different matter LOL

  13. Hurry for another great finish! I’m Happy Dancing this time too 🙂 I’d say, definitely finish a WIP if you have one, rather than starting something new next time. Easy for me to say when I have no WIPs hehe.

    • Thanks! It’s great that so many of us are dancing this time. There’s enough of us to have our own disco LOL

      I’m going to try to finish Precious Dreams, but I’ll probably do it in stages rather than try to do it all at once. It’s so stitch intensive and requires a lot more concentration than most of the patterns that I stitch.

      You’re very virtuous having no WIPs. I’m envious LOL

      I can’t wait to see what you’re doing next. You and Avis always pick such brilliant designs to work on. Are you doing one together again? (or is that hush hush 😉 )
