SAL – I never finish #01


This is the scheduled three-weekly post for the SAL that I’m doing with several other crafty blogs and I started and finished a wee project that’s been in my stash for years.

Last time I showed you the stash photo with that gorgeous orange fabric and some pretty Threadworx thread. This is what I made with it. Hopefully I’ll be proving that saying wrong LOL

The chart was bought from Etsy, from Nerdy Little Stitcher. I ignored the colour suggestions as I wanted to use the colour-changing thread. The fabric is from Sparklies and is 28 ct Britney in Pumpkin patch.

It’s a lot smaller than I remembered from when I put the kit together so I’m going to do another smaller project before going back to Precious Dreams. I’ve just spent some time some prepping a few small kits so they’re all ready to go. I’ve replaced the horrible aida with some nice soft 32 count Murano, and have put all the threads onto the cards and marked them with the symbols.

I’ve made a start on one of them. Just a few stitches, mind. Can you guess what it is? LOL Also, I’ve just noticed that there’s a cat hair on there already!

For the stitch-a-long I’m linking up to these lovely blogs:
Avis, Claire, Gun, Sue, Constanze, Christina, Kathy, Margaret, CindyHeidi, Jackie, Sunny, Hayley, Megan, DeborahMary Margaret, ReneeCarmela, Jocelyn, Sharon, Daisy, Anne, Connie, AJ, Jenny, Laura, Cathie, Linda

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.

  4. I’ve been to Nerdy Little Stitcher shop and seen that one you stitched. It always makes me smile. Love that you have lots of ideas for stitching on the go. Lovely fabrics to use too which makes all the difference sometimes.


  5. HAHAHAHAHA! So funny 🙂


  6. I love that saying! I occasionally finish something, but my finishes have been few and far between recently.


  7. Lol! What a great little piece! I can totally understand needing to take a break from the other, larger project you have underway.


  8. What a cute piece. I think it would bother my sense of perfection though. I love the fabric color. That new start looks like a pretty flower being stitched.

  13. How sweet! Really nice the writing! It’s a pansy flower? …I love cats


  14. I’ve seen that small design before and found it funny. There are quite a few designs I like but wouldn’t know what to do with them afterwards haha. Am assuming the new start will have flowers?


  15. Haha! That’s a fun one! The variegated thread is a perfect choice. I love Threadworx.


  16. I love the never finish…though mine would have to read something like, usually I finish thi…
