SAL- update End of August

Three weeks seem to pass so quickly! But slow and steady is working. I am cross stitching a birth sampler for my grandson. It should have been ready for his first birthday, but knitting and life intervened and here we are and he’s seven already. The project had become a WIP!  Enter the SAL. Here’s where I was at the beginning of August.

There is an awful lot of green hedge to do now. The only way is to do a block of 10 from the bottom , then the next and so on.

Please see how the others have done this time, links below.

    You have done lots! Looking very good! Do you feel like the end is in sight now once all the greenery is added ?

  2. You´re doing a great work!

  3. Slow and steady is all it takes, and think of the satisfaction when you’re done!

  4. I think you’ve done loads! It’s getting better and better 🙂

  5. Those mice look brilliant! You’ve made so much progress on this since you joined the SAL. It’s such a help, isn’t it 🙂

    this is a lovely SAL project, easy to break up into stages – well done!

  7. It’s really coming together. All those tiny stitches though. You are so clever.

    • The light days of summer help. Not certain about the clever bit! Patience is certainly needed and it is very relaxing and satisfying to do. I used to do so much cross stitch and it’s lovely to have got back into it. Thanks Jane.

  8. It’s coming along really well now, isn’t it? It will be a lovely keepsake even if it has taken seven years so far!
