Slow and steady is getting me there, thanks to joining the SAL.I am stitching a birth sampler, long overdue as Master H is now 7 years old and this should have been ready for his first birthday. The characters are based on the stories by Nick Butterworth of Percy the Park Keeper.
This is where I was three weeks ago
and this is where I am now
I am back stitching the mice and the final leaf motif is complete in the top right hand corner.
and down the bottom I have started Percy himself!
Now I am worrying about those creases in the middle, will I get them out after all this time? Anyone have any tips?
Please have a look at the SAL updates below.

I have been following with interest the progress of the SAL at Sewing Beside the Sea . It has stirred my conscience. For 7 years I have supposedly been cross stitching a birth sampler for Mr H. This is as far I have got
two and a half motifs. This is totally not good. It is totally BAD. Holding head in shame. So I have asked to join in with the SAL , and been accepted which commits me to making some kind of progress each month. As I am half way through May nearly, my mission is to complete this motif so you can at least recognize what it is meant to be .
