SAL Update 1.5.20

Happy New Year everyone! I hope everyone had a safe and joyous holiday. Did you make any resolutions? Or crafty plans for the new year? I’ve been thinking about my 2020 plans, but haven’t had the chance to put it all down on paper.

Onto the stitching, shall we? I was so very close to a finish. I know we all thought there would be a happy dance today and I had really hoped I could make that happen especially with the first SAL update of the year. While I did do a lot of stitching this past week, I could have done more, but I’ve been sick since Monday with a virus and it’s been a rough few days.

Here’s where I was before, making my way through the top border.

BEFORE

And here’s my progress since then. I did finish the top border and I also made a great start to the bottom border. Definitely on the next update, you will see a finish!!

AFTER

We’re also starting the new year with a new member in our SAL group! Welcome AJ! I look forward to seeing what you’re working on and hope you love the inspiration you’ll get from our lovely group of stitchers.

SAL Update 11.24

Hello stitching friends! I’m very excited that I was able to meet my goal and finish the last animal block from Into the Jungle by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. Say hello to this sweet little Jaguar ❤

AFTER
All Animal Blocks Complete!

This completes the center of the chart. All the animal blocks are complete and I can start working on the top border. If I can put all my stitching time into this piece, I might be able to finish both top and bottom border and consider this one finished!!

The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery also started their own YouTube channel! They talk about their patterns, upcoming designs, and all the other crafting they do which includes garment sewing, knitting, quilting, and more! Check them out here.
