SAL Update 9.18.22 | Scarlet Quince

Hello friends! Not a lot of progress this round as I’ve been super busy with custom orders each weekend this month, but I was able to squeeze in 157 stitches, 28.6% complete. The progress is mostly in the middle of the leaf. I’m leaving this project on the frame, on my stand where I can see it, in hopes of pulling it over for some little progress stitches whenever I can.

Here’s where I was before:

and here’s where I am now

SAL Update 8.28.22 | Scarlet Quince

It’s time for another 3 week update! I’m excited with the progress I made, because the stitches were bigger blocks of fill in vs confetti, which really helps to show progress.

Here’s where I was before:

And here’s where I am now! I accomplished putting in 334 stitches and am now at 28.4% complete.

SAL Update 8.7.22 | Scarlet Quince

Three weeks have flown by and it’s time for another update. For this update, I have put in 431 stitches and now at 28.1% complete. I’ve been at 27% for a long time, so I’m super happy to be in a new percent!

I enjoyed stitching on this piece while finishing the Outlander series. I loved it so much and was sad that the 5 seasons came to end. I’ve decided I would love to listen to the audio books and stitch a Scottish sampler while I listen. My sampler guild recently had a lecture on Scottish sampler clues, where I learned some fascinating history and saw beautifully stitched pieces. If you have a favorite Scottish reproduction sampler, please do leave them in the comments below!

I hope it’s cooler where you are, but if not, stay indoors and get plenty of stitching and sewing in! I couldn’t resist sharing this picture of our backyard squirrel imagining he’s relaxing in a pool at a resort 🙂

the bath has since been refilled for him ❤
