SAL Update 3.29.20

Hello everyone! I hope you are all healthy and positive during this time…and getting some extra stitchy time in as well!

Here’s where I was last time on Madame Chantilly’s Pumpkins Thieves:

BEFORE

And here is where I am now…. A happy dance finish!! I just love how this turned out. I stitched this on 32 count Lakeside Linens in the color Vintage Maritime White, using a variety of DMC, Classic Colorworks, and Weeks Dye Works floss.

AFTER

I finished this on 3/18 and started a new project on 3/19 in celebration of Spring. I’m stitching along with @stitchedlit on Instagram, where you can check out her progress as well! We started Time of Flowers by Alicia Paulson. Earlier this year I finished First Snow by Alicia Paulson, so you can expect some more sweet whimsical stitching from my updates! Here’s what Time of Flowers looks like:

Here’s the progress I’ve made so far! I’m stitching this on 36 count linen in the color Fern by Colour and Cotton. I received this fabric in one of my monthly subscription deliveries. I’m using most of the called for DMC floss. The fabric is darker than pictured below, but lighter than the fabric used above. I started on the top left corner. Claire started hers in the center and you can check that out on instagram.

SAL Update 3.8.20

Stitching has slowed down a little for me, but happy that I have 3 finishes under my belt so far for 2020. This time I decided to pick up Pumpkins Thieves by Madame Chantilly. I started this as a stitch along on Instagram back on October 5th, 2018.

Here’s the progress I made before stopping in June 2019:

June 2019 Progress

For progress made these last three weeks, I completed the carriage and moved the q-snap over to continue the rope, pumpkins, and second kitty. I’m really close to a finish. All I have left are some clouds, moon, and quilty star motifs. Here’s where I am now:

SAL Update 2.16.20

I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day! It’s been 3 weeks since our last update and I was very productive with my stitching! On the last update I showed you where I was on Christmas Dollhouse by Natalia Luneva and I was able to finish it on February 1st. Time for another Happy Dance!

Here’s where I was last update:

And here’s my finish!

I had picked out First Snow by Alicia Paulson for my next project….but I also managed to finish it before our update! I started First Snow on 11/2/2019 and I put it away on 11/19/2019. As soon as I was done with Christmas Dollhouse, I immediately got to work on First Snow and finished it on 2/12/2020!
