SAL Update 5.2.21

Finally! Block 17 Bee Happy is now finished! In fact, I finished it today and the block is fresh out of the sink laying out to dry. It took a while for all of the water soluble stabilizer to come out of all those tiny spaces. My hands definitely hurt, this block was heavy in backstitch as you can see. Probably my least favorite block to stitch, but it might be my favorite finished block!

Here’s where I was before:

Here’s the finished block!

SAL Update 4.12.21

Apologies to my SAL friends, Sunday got away from me and I’m posting my update a day late. Thank you all so much for voting last time on which sunflower you wanted to see next. Burgundy was the winner and I’m happy to see a full flower in this color. Petals and centers are finally done. Now I just need to backstitch all the stems in green, finish up the bees, and move on to the next block!

Here’s where I was before:

And here’s where I am now! Sorry for the wrinkles, I’m having to stitch in hand due to the wool centers.

SAL Update 3.21.21

Happy SAL Day and Happy Spring! I completed one more sunflower on Block 17 Bee Happy. This one is definitely taking more time than I thought… so many petals! Here’s what it looks like now with a more cool-tone yellow next to the warmer one:

I need your hep deciding which color to go next. Either the warm yellow again, so two flank either side of the bright one… Or another burgundy one, then the warm yellow after? I’ll tally the votes and hopefully we’ll have completed sunflower petals for the next update!
