SAL Update 8.23.20

Happy Sunday everyone! On my last SAL update I had made a pretty great start on Block 13 Bee Romantic. While it was my goal to complete the block, the last 3 weeks kind of got away from me! Here’s where I was last time:

BEFORE

I was able to complete the bicycle and get started with the flowers. You’ll notice some minor changes in the wheel spokes, the direction of some of them were driving me crazy, lol! My friend Leah also sent me a sweet gift in the mail, which included that notions tin you see in the top right.

AFTER

Here’s a better view of that sweet basket of flowers:

I also mentioned in a previous post how I couldn’t embroider as long because my fingers would hurt. I know some of you mentioned experiencing the same. I’ve tried a variety of products along the years, but I finally found a product that works. I got it in the mail on Friday, so I didn’t get to use it long, but I definitely made great weekend progress because of them! They are the LoRan Needle Pullers. Have you tried them?

We post an update on our own project every three weeks and encourage each other to make more progress and stay motivated. I’m looking forward to seeing how the rest of the SAL group has progressed with their projects this time around. Read along with me by clicking the blog links below:

Avis, Claire, Gun, Carole, Sue, Constanze, Kathy, Margaret, Cindy, Heidi, Jackie, Sunny, Hayley, Megan, Deborah, Mary Margaret, Renee, Carmela, Sharon, Daisy, Anne, Connie, AJ, Jenny, Laura, Cathie, Linda, and Helen

Happy Stitching!

    • Thanks, Carole! I’m definitely going to bust out my book of embroidery stitches to help with the creativity πŸ™‚ I’m definitely thinking french knots to look like hydrangeas.

    • Thank you, Sharon! I can cross stitch with no problem for a long period of time, but I’m squeezing the needle a little more with embroidery to get that thread through the tightly woven fabric. I worked on another embroidery piece that has you use all 6 strands and that one was a killer on the fingers!
