SAL Update 10.09.22 | Scarlet Quince

I’ve been stitching away and made some great progress. This time around I worked on filling the space between the leaf and the flower bud. I put in 664 stitches and am at 29.3% complete!

Here’s where I was before:

and here’s where I am at now:

I think for the next round I will start working downward and continue the background fill in, which is less color changes, and should get me closer to the 30% completion.

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:

  1. You really made some great progress. This is really an intricate X stitch project. I’ve had problems with my close matched color threads. I can’t imagine what it’s taken to work this one.


  2. I don’t have a way to determine how many stitches I complete each time. It is nice to know. I like how this piece is progressing. Filling in the background makes the picture pop and makes it feel like you’ve accomplished so much more. I really like how that background is looking.


    • Thanks Cathie! I usually don’t count my stitches, but the scarlet quince app where I track my progress, counts it for me! It’s nice to track how much I’ve accomplished 😊

    • Thank you so much! Yes, I’ll definitely enjoy the mindless fill in for a change. There might still be 4 different light shades there, but it beats 15 or more color changes around the leaf. πŸ˜†


  3. Wow that’s a massive update! I think it’s great how you’re tracking it because with a pattern like this it’s harder to realise how much you’ve done but it’s no small progress!
