SAL Update 1.9.22 | Beeutiful QAL Block 19

I hope 2022 is off to a great start for you and that you have lots of great crafty plans in the works! I really do hope to share with you more projects this year. This year I’m doing the APQ Resolution Challenge for quilty UFOs and I also have a new craft (or two) that I want to share my progress on. Anyhow, let’s get to the Beeutiful QAL embroidery project that feels like I’ve been stitching on for forever! I’m still working on this second to last block and boy is it time consuming – from those tires I’m sure. Here’s where I was before:

And here’s where I am now! The truck is now complete and all I have left are the flowers and the bees. Love the cute detail in the license plate. You can see in the original print the year was 2016 when designed! Has this project been sitting in my UFO pile for that long??

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:

SAL Update 11.28.21

Hi friends, I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving. I’m still working on Block 19 – Bee Adventurous. I joined my mom on a 7 hour round trip drive on Friday and that’s when I put in the most progress since we last updated you 3 weeks ago. I was able to finish the minty green backstitch for the majority of the truck and made a start on the satin stitch tires. The tires are taking forever and I’m not the best at satin stitching, so this is making for much needed practice. Here’s where I was before:

and here I am now!
