SAL Update 4.23

Since our last update, I’ve just been working away at filling in Pooh Bear. Completed one arm and working on the next. I think I’ll work on the left side afterwards and take a break from the yellow 🙂

SAL Update 4.2

Not too much progress for me this week. I’ve been pretty busy in the garden and just finished replanting the raised beds with eggplants, tomatoes, green beans, and more! Stay tuned for that update 🙂

Since my last SAL post, I’ve added just a bit more outlining to complete Pooh’s belly and decided to add some interest by filling in Piglet’s clothes. I really love the shade of green here. I then started working on filling in the golden yellow. Hopefully I’ll have that complete by our next update. Goal created!

SAL Update 3.12

Hello Friends, it’s that time again to share with you my stitching update!

A couple of weekends ago, mom and I had a hand sewing get together. She worked on her Karen Buckley applique, which I should of snapped some pictures of, and I continued on my Winnie the Pooh cross stitch. I noticed there was a lot of black stitching and so I decided to continue the outlining and create myself a “coloring page”.

This allowed me to move on to a 3rd page of the pattern, which is just a little bit left to finish Pooh’s tummy. I think I’ll spend some time today doing just that!

Yesterday was also a great day spent at the Dallas Quilt Show and I wanted to share with you a couple of pictures.

We all got some great goodies! The sign above is so true 🙂 The double gauze kit with the cute little animals has been on my want list since I spotted it at the International Quilt Show, but it was being used in a demo and not for sale. So happy I spotted it along with the floral single gauze to the right of it. I also bought some neutral 1/2 yard selections with more cute animal prints. Instead of a pattern, I bought Simply Moderne magazine, which has some amazing patterns I can’t wait to try!
