SAL Update 5.14

Sorry friends for the delay on today’s post! I’ve been recovering from oral surgery this week as I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed. Ouch! Because of this, I was unable to schedule my SAL Update to post this morning, even though I did get some rest-in-bed-stitching done 🙂 Today is also Mother’s Day, so my husband and I spent the afternoon with our mom’s. We went on a historical home tour and had lunch. Luckily I survived the tour in my condition. I’m doing ok, but I’m not 100% recovered. I still have some soreness in my lower jaw, eating soft foods, and taking my meds. Luckily, Sunday is still here and I’m just getting around to writing my SAL Update.

Here’s where I’m at with Winnie the Pooh and his pals. I completed filling Pooh in and continued working on Eeyore. I’m so excited seeing this from afar. Eeyore’s head is turned toward Pooh and Piglet, so the black stitches are forming his other ear, if you can imagine.

SAL Update 5.14

For the month of May, my quilt shop drew the number 6 for our UFO Challenge. #6 on my list is to complete 3 Beeutiful QAL blocks. If you remember, I joined this group working on these embroidery blocks, but had stopped to focus on Winnie the Pooh. So far I’ve completed 1 embroidery block, #8 of the series. I’m currently working on #9 and have yet to start #10.

Finally, I would like to show off my new project bag that my mom sewed up for me. Even though it’s Mother’s Day, mom always has a gift for me. She is so giving, so supportive, and so loving. Thank you again mom for this beautiful bag!

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!
