SAL Update 5.15.22 | Scarlet Quince

Sorry to say, another small update for me this round. I actually stitched for the first time in two weeks yesterday on another project. Today I put in 101 stitches on my Scarlet Quince piece. I would have done more, but the app where I keep track of my progress was not working for me yesterday.

Here’s where I was before:

And here I am today. All 101 stitches were done in the same color.

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 4.24.22 | Nature Diary

Oops! No progress to report on my full coverage project. I definitely wanted to work on it, but these last three weeks have been especially busy with custom orders and preparing for an upcoming trip. In fact, I think the only stitching I’ve gotten in lately was a new start at the dealership when I was waiting on my oil change and car inspection… So with that, I want to leave you with some cute progress on my Nature Diary Series (aka for the Junk Journal) I think the last time I stitched on this was the beginning of the month:

SAL Update 4.3.22 | Scarlet Quince

Time to pick another project for my SAL Update! I decided to go to my oldest WIP, which is my full coverage piece by Scarlet Quince, Passion Flower and Hummingbirds. I haven’t touched this piece since 2019 and its around 10 years old. Ugh, just saying that out loud! I debated retiring this piece fully, but decided to give it one more round before making my decision. Might be wasted stitches, but I guess we’ll see if I can make some decent progress and keep this one going. I decided to move the project onto a Q-Snap vs the scroll frame to see if that would entice me to stitch more on it. Here’s where I was in 2019:

This round I put in 478 stitches and am at 26.1% complete.
