Stitching Along at the End of May

This is the second SAL check-in during May. Some months are like that! I don't have a lot to share this time around as I've been doing more patchwork than needlework of late. I also don't have a deadline of any kind pushing me to work on a specific project. Which is why this stitch along comes in handy. 😉

I've completed the next embroidered block of the month on offer from Joy.


I think this one was technically for April. I might get caught up by the end of the program. Next up is Kindness. I still have to transfer the pattern for that one. I've been simply tracing the patterns onto the fabric with a soft pencil, up against our sliding glass door. It's easy enough but I don't get ideal results. I can't seem to even stay on a straight line for more than 1 cm these days. May have to recruit younger, steadier hands to transfer my patterns in the future. Not that I'm all that old mind you! I never could draw a straight line; the aging process isn't helping matters any.

There's a whole flock of us in this SAL, all around the world and working on our different projects. You can see what everyone else is doing by clicking on their links below. For those of you in the EU, I understand there will be a notice informing you of Blogger's privacy policies when you come to visit now. I think it's a one-and-done situation where you give your consent and then won't be bothered by the notice in the future. Oh, and Happy Memorial Day to those in the United States!

  1. What a sweet piece of embroidery! My screen door is also my Light box, some days Re better than others for tracing!

  2. Love the tiny butterfly! I think both Google and the blogging platforms have automated the privacy notices very efficiently; can you imagine if you had to notify all your followers individually or lose them promptly? NIghtmare!

  3. This is very cute! There’s so many ways of transferring designs, just use what works for you!

    1. I've invested in a couple of new tools. We'll see how well they work for me. ;-)

  7. Very neat stitching, I made a light box out of a cheap box frame from Ikea with some battery LED lights inside (also Ikea!)

    1. My son did something like that so he'd have a light box for the work he does. I'm thinking I may have him do my tracing for me in the future. ;-)
