I love these posts that have ready-made titles!
It's time for our Stitch Along group to share their progress (or lack thereof!). I'm happy to report I have some progress to share. Not a lot, but enough. As my shoulder continues to improve I'm doing a little less embroidery and a bit more of other activities.
Technically I'm supposed to be embroidering the second in the series of gingerbread houses from Joy McDonald. I have at least traced the house onto my foundation fabric. No stitches have been taken yet though. Instead I have stitched on the other two projects I worked on while I waited for the house pattern to be released. This tea towel:
On which I have given the butterflies yellow spots on their wingtips and stitched most of one of the flowers:
I think there are a couple of accent stitches that still need to be put in on the main blossom. The pattern didn't transfer as cleanly on this half of the towel as it did on the other. I blame my ancient, warped ironing board for that.
The other project I've been making slow progress on is this pillow cover from Sublime Stitching.
It may be hard to discern any progress on this piece but trust me, it's there. 😉
I've finished up all the darker green lines and started putting in some of the stars.
I have two needlepoint projects in the works as well. You can read about them in this post.
The stitchers in this SAL live all over the globe and each works on her own project. If you'd like to join our ranks you can let Avis know via her blog.
