SAL Update 

So… work and life have gotten in the way of my stitching and if I’m being completely honest it’s making me mad. Every single time I plan to sit down and work on this piece something comes up that interrupts it…

And while I’m on this topic anyways… any of the crafty people will understand that when you’re working on a project it can keep your attention for hours at a time… this means I really don’t want to have to stop what I’m doing every little while to do something for someone else. I’m just about to the point that I’m going to run away and live in a cabin in the woods somewhere that nobody even knows where I am.

I’m sure those of you with children and or pets can relate. And I don’t even have children!!!! I don’t know how you do it!!! Such as right now my pets have had me up three times in the amount of time it took to write this. I’m actually finding it very overwhelming lately…

Anyways onto the important stuff.

My progress so far…

I’m very pleased with my decision to work the last three pages of the top row all at once. I found the background went much quicker this way.

A couple progress pictures along the way:

On a not so light note. One of the members of this sal. Susan over at has had to take a break from the sal and I would like to wish her all the best and a quick recovery. Her stitchy updates will be missed until she returns.
I’m gonna try to fit in a few minutes of stitchy time before bed. So head over to the other members pages and check them out.

    You are at least making progress. I can’t say the same thing. My stitchy bug seems to be missing lately. Hopefully you will find some time to do more stitching.


  2. Can I come join you in your little cabin? Real life is really demanding sometimes! Excellent progress too 🙂

    That looks like a lot of progress to me. But I know how fustrating it is to be interrupted when crafting

    good progress.
    And I totally agree: children & pets do get in the way of crafting. I sometimes wonder why we bother having them ^^

    I’d never have known about the constant interruptions unless you’d said so – you’ve done loads! But I do agree, everyday life is SO disruptive!

    Loving all the progress. Your project is growing nicely.
    Love the sound of that cabin too. Much as I love my cats, they can be demanding when I’m trying to find some stitchy time 🙂

    A stitching retreat at a cabin in the woods…sounds wonderful! And I agree with our cohort, you have made more progress than you think!

    I know the feeling 🙂 The cats just have to sleep in your lap……how could I stitch then? Still you managed to do some progress! Good work!


  12. That is an incredibly intense project to work on! I can relate to wanting to start another project. You are doing a fabulous job. What will you do with it when you get it done?


  13. Hi – Love seeing your progress updates on this, it’s looking awesome. Lots of confetti really bugs me too but I have to admit, when it’s finished it will be worth it – it really does seem to add depth to a picture.

    I worked on a piece once and it frustrated the hell out of me when I’d re-thread the needle with what to my naked eye looked like exactly the same shade I’d just stitched with – #frustrating

    On a different note, I just nominated you for a Liebster Blogging award! If you’d like to accept you can read about what to do in my blog post here:
