Sal update April 15

Well I have to say I’m happy with the way it’s going so far on this last row. I’m sure the next couple pages will be a nightmare but doing the background has been relaxing so a nice way to pick it up again.

I can’t wait to see this final row come together.

At some point I’m going to have to go back to the previous section and finish the snow globe and sleeve but I can’t even think about all the confetti stitches in that area right now. I suspect that I will fill in some of it as I come across the colours working the bottom row.

It’s been pretty quiet here this week. The wonderful man of mine is currently studying for exams so that’s keeping him busy.

Tidus is as crazy as ever. He’s gone from being the shy little boy to a big brute who has chewed a hole in my floor Bwahahaha.

The poor bird was not terribly impressed with him.

We have discovered that if we give him a stick to hold in his mouth while walking it goes much more smoothly, generally we walk him in a fairly busy park with other animals so distractions are sometimes a real problem.

I’m happy to be back among you great group of stitchers and have been sneaking around the last little while looking at what’s been going on while I was gone.

Hope everyone is doing well, your projects are amazing as always!!!

  2. Welcome back 🙂 You’ve done loads and it looks great! Everything in life is so exciting for a puppy isn’t it?

    Welcome back! Progress is amazing as always and that pup sure is a cutie! I love that he is more behaved with a stick in his mouth when he walks 😂

    Welcome back, Timothy, as always I am amazed at how quickly you plow through such a monster piece, wow! It’s looking great!

    Good that you’re able to find time for stitching again, although I suspect that lovely fur kid is using up a load more than his fair share of your time. Just keep Santa away from his attention!


    • Oh it’s a mad house trying to keep the animals away from the stitching. I actually hang it on the wall when I’m not working on it. With the puppy, 2 cats, and 2 ferrets there’s always someone running around lol

  6. Good progress and my how Tidus seems to have grown in three weeks. Would be nice if our stitching could grow as fast.

    Your santa is looking wonderful! And puppies are a lot of work, but they are definitely worth it!
