Sal update “Christmas Magic”

Oh so happy to have made progress on this, finished the first page of the last row and put a good dent in the second page. much to my surprise the page had the largest part of the same colour that I have come across so far. The excitement of this being finished is starting to get me motivated to get to the end.

Here’s where I started off at after the last update:

I had some time on my hands the last few weeks so I managed to get quite a bit of stitching done. Normally I take a picture every few hours because I’m planning on putting them all together in a slide show when it’s finished. But I got lost in the stitching a bit so there’s a few pictures that are “missing”

Here’s where I am now:

If I can keep up this pace it’s only a matter of weeks before it’s done.

Guess who is spending the day stitching with the puppy? …. like how I just worked him into that? I can’t resist …

We get to walk in some beautiful places so most mornings we hop out of bed and go for a 2.5km walk through a park close to our home.

We went through a whole teething nightmare for about the last three weeks where his baby teeth got really brittle which meant little needle teeth for a few weeks. 😡 there were some unhappy cats and humans till they fell out. And a few we had to hold him down to pull them they were causing him some discomfort.

I have to say adult teeth are wonderful when your dog is “all-mouth-all-the-time” lol.

That’s my little rant for this time.

Take some time to stop by my fellow artisans and check out their amazing projects. Pssss… check out their bios as well they lead some very interesting lives😁

    You have been stitching like crazy, so much finished. This must be the last “row” of charts for this picture then? Your mountains are gorgeous, remind me of the Rockies.😍

    Cute pup! Always amazed at the amount of stitching you get done! Looking good and I agree, you’ll be done in no time 🙂

    You certainly did get stuck into the stitching there, remarkable progress, despite Lil’ Needletooth and his ‘pointed’ attentions… Lovely place for walking him, and it sounds as if you’re going to get really fit as an added bonus!

    Wow, you do live in a beautiful area! And what great progress on the Christmas piece. You really think you could finish in a couple of weeks (with the stipulation of lots of time in which to stitch of course)? We’re cheering you on. 🙂

    It’s beautiful, and so’s your pup 🙂


  14. Great its growing. Also three weeks in the life of a pup means he is growing fast too.
