SAL “ Getting Ready” #12

Hello everyone!  Needle has been flying in order to have some decent progress to show for the SAL.  I worked on “Getting Ready” for a full week, putting in about 2 hours of stitching each evening.  This is a kit by Design Works, and adapted from a painting by Ronald West.

In order to admire progress, here’s a “before” photo from 6th May.

And “after”

Not bad, eh?  I’ve been concentrating on the second waiter but also adding a few other colours when I got bored of stitching with white & greys.  The tub of flowers on the right has a few leaves . . . the vase to the left is beginning to take shape . . . and the green shutters in the middle.  No backstitch added this time as I’d like to complete this big chunk and then bring it to life.

I’m now off to see what my fellow SAL stitchers have been up to on their various projects.
