SAL “Getting Ready” #13

My SAL stitching on “Getting Ready” has been rather eratic these past few weeks.  Rather like my other crafting where I seem to have been moving rapidly from one project to another (all will be revealed very soon!).

Last time, in May, I showed you this photo

I really should have done some backstitch to give the waiter on the left a face, but instead, I just kept threading up my needle with different colours, and stitching a bit here & there.  The result of which looks like this

Not too shabby but still quite a lot to do.

  1. I know nothing about cross stitch – apart from the fact that I never want to do any – but it sort of fascinates me that nothing much seems to be happening with it and then, slowly, more and more details start emerging. Apt that it’s called ‘Getting Ready’ in your current family situation 😉

    • funny that you’ve never been tempted to try cross stitch, Lynn, because a small project can be very relaxing and portable.

  2. stunning effort, you have done well, and yes I must admit back stitch can be boring part – although it makes the world of difference in the end, I love the definition that takes place.

    • thank you Kate. I feel like I’m making progress and certainly put in a fair few hours this time . . . but when I stand back to look, it doesn’t seem much for the hours it took.

  3. I’m with you Claire! I would rather keep threading that needle with new colors and move with the momentum you have at that time! Looking great 😀

  4. I’m in the same place as you with my projects. A little bit of this, some of that, and that… But you have this project almost in the bag!!

  5. You have so many craft projects on the go that I’m impressed with your progress on this one. I do feel sorry for that poor faceless waiter though LOL

  6. I love the way the little details fill in. I used to like to save some small detail in a project — the “light” in someone’s eye, for example, which always feels like breathing life into the work. So let that waiter remain faceless while you keep on stitching!
