The first SAL of the year – and a pass!

by | Jan 13, 2019 | 20 comments

Whilst I have been stitching – I’m afraid there is nothing new to show on the ‘Anne’s Orchard Clutch’ this time round!

It is our first SAL of 2019

…and I’m not off to a good start! Whilst I have been stitching, this piece just hasn’t made it into those pieces being stitched. I’m giving some serious thought to substituting my SAL piece as this seems to be a theme lately. Better luck next time!

Join the others!

I’m sure everyone else has been much more productive! Do make sure you head over and see what everyone else has been up to! There is always so much to see, and is a great and lovely time catching up with everyone. If you would like to join, please get in touch with Avis, and she will give you all the details.

We also welcome back Mary Margaret (welcome back!), and our little group is growing ever stronger, as we welcome Renee and Jenny. I look forward to seeing what lovely pieces everyone will be working on this year.

Avis, Claire, Gun, Carole, LucyAnn, Kate, Jess, Sue, Constanze, Debbierose, Christina, Kathy, Margaret, Cindy, Helen, Steph, Linda, HeidiJackie, Sunny, HayleyMegan, Deborah, Connie , Clare, Mary Margaret, Renee and Jenny.

See you in three weeks for the next SAL update. And possibly some progress on the clutch!

    Call it Christmas recovery time Catherine! I know how you feel as my little piece has not progressed very much either!

      I do like the idea of Christmas recovery time! Mine may stretch to become summer recovery time, fingers crossed for next month!

    I know how you feel. It can be hard to keep up momemtum sometimes.

      Yes, and I seem to be flitting from one project to the next without actually achieving anything of much! A more focused approach is definitely in order!

    At least you’ve done some stitching, if not on your SAL project 🙂

    Your January being summer, I can see how stitching time is minimal! Up here in SD, USA it is usually cold and dark, so stitching comes naturally. This year is as dark as ever, but the cold has been minimal, so there’s been a little less stitching, but twice as much as during the summer. Summer stitching is always way more difficult!

      Yes, I do find stitching more difficult in summer too! I’m also trying to work out how to deal with the humidity, as it makes for ‘sticky’ hands which I’m not used to! I’m sure once the routine starts at the end of January when the ‘holidays’ (ie hubby is back to work too!) are over it will be easier.

    The turn of the year has a trick of derailing plans. You’ll get back to it!

      It certainly does! I feel I’ve been a bit derailed for a few months, so fingers crossed i get back into the momentum soon enough!

    A change is as good as a rest so they say. Definitely put the clutch to one side for a while. There’s always plenty of other lovely things to work on and you’ll get your clutch mojo back another day.

      Yes, I’ll have to work out what will be the best project. I really ‘want’ it to be the clutch, I think it would’ve grow quickly with little effort!

    A combination of the holidays and your summer would mean I wouldn’t stitch at all! So you are super productive in my mind.

      You are very kind! I’m just happy I’ve got any stitching done, even if it’s not on this project!

    oh, well…you know we will still be here when you want to show us. It is good to have the new SALers on board too. I enjoyed looking at the work they are creating.

    So you can´t always produce, but as long as you are visiting us it´s ok 🙂
