The Return of ‘Anne’s Orchard’ clutch
Things have been a bit quite around here lately, with more changes for me to get used to! But, in this three weekly catch up with the other ‘SAL’ participants, I’ll show you what I’ll be working on now the elephant is finished. The much forgotten ‘Anne’s Orchard’ clutch!
The Return of ‘Anne’s Orchard’ Clutch
Since we last caught up, I’ve started a new job, and the change in routine has had me lacking in time to do much other than the bare necessities! It’s also the first time in several years that I’m working full time again. So the poor body and mind is taking a bit longer to get back into gear with all the fun stitching things I’ve got planned!
After completing the elephant stitch sampler, it was time to consider ‘what next’ to stitch as part of this stitch-a-long. I enjoy this stitch-a-long, as it is helping to get the pile of unfinished projects down. The support for the group is incredible! I did consider starting another new project, but given the overflowing basket of as yet unfinished projects, I thought the better of it.
The project I’ve chosen is another project that has been hanging around a while. It has been on nearly every holiday I’ve had in the past two years, although not many stitches were added over the years! So perhaps it’s now time to finish it!
It’s quite a nice project – a project where you can do as much or as little as you like. From looking at what I’ve done already, I was definitely taking the approach of doing a lot. I’m also surprisingly happy with what I’ve done already.
So whilst I haven’t done anything other than contemplate the project this time round, I’m hopeful that next time we check in with each other, some progress will have been made.
So here’s the ‘starting’ point of ‘Anne’s Orchard’ clutch!
Join the others!
I’m sure the others have made some real progress, so 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.
See you in three weeks for the next SAL update, and hopefully some progress on the clutch!
