SAL: Making Progress

Progress was made these past 3 weeks. I finished the dog and moved on to the legs of the 3rd woman. Here is where I was last time


Here is where I am now



Accountability to aย group is a good thing

    Well done! I like how the dogs look like you used variegated thread, but I can see you stitched in stripes in a lighter color. They’re so cute!

      Thank you Christina ~ while working the dog I realized I was using 3 strands instead of 2 at one point, then switched. It did seem to give him a little more depth. All of Barbara Lavallee’s work is so colorful and playful!

    Love those playful pups! You are really moving along at a steady pace, Sharon. I agree, the three week accountability does wonders for my progress too!

    I like the way you’ve got the photos side by side. It’s like “spot the difference”. Well done on all the progress this time ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thank you Nanette~ I wanted to tell you, I ordered the flying geese ruler – hand stitching is slow going to begin with but this is going to make it just a bit easier ~ for sure!
