SAL Update: Making Progress

Three weeks and here we are ~ time to show our progress

Here is where I was at our last posting


Today I am smiling with the progress I have made


Before, current work, and what it will look like when done



This counted cross stitch kit is by Barbara Lavallee, one of my favorite Alaskan artists. While most of her work centers on an Alaskan theme she does branch out to capture the whimsical side of life all around us. I found a wonderful print of hers on eBay. Titled “Fiesta Market” I made an offer and bought it. It will be a perfect fit framed and hung in our southwestern themed living room.


Barbara Lavallee’s work will always bring a smile

About the SAL

This SAL (Stitch Along) is slightly different from other SALs in that we don’t all stitch the same design at the same rate. We choose ONE unfinished project, or ONE new one, and show the progress of its completion over a series of three weekly updates. There are no deadlines and no set amount to stitch. If you would like to join in please click on Avis and contact her. The directions to join are simply.
