SAL: Wild Flower Update

Since our last posting on April 11th, there has been so many changes in my garden, the gardens of friends and in the neighborhood. Always a welcomed surprise to see everything springing to life. In my last posting I was here with my Wild Flower project

And as spring continues to blossom and gardens are filling in with color, so is my project. I have begun to work the flowers in the jar.

Now I am off to check in with the other participants in this SAL and see the whats happening with their projects. You can join me by clicking on the links below.

About the SAL

Please note this SAL is not accepting any more new members until further notice but this is what it’s all about anyway. This SAL (Stitch Along) is slightly different to 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 progress of its completion over a series of three weekly updates. There are no deadlines and no set amount to stitch. The result is that the space in our drawers full of WIPs (works in progress) is gradually being freed up to store lots of new crafty goodness. It’s surprising how much motivation I’ve gained from being in this SAL.

      Thank you Claire. Funny, I had taken a 3rd photo of this posts progress and its color was way off. I ditched that photo 🙂

    Great to see all the colourful bits starting to appear. I can never get the colours right on my photos. That’s one thing I don’t bother trying too hard at any more 🙂

    Lovely progress, Sharon! I love taking cut flowers from my garden and putting them in mason jars.

    I was going to ask which photo was closer to the actual color but you told me. This is beautiful. I look forward to seeing all the different flowers.

    Lovely progress, it’s such a pretty design. It’s surprising how light and colour changes in photographs.
