Another Goblin Update

Got a good amount done over the weekend. This is almost 50% of page 5 completed. That is my Feb. goal. I should be able to reach it. More stitching for me tonight! I want to get more of the wing done. I am mesmerized by it!

Page 9 is Complete!

I managed to get the page done. So pages 9 & 10 are complete! I wanted to work on the page above page 9 (page 5), so I can get to see some of that fabulous wing. So I went up the page to mark where the heck I am. Now I can go across the page just about anywhere I want....

I was without power for 2 days due to a huge ice storm. But I could stitch in front of the window during the daylight hours. Not much else to do with no electricity! Kept the fireplace stoked and did okay.

Look what I put together from my sale purchases! This is all 4 of Annie Rodrigue's cats. I am planning to stitch them all on one piece of fabric. I call them 'Seasonal Cats'. It will end up being 350W X 504H. Using 25 ct fabric the total stitched area will be 14" wide X 21" tall.

SAL Challenge 2007 (HAED)

Goblin Tree is also my focus piece for the HAED 2007 SAL (Stitch A Long) Challenge.
  • This challenge is for a 1 year SAL on a chart of your choice.

  • The chart can not change during the year unless you finish one and start another.

  • You can stitch on your chart any time you want, but at least 10 out of 12 months you need to sign in and participate in the SAL weekend which will be on the second weekend of each month running from friday morning to Monday night.

  • It is preferred that you post before and after pictures, but as some people do not have access to cameras/scanners etc a before and after stitch count is fine as well.

  • There are be two groups: the ones who have a chart already started, and the ones starting a new chart for January 2007.

  • The first SAL weekend was the 12th to the 15th of January.

  • The last month a person can join is the March SAL as after that the 10 months cannot be achieved.

This is my before picture of Goblin Tree:
