Saturday Stitches

I’ve decided to change Saturday’s subject matter to all things related to stitching: cross stitching, sewing, embroidery etc. This doesn’t include crochet or knitting since that’s for Friday.

My first project is the Halloween SAL: A Storybook Halloween 2021 hosted by Stitchonomy. I am doing this project with Anita from My (mis?)adventures with yarn, and I’m hoping we can both keep up because they will be releasing patterns every day from 10 Sept to 11 Oct. I have done the first block, which you’ll see here, but I have yet to get the pattern for today so you’ll have to wait until next Saturday to see it along with everything I stitch this week. I am waiting for more floss because I don’t have all the colors on the list, but I am going to do what I can.

This part of the frame and the first block. The blocks are all related to stories so this first one references Poe’s The Black Cat.

The eyes and the tails didn’t come out quite the way I wanted them to but overall, the cats came out well. I am still not sure about the spine and pages of the frame which is a book so if anyone has any suggestions I’d like to read them. I am not changing the lettering or the gold on the pages, but if you think it needs more, let me know please.

This is the first SAL(Stitch-A-Long) of this kind I’ve ever done so I’m excited to do this. I am making this first one for myself so the small mistakes aren’t going to bother me.

Thanks for stopping in, and I’ll see you on the flipside so don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!

  1. Your cats are so cute! ❤️ I’m not even halfway done with the frame – I wanted to check out this SAL before deciding to join the Pattern Club for future SALs. So guess I’ll start the individual sections in a few days.
