Stitching Saturday: Current Progress on All WIPs #6

Let me start this week off with the one I did the most work on:

Peppermint Purple SAL

Last week, it looked like this:

This week, it looks like this:

Look at how pretty it is!! I’m so glad I chose Layout2 with thus border! It’s a lot of work, but it’s way worth it! I did 1100 stitches this week bringing my overall total to 7319.! The count will be lower for a bit since I will only be filling in the squares and outlining new ones until the row of squares going around the inner border are done. Then, I’ll be working on the outside border as well as filling in/outlining squares.

Next up is my 1 yr old project, I think it’s a year old now anyway:

The Land Baby

Thus top part is pretty uniform looking in spite of all the color changes so it’s a bit hard to see what progress has been made, Here is last week:

Once again, I didn’t have a lot of time to work on it, but I did what I could. Now that the SAL will be taking less tine, I’ll have more for this one.

Here it is this week:

It’s only 300 stitches, but it does bring me one square closer to being done. The next grouping will bring me to the right edge of the piece and then, I can move down to the next section. We’ll finally be able to see the baby. šŸ™‚

My grand total for this piece – for the right side – is not 3000 stitches.

I decided since I had more time, and I was only going to be doing about 150 stitches a day on Land Baby this coming week, I’d bring back another project into the lineup.


I had just enough time before the end of the week to get all the lettering done and move back to the triangle where I’ll begin work in the new week.

Here is where I was last time I showed it to you:

This is where I am now:

I’m sorry the piece in the picture isn’t flatter. I keep forgetting to take it off the hoop before putting it up for the night so it won’t leave marks. I need the hoop because I’m using blended thread, and it helps keep my tension better.

I did only 116 stitches this week, and my grand total is only 407 stitches. I plan to have a great deal more by the end of this coming week.

I don’t have plans to restart Girl With the Pearl Earring this month at all. I may wait until Stitchinati is nearly done before I start it again so I have time.


Once Stitchinati and Girl are both done, I have plans to begin two more projects that are full coverage. One is a SAL happening on Facebook and is of the One Ring. My son and I are big fans of the movie, and I’ll be stitching that one for him. The other is a Map of Middle Earth by Ankicoleman Designs. I’ll be stitching that for my son as well, and I plan to do another one next year for me.

That’s it for this week. I’ll see you all on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!

  1. I love your blackwork project more and more with every post! šŸ™‚ My Fox and Rabbit is blended material as well, and I can’t imagine I’d ever work on it without a hoop. (I usually just use a hoop for all of my stitching anyway.) Your stitching queue looks awesome, and I hope you’ll love the new projects as much as the current ones! I’m not on Facebook so there seem to be a few wonderful SALs I’m missing out on. šŸ™‚

  2. If you want to do The Ring pattern, I can share the pdfs with you.
    I’m loving the blackwork project too, Peppermint Purple did a wonderful job. There are around half a dozen different layouts, and I want to do all of them – eventually. šŸ™‚
    I’m looking forward to getting to the rest of my planned projects once I get the ones I’m doing done.


    1. It’s so kind of you to share the pattern for The Ring, but it’s totally fine–I don’t know when (or if) I’ll be able to get to it anyway, since my current projects will keep me occupied for quite some time. I’ll enjoy looking at your updates, though. šŸ™‚

  3. We’re on Week 13 of the SAL now, and I have nothing but respect for someone who can come up with so many different fillers! I’m having lots of fun and look forward to each week’s new square filler.
