WIP Wednesday – What I’ve Been Stitching

Hello, Stitchy Friends. It is time for another Work-In-Progress Wednesday. I may not have been posting much lately but I have been doing my best to keep up with my stitching.

Joyful World SAL, designed by Maja Matyas of Snowflower Diaries (WIP)


I’ve made a bit of progress on the October square for the Joyful World SAL. I adore this piece, but the fabric is so big and hard to work on. Still, it will get done, just a little behind schedule.

Speaking of schedules, I’m doing pretty good with Victoria Sampler’s O Canada! Sampler. I want to be able to finish it up on or before Canada. (July 1st for you non-Canadians.)

O Canada! Sampler by Victoria Sampler (WIP)

There is some pulled work beneath the letters in the upper section, but it is hard to see since it is essentially tone-on-tone. I’ve got a bunch more to do at the bottom, and I also still need to chart out the 150 for the upper section. Thank goodness I still have a few months until my self-imposed deadline.

Canadian Beauty, designed by Joan Elliott (WIP)

Joan Elliott’s Canadian Beauty is also coming along nicely. I was in a rush to finish her head because I was afraid I cut her fabric too small. But, nope, it is just right. Thank goodness! The fabric is a beautiful piece of Meadow from Enchanting Lair.

I’ve been doing a lot more crochet and knitting than stitching lately, though, and tomorrow I’d like to share something special and very interesting with you.

Smalls SAL – Don’t forget, the next check-in for the Smalls SAL takes place on Friday, March 31st. I can’t wait to see what you have stitched. 😉

    O Canada is really lovely, even as a Brit I can see it’s appeal. Joyful world is coming along very well. I don’t think I’ve seen anyone doing as one very large piece! Great work all round Heather.

  4. The Canadian Beauty is living up to her name..

    Great work. Love the Joyful World as one large piece. Nice work on the sampler and such a relief that Joan’s head fitted too!
