February SAL Update

It's that time again. Time to show you how much or how little I managed to stitch on Three Boats. 

This is where I was at the last update in January.

I have finished the tree trunk and most of the other tree trunk that goes out to the right side. I have also finished the sand above that trunk. 

I was hoping that by this update you would be able to see the beginning of one of the boats. If you look very closely, you can see the beginning rusty/coral outline of a boat near the bottom of what I have stitched. There hopefully be more of the boat in the next update.

Thanks so much to Avis at Sewing Beside the Sea for hosting this Stitch Along every three weeks.

    1. Thank you. I am inspired to stitch on this just so I have a decent update every three weeks. It looks pretty because there is way too much confetti stitching in it.

  16. I'm so impressed with all the confetti stitching on your project! It's what feels overwhelming when I contemplate that large "Wave" project for myself. But slow and steady, right?

    1. Slow and steady is the only way to approach this type of project.
