Just One July was my own little informal SAL where I decided to stitch on just one project for the whole month. Several stitchers decided to join me and lots of progress has been made!
I was off to a great start to my month by finishing this project which was promised to my younger son back when I started it in January 2014. Glad to have this off the WIP list...
Cut Thru Pirate Ship by Bothy Threads
Started 6 January 2014, finished 14 July 2016
The second half of the month was much less productive. I don't know whether the heat got to me or if I'm just not enjoying this project. I chose to stitch my second oldest WIP and could have had it finished too if I'd spent more time on it. Anyway, it went from here...
Family Band Sampler by Riverdrift House
This is stitched on 14 count white aida which isn't something I would choose to work on now but it's surprisingly relaxing and stitches up quickly. I'm just over halfway through it now but I could have stitched so much more!
I am planning to run my monthly SAL again for Solo September - but this time I will do a "real" SAL with sign-ups! It will be low stress, the only commitment will be to work on just one project for the whole month (or two if like me you have a finish!) and to post a before and after photo to share your progress. You can feel free to update your blog during the month to share progress if you wish but there's no obligation to do so.
I will be putting a sign-up page up later in the month, and feel free to join me if you want to make a big dent in something, or if you have a deadline to meet, or just fancy stitching One At A Time for a change!
