Solo September is halfway through!

Solo September is my own SAL where we stitch on just one project for a whole month.  This month I'm joined by 19 other stitchers who are all making good progress on their chosen project (I hope!)  Please see this post for more details and links to the blogs of those who are joining in.

My chosen project for Solo September was a new start on September 1st.  This is what it will look like when finished...

Sheltered by Dimensions

And here is my progress halfway through the month...


I am stitching the big tiger's leg, to the right of the baby tiger in the model picture.  You may be able to tell that I've finished the leg and am now stitching the foot.

I knew September would be a busy month but I was hoping for a bit more progress.  The good news is though that I love stitching this one.  It's really relaxing and as I prefer to stitch cross-country, I am stitching colour by colour and watching the shading come together is very satisfying!

A big cheer to everyone else who is solo stitching this month - good luck and hope you are making better progress than me!

Until next time

Justine

Such a lovely design and it's fun to see the shape of the cub's head in the mother's leg.

Amazing progress!!
I love the fact we can see the cub's shape already.
This is a really sweet design and you have made a very impressive start.

You've done a great progress on it already :) and it's stunning. I too love to see the picture taking shape with each nee colour done, it's amazing when a "blob" of threads starts looking like what you are stitching :D

Mini said...

Good progress on the cub. This is such a beautiful project.

Jenn M said...

I will be interested to see your progress on this. It's not something I think I would ever stitch, with all those similar colours, but it still intrigues me. Do you use a hoop/frame/q-snap? Do you find it hard to start again after a break? Those colours are all very soothing though, and that baby tiger is just the sweetest. Good luck!
Happy Days,
Jenn

Isn't it wonderful when you start a new project and you really enjoy stitching it. It looks great!

Desiree Ehleiter said...

I think you are making amazing progress! It looks wonderful. Looking forward to seeing it continue to develop.

I enjoy stitching by color too. It's fun to watch the piece grow like that. :D Are you going to finish the paw before starting on the cub? Or all the legs and save the cub for last?!

Sarah in Stitches said...

Lovely progress! :D

Julie said...

Looking wonderful.

Anthea said...

What a beautiful design Justine, and your progress is wonderful.
I've been sick for most of the month so far, so I would not have made for a very good candidate for Solo September!!

Katie said...

Beautiful progress! I hope everyone is doing well with the SAL.

gominam said...

Lovely progress! I stitch by color too,I admire you for stitching all that white so fast, truly you're enjoying this gorgeous design:)

Brigitte said...

Oh Justine, I think you are making big progress on this project.
I am also a cross country stitcher and first stitch all the crosses with one colour at a certain place before I go on and pull the next colour. The parking method wasn't made for me, lol.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Any progress is good progress! I also prefer to cross country. I start with the darkest colours and work to the lightest. You really see the design grow that way.

Faith... said...

It looks great Justine! I used to be a cross country stitcher but now I feel more comfortable stitching one area at a time.

I have been sick and out of it for about 10 days but hope I can catch up now that I am home!!

The Crafty Princess said...

This is such a wonderful blog hop giving us the chance to get to know Jo and her followers so much better. So many different styles of music in the eighties but I have always been a heavy rock music lover.
That dragon bookmark is so perfect for Jo's birthday post.
