Mellerstain Parrots #8

Another 3 weeks, a very busy 3 weeks, another paltry progress on my SAL project!


Here's where I was:





Ready for a game of spot the difference?



How about a close up?



I finished the fourth and final tail feather and started on the wing...  hmmm. not great progress there Wendy!

it's like playing "spot the difference" ^^
important thing is that you did make some progress!

Every stitch helps.... no matter how few.

Ah Wendy, progress is still progress, and I did find your completed tail! 😀

At least you are working on the embroidery and some day it will all be finished! Good work!

I'm so glad I'm not the only one where spot the difference is the game! It is looking lovely, and it will slowly get there!
I hope you've been enjoying yourself.

Don't worry. There's no race to finish. Just stitch as much as you wish. That's the idea here :-)

You have made quite a bit of progress, though its hard to see being such a light colour. Don't give up, any progress is better than none.

Progress is progress! Every stitch counts.

Rachel said...

Never mind, you have done some, and just think how much you will enjoy it when you get to sit down for a "proper stitch"!

Any progress is better than none, and this looks very time-consuming to stitch so I'm thinking that even that small amount took a while to do :)

Magpie Sue said...

Hey, tiny progress is better than none, as others have said. Don't beat yourself up, instead celebrate the progress you were able to make in spite of the crazy three weeks it was! (Yeah, I know: do as I say, not as I do!)

I'm the queen of tiny progress posts, but it doesn't matter! Every little bit helps. It's looking lovely! :D

Slow and steady wins the race. Not that you're in a stitching race...hmmm....Looks good!
