June Just Nan SAL Check in

Woo hoo! I actually made some progress this month!

OK, it's not much, but at least it's something. (And, OH MY GOSH, could I possibly have taken a worse, wonkier picture??) The band with the strawberries and the grasshoppers seemed to take FOREVER. It had so many fiddly color changes, and this fabric's weave is so open, I could not really carry the thread across. I actually resorted to taking some tacking stitches on the front that would end up underneath another color, to alter the path of the thread so it wouldn't show from the front!

The good news is, we're halfway through the year, and I'm about halfway through the piece. The bad news is, I was about a third of the way through at the beginning of the year!!! I need to get on the stick, as they say. And by "the stick," I mean, the sticking of the needle into and out of the fabric!!
