There was not as much vacation stitching as I hoped for, mainly because only one of the hotels I stayed at provided the right workspace and lighting conditions to work on this. But there has been progress, even if just a bit. Last time:

In-progress shot of a cross-stitch pattern, showing a couple of pink flowers on the lower left on top of a yellow-orange background. In the unfinished part to the right a hexagonal honeycomb form is appearing.

Now, the first hexagon is pretty much finished (the missing bits belong to another blue flower), and the next one below is starting to take shape:

In progress-shot of a counted cross-stitch project with a yellow-orange-red background. On the left, some big pink and small blue flowers, on the upper right, a hexagon from a honeycomb.

Seems like I need to find a TV show or two to watch in order to make more progress – the owl is getting rather more love at the moment.

Here are the other members of the SAL who are posting today. Make sure to check out their work, it’s amazing: Avis, Claire, Gun, Christina, Kathy, Margaret, Cindy, Heidi, Jackie, Sunny, Megan, Deborah, Renee, Carmela, Sharon, Daisy, Anne, AJ, Cathie, Linda and Helen.

  1. A little stitching is better than none at all. That looks like the start of some honeycomb.

  2. I bet this made a change from stitching the owl project, with such bright colours ^^

  3. I can’t watch TV and stitch at the same time. I wish I could.

  4. Good progress and I love the brightness of this project. I have really found setting a time and tv program has helped me make good progress 🙂

  5. I’m also a TV stitcher, problem is I tend to blast through TV shows in a matter of weeks. sometimes I have fun re-watching the same Tvshows for the second or third time, I find it more entertaining that watching a new one to then find myself not enjoying it 😀 – This is a beautiful piece and I’m loving the progress oyu’re making !

  6. This is still moving forward and that’s what counts!

  7. I have found that no matter where in the world you stay, hotels rarely have good enough light to stitch in the evening, It is very frustrating as I do most of my stitching at that time. good progress once again xx

  8. I think you´ve done a lot! Looking great!
