A Great SAL for Christmas!!!!

Gentle Friends I wanted to thank you all for your kind comments - as usual they are warm hugs on a cold and damp morning!!  I also wanted to welcome my new Followers and hope you find something interesting here on my little Blog - as always the more the merrier!!

Not too much going on here - it seems that every evening I find myself drifting off in my stitching chair and not getting much done in the way of stitching - although the little bits I am getting done are on ATS, I don't feel enough is stitched to warrant a snaperoo - if you can believe that!!  :)  So I'll post a snap next week after some progress is made this weekend.

I did want to mention on today post a wonderful Christmas SAL I bumped into surfing the Blogs yesterday.  Created by a very talented stitcher named Erynne over at Stitcheree! - it is called Merry and Bright and has totally sucked me in wanting to make a start!  


Last night I even dug through the pile of frames I have and found a super silver leaf one that would fit this perfectly!!  So now, even though I have a pile of Holiday stitching I want to start and ATS  I am wanting to finish up by the end of the year.... I am thinking I will pull together the floss and linen and make a lovely start of this super piece!!

That's about it for today sports fans, thanks for stopping by have a great weekend!!!

Take care,
edgar

Looks like a great SAL project! I have seen several postings lately regarding SALs that are being organized. I may need to think about joining one or starting one of my own : ) Have a great weekend!

Ellen said...

Great, I just found this SAL too! I am also trying to stitch this before X'mas ha ha!

Hugs,

Margaret said...

Oh that does look great!! Too bad I'm model stitching through the end of the year. Have to go look at this anyway...

That is a really cute Christmas SAL. I am also working on ATS, so I look forward to your progress. Hopefully it will spur me on, I have put it aside for other projects lately.

I've seen the SAL and love it! Too bad I'm lacking time to devote myself to making it. I can't wait to see you start it!! I hope your mojo comes back Edgar...it gets lost every once in awhile with me too.

What a cute SAL! This is the 2nd cute cross stitch item I've found on your blog this week. The other being Nouveau Encore Designs. Cute trees. You are just a wealth of information for me. Many thanks.

Edgar, you are too kind! Thank you so much and I hope you enjoy stitching the pattern! :o) :o)

I've had my eye on this SAL for ages now. Shall I - shan't I? I have so much on the go and I really can't decide!

This is so cute! I have pinned some charts by the same desiigner on my Pinterest boards and just added this one. Thanks so much for sharing!

That is such a neat SAL. Your flying needles can do it up for sure! By the way, your houses piece is adorable - perfect conversions!

Edgar,
That looks like a fun SAL. Thank you for posting about it. I am a new follower to your blog. You have beautiful finishes. You keep us stitcher's inspired. I added you to my blog list so I can keep up. Have a wonderful weekend!

Such a cute sew-along. The Christmas Garden has all my attention for now.

Sherry :o) said...

Had a bit of catching up to do with blogs...been a week or two since I read...and I have been thinking of you - SF is here in DEtroit (near where I live) and I have been a huge TIGER fan my whole life...

Your finishing on the Halloween exchange is fabulous - love the matching purple paint. Have been on the lookout for the candy corn oreos - checking Target stores all over - and for the month or so I have been looking, haven't found them - bummer!!

I agree "Marigold Hotel" was a good flick - saw it with my Mom at the theater...Belated Happy Birthday too!

ATS looking great - can't wait to see "Baby It's Cold Outside"!

Happy Halloween...
Sherry :0)
