At my last posting for this SAL I had shared my finish of ‘Happy Camper’, framed it and planned to give it as a gift to our friends who bought a similar looking vintage trailer. Well, that has not happened yet. In these past 3 weeks my husband became ill and wound up hospitalized and I came down with covid. These last 3 weeks to say the least has been nothing short of exhausting for us both. He is home and I am 5 days negative and were both thankful this bump in the road is over. I am looking forward to getting together with our friends soon.
As I began to think about a new project through my covid haze I decided on Christmas themed and found (2 ) on eBay of vintage Current Critters set of 4 Christmas Cross-stitch cards. I have done this type of Christmas card before (more modern) and they make the perfect gift within a card when you just need that little extra holiday cheer for someone. The first set that came in was this (below) copyright 1982 – 1987. I am starting with the raccoon – isn’t he adorable with that sweet bird on the candy cane? I have not started yet but prepped the floss and anxious to get started.
This is the 2nd set that arrived, copyright 1982. I usually like to go with a more traditional and religious theme with holiday cards but I think these are all going to be sweet and fun and we all need a bit of whimsy!
Now I am off and excited to visit the pages of the others in this SAL.

About the SAL
Please note this SAL is not accepting any more new members until further notice but this is what it’s all about anyway. This SAL (Stitch Along) is slightly different to other SALs in that we don’t all stitch the same design at the same rate. We choose ONE unfinished project, or ONE new one, and show progress of its completion over a series of three weekly updates. There are no deadlines and no set amount to stitch. The result is that the space in our drawers full of WIPs (works in progress) is gradually being freed up to store lots of new crafty goodness. It’s surprising how much motivation I’ve gained from being in this SAL.
