SAL: Christmas Greetings

A new month and our three week-check in is here again. I am working on a Joy Sunday cross stitch actually called The Skating Santa Clause. For some reason I renamed this Christmas Greetings. Either way its cute and fun. After a rough start and an all new floss change, my last posting looked like this.

I have been trying to work on this pretty faithfully as I have a few other holiday projects in the works. I don’t know about you, but once we get to September I feel the crunch to get things done before it’s to late. Here is where I am now

I am off now to visit the pages of my fellow SAL stitchers. I am always excited to see their progress and fabulous projects.


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.

    excellent progress, Sharon ^^ And yes, I’ve already begun thinking that I’ll need to make a start soon, if I plan on making anything for the festive season.

    Lots of good progress. Yes, September marks the start of so many things and the time crunch. I have a feeling this year, I will have to let the crunch pass me by.
