SAL: Christmas Greetings

Christmas Greetings is moving right along. I have worked on her pretty consistently in the last 3 weeks. Perry Mason reruns keeps me on tract with an hour of stitching each morning. Here is where I was at our last posting.

Santa has his skates on for a spin around the pond and his beard is filling in nicely too.

Keeping with the Santa theme I alternated skating Santa with another cross stitch Santa Christmas card this reporting period.

It’s always a highlight of the 3 week posting to check in with the others in this SAL. You can join me by clicking on the links below ๐Ÿ™‚

About the SAL

Please note this SAL is not accepting any more new members until further notice but this is what itโ€™s all about anyway. This SAL (Stitch Along) is slightly different to other SALs in that we donโ€™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. Itโ€™s surprising how much motivation Iโ€™ve gained from being in this SAL.

    There’s a lot of stitching in each card. I’m sure the recipients will treasure them forever and put them on show every year ๐Ÿ™‚

      I had to laugh – there was quite a lot of little stitching in this card. It required the perfect lighting to get through it ๐Ÿ™‚
