Question for this month is: What SAL's are you participating in this year?
I'm so glad you asked!
I have two: The Fire and Ember SAL from Unconventional X Stitch and on August 15th I will start Carla and Leo's Halloween Stitch Along.
The Fire and Ember SAL is a DRAGON so naturally it had to be done! I started this in July 2016 and we are supposed to do one page per month. I finished August and then the rest of 2016 happened and this is as far as this went until recently. While working on the September page, I finished all of one color only to find out that at the top of the page I made a mistake that was just enough to have to rip out all of that stitching up to a point.
As you can see, this is quite a bit of removal of perfectly beautiful stitching and where the needle is pointing is where I will be stopping and starting again...yes...so much still to remove...thank goodness I caught it in time (*sarcasm*).
The second SAL is Carla and Leo's Halloween Stitch Along. For those of you who read my blog or are a Stitching Pirate on dA, you already know that for the past couple years, Leonore (aka Fusainne) and I have put on a Halloween SAL. Leo picks the pattern and off we go! This year we are doing it again and even created a Facebook page for everyone to join us.
The patterns that Leonore has chosen this year are from Satsuma Street! The pictures I'm showing here are courtesy of the Satsuma Street Etsy Shop and are the patterns for this year's SAL. You can pick one or two or all three to stitch...it's up to you! The owner, Jody Rice, is also a member of the group so I'm sure if you have questions for her you can post them on the Halloween SAL group page or just get on over to the Satsuma Street FB group page and shout out there.
We don't start stitching until August 15th so you have plenty of time to pick your pattern, get your fabric selected and figure out flosses! Also, it is not too late to join the Fire and Ember SAL, we are only six pages in and still have plenty to go!
That's my WIPocalypse for this month!
Until next time.....KEEP ON STITCHIN'!
