What's Up?



Current photo of my creativity corner ... not any stitching going on!

Yesterday, I cleared off the desk so I could work on my 'shopping list' for House of Stitches New Year sale. I have a ride tomorrow morning (while Tori & Alex sleep late) & look forward to seeing my stitching pals & the sale items. Oh, and if any of you are going to shop -- you better beat us there, when we leave, there will be nothing left!! ha ha ... just kidding.

I'm looking forward to a couple SALs in 2007, too. I've joined the Christmas Ornament SAL, hosted by Nicki to make one ornament per month.

I'll be getting out my Sampler Game Board WIP by Drawn Thread, too. I'm not sure how many stitchers will be SALing. Is that a word, SALing?? Stitching-a-long. Check out the new Game Board Sampler blog, hosted by Cathy B!

I keep looking at the photograph of the completed project. I would like to get mine done, too. The Game Board SAL will be starting up next week - to stitch TWO squares per week. I've been stitching one house at a time - I think I'll be doing a house and one of the motif squares per week.

Have a Happy New Year. I'll be cooking while the boys watch football on t.v. Tori returns to college on the 1st of January (which makes me sad already).

The game board will be very striking when it is finished, but looks like a lot of detail work so one house and motif a week unless you have extra time sounds like a good plan. I'll enjoy watching your progress.

So glad you'll be working on your game board. It might inspire me to start on mine!

Have fun at the sale! Mom & Me is having their big sale on Saturday. I'll be there in my pj's - crazy, but you can get an extra 5% discount if you wear 'em. Tee hee! I'd love to start my DT gameboard, but I have way too many stitching irons in the fire. (I've joined the monthly ornament SAL, too!) My sis has the gameboard stitched and hanging in her living room. It is fantastic! One house and one motif per week sounds pretty do-able. Happy New Year!

I just spent the past two days (on and off) trying to clean up and organize my stitching stash. Looking forward to starting on the Game Board again.

Is that design to the right of Santa from JBD designs?

Carol said...

Yep, I think SALing is now an official word :-)
