News on our Welcome SAL

Dear stitching friends,

This post is about the Welcome SAL, another of my Stitch-Alongs on Facebook.   The FINAL part of that, my very first SAL, will be released in less than 2 weeks. Then on May 7th, I will close the Welcome SAL Facebook Group forever.  

 If you have friends who might still be interested in the Welcome SAL, you may want to tell them the END is approaching.  There is still a little time to join and get the parts.  Once the Welcome Facebook group closes, the individual parts of that particular SAL will no longer be available as downloads.  Many thanks to you all!  We have had so much fun stitching together and showing off our work on the Welcome SAL.  There is more to come, however.  
Also, for European and UK stitchers, you  can order floss packs at Lakeside Needlecrafts online shop.

Watch for news about a new SAL in July!

A Stitch Or Two A Day

Sometimes we just want a little something to pick up and create a little color.  I always have several needles threading and attached by magnets to the arm of my magnifier lamp.  It sure makes it easy to grab that basket of projects, pull down the lamp, turn it on and begin to stitch. 

Here are three of my SALS, still been ongoing. These are called Stitch-Alongs, SALs.  One - Welcome -began in September, Freedom began a few weeks later, and Long Way Home will start in March. 

 Each is 16 parts, usually released ever 2 weeks on a Thursday evening or Friday morning.  We have a special Facebook group for each SAL but those those who are not on Facebook, we will email the parts individually.
Now don't tell anyone, but this little ship is still a secret to the SAL members!!  I am sure you can tell which SAL it belongs to.  The Freedom SAL is full of many little things and really, you can stitch the motifs individually for the most adorable little gift you can imagine.
When began to  I began to design this one, I had in mind how it must feel to fly over the tree tops in the forest.  When I was a child, I often dreamed of flying.   I am sure trees would look like these Vierlanden motifs, if I could soar overhead. And since I love itsy, bitsy houses, there must be some of those.

Now be assured there is still time to join any of these and and any already-released parts are waiting for you. You can just contact me if you are not on Facebook but
 you can also go to Etsy and find the links to each SAL where you can read all about them and easily sign up!  Each is only $5, such a small price for so much fun!!
