Look: another finish!
The pattern is Lavender Wings’ Trimming the Tree. The fibres are DMC, and the fabric is Meadow from Enchanting Lair.
I almost got enough done this year to make me feel like I should take part in every Stitch Along I’ve come across. You know, I’m not sure if participating in SALs helps me get more done, but I sure do have more fun!
In 2013 I plan to take part in three Stitch Alongs. The first is my own Ornament SAL, where we stitch an ornament for any holiday once a month. Finish finishing them is optional.
SAL number 2 is DaffyCat’s Totally Useless SAL. It is as easy as can be to take part: save your little bits of thread in a container and post a picture of it every new moon. Simple!
SAL number 3 is Measi’s WIPocalypse. The whole point of which is to work on all those works-in-progess (WIP) that each of us has stashed away somewhere. I did fairly well with it last year, and I’m looking forward to getting much more done in 2013.
There are several other SALs out there in blog-land. There is the International Hermit and Stitch Weekends, which is great for those of you who are able to take time on the weekend to just stitch and ignore the heck out of your family. I’m envious, believe me, but an almost-5-year old doesn’t understand mommy’s need to just stitch and not feed him, so I will be passing on that one again this year. And there is also Geeky Heather’s Theme-a-licious. Every month stitch along to the themes Heather has laid out. This year she is also offering ornament themes, which would complement my ornament SAL quite nicely. And who could forget the ever popular Crazy January? Spend the first 15 (or every) days in January starting new projects, and then finish them up during the year.
What SALs will you be taking part in?
