I need to make some decisions about the rest of 2012 stitching. I still have 8 more projects to finish for the 2012 Crazy January Challenge-see my sidebar--->
And guess what came in the mail last week when I was at the retreat? See below-
Three gorgeous kits from Merry Cox that need pre-stitching for the November classes. A lot of over one stitching in these babies!
And I have the rest of the Helix Etui from Betsy Morgan stretched, tacked and ready to start stitching-really anxious to get going on this one!
Are you familiar with Theresa Baird over at Heart's Ease Examplar Workes? I just discovered her and ordered her beautiful Regal Bee design. She is a delight and her work is so beautiful! And I even got a Quaker box off of ebay specifically for this finish-I really want to start this one!
And what is going on with SAL's this year? They are popping up everywhere!! Here is the latest one that I couldn't say no to--SAL Sopresa 2 from Les Trois Brodeuses. It is a little difficult to read as most of the postings are in Italian and French. There is a small cost (I think 10 euros). And Sara accepts Paypal. My first email came within 1 or 2 hours from my payment and it did have English in it. There are some photos of the finished Part 1 on Sara's blog. Good news-no showing of finished stitching before getting the next part :)
And what about the 2012 SAL on Les Grilles de Maryse? This one is adorable! I just sent off an email today to see if I can still join. Don't know yet if it is closed. I think this one has a small fee too.
Whew! Too many great projects to choose from!! Did I forget to mention the 6 smalls that I started on retreat? And Holiday Patches? And Betsy's Morgans other set of smalls? And...... well, you get the idea.
