Thursday SAL!! and a giveaway question

We never forget, but sometimes we get a little busy;) For those of you who are joining in for today's SAL, have fun and we can't wait to see your progress!!

I have to admit, lately I've been working on a rotation of 10 my St. Nick doesn't come up every Thursday. I stitch on one thing til I'm in the mood to move to the next one, but I keep them in the same order. I'm also thinking I may need to get busy with Christmas gifts! Not only do I need to stitch, but I try to make our Christmas cards too. Starting this early helps me enjoy all of it and not get stressed out.

I'm still thinking about what I want to offer as the July giveaway. I would love to get your feedback about things you'd like a chance to win:) Now don't get crazy, I can't give you a car, but if you have some stitchy ideas, please leave a comment.

Thanks for keeping our blog active and your wonderful comments and cheerleading you give one another. It truly helps keep us motivated:)

Happy Canada Day to you Canadians and Happy 4th of July to those of us in the States:)
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

I am definitely in, starting to work on mine after this. However, I won't be posting for this week as I am close to finishing mine and will like to post it when she is done, if that is alright.

What? I won't be able to see St.Nick every Thursday :0( I will definitely check out your blog on your other projects :0)))

I thought one of the Giveaways was very cool and that was the DMC floss. I am actually hoping for that in the future. How about a piece of fabric for the next HAED project or a stitching magazine? I also feel that Giveaways don't have to be something new. It can be a used chart or magazine.

Thank you to Cindy, Wendy and everyone here for keeping this blog active and making me feel like I am home.

Jeez woman, not only do you stitch but you make your own cards? You are a true crafter LOL!

I like Yvonne's idea of fabric or floss. How about several packs of needles? Ten (or more) skeins of 310?

Good idea for magazines! For my part, I was really happy with the floss I won, that was a pretty (but expensive for you Cindy!) idea.
Some others ideas: gift card at HAED, cute scissors, needle magnet...
And Happy 4th of July to all Americans! Thanks Cindy for Canadia Day :P

I can't think of anything else to add to those helpful suggestions, except maybe to offer to stitch my project that is for my daughter, that just isn't inspiring me at the moment! rofl

Just kidding. . I know that this is a Mom to Daughter present. But should you offer. . no, no. ..must not be tempted! lol
