Thursday SAL/ Astrid

All right ladies, pull out those HAEDs and fire up your needles! It's time for the Thursday SAL!!!! Hopefully some of you abroad are stitching already. Count me in, in a few hours.

Will anyone else be joining Astrid and myself in stitching The Astronomer?

Astrid, I'm ready to go! Chart is copied, some floss is purchased, bagged, and labeled, and the material is here and cut to size. I'm starting him for the SAL today. Guess what, it starts with #310!

Looking forward to progress pics from all of you this week!!!!!

MarchAnn,
Hopefully it will be time for Cindy F. and Wendy to do the 3 month blog cleaning soon and your name will come up to join! Goodness knows you follow us and comment all the time! Do you have a blog where we can follow your HAED progress for now?

Thanks Sabine for this lovely post!! I'm in for today's SAL too, I need some encouragement too, because it's like I'm little bored in my stitching for the moment. I have been so busy lately, that I don't feel to do a lot of stitching lately.

I can't start Astronomer yet. I don't have my fabric yet. Boohoo.

Sabine S. said...

OK Wendy,
Glad you are in for today because as one of our fearless leaders we look forward to your progress!! Even if you only put in 100 confetti stitches, I'm cheering you on! You'll feel better once you pick up your needle...promise.

Jan,
Oh great, you're joining us!!!! As you may know, I'm the world's slowest stitcher so I get an unofficial headstart anyway! Jump in as soon as you get your fabby!

I'm in for tonight! I am not sure what I will be stitching yet though. If my fabric for Wrath comes in the mail today, then I will be making a run to Michael's to get the threads and then I will start that one..if not then I will work on Chessie!
