2015 SALs

I have two SAL that I have joined for 2015.  Both are giant projects and I am looking forward to seeing the progress.  The first project is by Heartstring Samplery called His Eye is on the Sparrow.  I chose 36ct Lakeside Linen Navy Bean with called for WDW and GAST threads.
I only stitched on this one New Years Day.  I will continue to work on it once I finish Shores of HRH.  It has motivated me to get it done since I want to get back to it. 
The next project is offered from By the Bay Needlearts and will be delivered in 12 parts.  It is called Serenity Harbor and I am stitching it on Pearled Barley 36ct by Lakeside linens with called for DMC fibers.  I finished Part 1 and the next part will come Feb 3rd.
Are you working on any SAL?  If so, what?  Back to my stitching nest.
Happy Stitching!

Happy 2015!

Hard to believe a New Year has started.  The last few months have been hectic but I made it through.  Holidays were lovely but I am ready to start anew.  No resolutions for me because I don't usually follow through but I do plan to do more of what makes me happy.  Time with family, friends, fur babies, and of course stitching.  I have two finishes two share.
This is a Just Nan design called Sherry's Scissor Pocket designed exclusively for Country Crafts.

The next is Bittersweet September by Blackbird designs.  It was a club kit from the Ladies Prim available at Dyeing to Stitch.
I am hoping to get some stitching time in this winter.  Usually the cold and snow drives me inside but so far we have had mild weather so I tend to spend more time outside.  I haven't updated all of you in a while and wanted to share a picture of Maggie and Daisy.  Maggie will be one this week and she still behaves like a puppy.  Chew, chew, chase, chew, snatch, chew.  You get the picture right.
You can see that she isn't quite finished growing usually top off at about 18 months but I do believe she will remain on the smaller side due to her earlier growth problems.  As you can see, bright sunny day, mild and perfect for a walk.
Thanks for visiting.  I will be back soon with SAL 2015 updates and I feel a finish coming soon...stay tuned.
Happy Stitching,
