SAL “Getting Ready” #8

Our international and very talented group of SAL members, have been busy these past 3 weeks, in order to have some more progress to post for our regular updates.  I have been busy too.  And am pleased to show you that things have moved from this

      • My sister in Lot-et-Garonne says it’s actually about 13°C there, but my brother in the UK is snowed in. And there are floods here, in north Queensland. The weather is bonkers.

      • yep, we had day-time temps of -15°C on Wednesday of last week, then -1°C on Thursday and a snow fall, then it “shot up” to +10°C and we’ve had rain that melted all the snow. So a 25°C increase in just a matter of days . . . if it carries on like that, we’ll be sweltering next week lol.

    • well we agreed to stitch the same design since we both bought the kit in the Sales in January last year. Avis then decided to start stitching in the middle and worked down while I started in top left and have also been working down. Avis is stitching faster than me though ^^

  1. It’s so fun to see your progress in comparison to what Avis has done. Looks like you got a lot done this time around too!

  2. It’s very humorous to watch this progress because in a previous version I thought it was actually a very obese man! What is this SAL, anyway? A lot of bloggers I follow participate, but I can’t find an “origin” link.

    • Ha! “what is this SAL anyway?” you’re curious lol. It’s actually a SAL which have been running for several years! Avis and I started, simply stitching along together and posting progress, then a couple of people joined in, then a few more, and it sort of snow-balled from there. We basically all use this SAL (with its 3 weekly updates) as an opportunity to motivate us to either pick up an old UFO or to work on a WIP. Most members are cross stitching, but it can actually be any needlecraft. Avis and myself tend to work on the same project (although not always) but if you click on links, you’ll see there’s a wonderful variety of projects on the go. I suggest you click on Avis’ link where she explains things. And if you want to join in, just contact her by email or by leaving her a comm, since she is our coordinator.

      • Thanks! The source was obscure, so if I decide I want to participate, I CAN! Also, it’s a good way to try to get the UfO’s turned into FOs.

      • Oh Dear God, if there are “rules” and not just plain old regular rules, you’re in for it if I participate. LOL. I follow rules, but when you throw some good-old-fashioned “rules” at me, it gets really hilarious.

      • rules are simple lol. Post every 3rd Sunday and link to the other members. Do you think you could manage that?

      • I shall! Thanks for the information. After my next class I’ll be done for the day and I can get down with the blog, the stitching, and emailing Avis!
