Ready...Set...Stitch-a-long!!


The SAL Sunday has finally arrived!  After ordering the charts and the long wait for the fabric and getting the fibres organized....Kati and I are starting our Carriage House Samplings - Molly today! So every Sunday we will put aside what we are stitching and stitch on Molly.  And we intend to continue on with the other three of her "girls" as well.  So our Sunday SALS are set for at least a couple of years I would think.  LOL 

So today my plan is to go to the grocery to pick up a couple of things, and then because it's going to be a gorgeous day I'm going to settle out on the patio with my stitching and a couple of girl movies in the portable dvd player.  I really should mow the lawn too (hubby is still out of town) but I'm thinking that putting a call in to my brother is in better order and he can do it.  LOL


In the mean time I have to show you my new WIP.  Carriage House's The Song they Sang.  I LOVE stitching this!  and I love this fabric.  I'm stitching it on the fabric that I order and waited for forever, 32 ct Lugana - Goldspinner!  It's BEAUTFUL fabric!  And so lovely to work with!  OH! I can't say enough.  It's mottled beautifully too.  I'm sorry that you can't really see it on the scan, but perhaps you'll see it when I take a picture of it with the camera.  It's just beautiful.  It's the same fabric that I'll be using for the 4 girls as well.

So that's it for today.  I hope to show you some progress on our SAL tomorrow!
Have a stitchy day everyone!

Great new start!! I'm looking forward to following your Sunday SAL. I ordered Silkweaver fabby and it took almost a week to arrive. I'm happy with it despite the wait and the unserged edges.
