New SAL Project - Happy Home Sampler

Since I don't have enough projects to stitch yet (ha ha), I'm going to be starting another new one tomorrow - Happy Home Sampler by Linda Bird from the July 08 issue of Cross Stitch & Needlework! I'll be stitching this along with Becky & Vonna. Becky posted it & I feel in love with it. I had the mag on order & it arrived today, isn't it cute? I'm trying to decide between 32 & 36 ct fabric... Antique White. I have the DMC pulled & am ready to start. Hopefully I'll get to stitch at least a couple of hours tomorrow. :-) Won't you join us?

My niece had her last day of school today. She came over for a couple of hours this afternoon and we enjoyed having her. I can't believe she is now going into the 3rd grade! Where is that little baby girl I used to hold & cuddle for as long as my sister would let me keep her?! She's growing up so fast. We're very proud of her too. She made the "headmaster's list" for the year, which means she kept her average at 95 & above with all of her grades for the entire year! She's a smart little girl! :-)

Happy stitching!

I will enjoy watching the progress the three of you make on this sampler. It's really cute!

A beautiful sampler. I would suggest 36ct with one strand - it would look so delicate then. But, of course, it's your decision! Look forward to seeing WIP.

Hi Amy,

I got my magazine today. I think I'm going to SAL with you all! :)

That's a beauty Amy. I'm going to pass on joining you ladies on the SAL. I'll be a cheerleader and cheer you on as you make progress.
Hannah is growing up so fast. Seems like only yesterday she was a tiny toddler.

Cogratulations to your niece! I know you are very proud. The SAL piece is a gorgeous sampler.

I LOVE this sampler (& a bunch of others, as you very well know). Like I need one more thing to stitch, but I believe I might have to join this particular SAL.
Time has a way of flying, doesn't it, especially with children?

I can't believe Hannah's already in the 3rd grade or will be in August. Wow. I remember the pics of her when she was really little. I feel old now. LOL Great SAL, show some progress when as you go.

I can't wait to see all 3 of your progresses. I also can't believe how old your niece is.

Amy I am wondering if there is a problem with my email adress? Sent you an email as an answer to your second one, didn´t get your first one....
You can also use my email adress without the extra s....

Becky, Vonna and you just earned some major enabling points as I went to Chapters today and bought the magazine and am now trying to decide if I should stitch it on 32 ct. jobelan parchment (similar to ivory) or 32 ct. jobelan ivory. Think I'll do a floss toss on both before I start.
