I needed another SAL like I needed a …………………..

Well you know the rest.  But alas I just couldn’t resist the email sent by Carol of iStitch to participate in her Sew Advent SAL.  It is a 24 part band sampler that started today with a new band being sent out every day until the 24th.

I woke up this morning and the email with the 1st part was waiting for me.   Before I did anything else today, I stitched the 1st band up.

I am using 40 ct Newcastle Linen Flax and Needlepoint Silks colours – 991BB, 225 & 665.

Sew Advent SAL 2013

I am going to try and post every day as I make any progess on this SAL.

Is anyone else taking part in this SAL?  Are you doing it on 40ct or on a lower count?  Silk, DMC or ?????  I would loved to see what others are doing.

Take care and happy stitching!!!!!

Thank you for visiting!!!


  1. Great start! I am looking forward to seeing how this one progresses :)

  2. Sometimes SALs are just irresistable.
