Ok so I’m a little excited about this SAL. I have been looking for one for a while that interested me but I’m not usually interested in stitching the design they choose, and it’s not as captivating when everyone is stitching the same thing so this one is fantastic!!!!
The piece I have chosen to join in with is “Christmas Magic” from Artecy. I couldn’t resist stitching this design the minute I saw it.
Here’s the progress so far:
Almost half way through page 2 and I can’t wait to start the next set of pages to see the design start to come to life. The complete pattern is 18 pages so I still have quite a way to go.
Feel free to scroll through the rest of the posts below to see the beginning of this WIP. It was started in 2015 and put away for quite a while So I’m happy to be working on it again.
A bit about me. You can find some more in-depth info in the profile section for the blog… in a nutshell I have many different crafts that I work on and seem to rotate through depending on my mood and the time of year. Everything from sewing, painting, drawing, etc.. but one of the constant things that I keep coming back to is cross stitch. My grandmother, mother, and sisters are all stitchers as well. ( so you better make sure the back of your work is tidy because the first thing they will do is turn it over to have a look) 😜.
I have spent the last 5.5 years working with embroidery machines for a promotional company. Recently I decided it was time for a change and I am currently working for a hotel. This also gives me more time to stitch because I can take it to work with me😁.
If there’s anything else you would like to know please feel free to ask. If you have any questions that I possibly might be able to answer please don’t be shy I will do my best to help.
A quick shout out to Avis over at sewingbesidethesea for being so welcoming.

Welcome to the SAL. Love your piece and can’t wait to see more.
It seems lovely to have so many relative also be stitchy, but that may just be because I’m the main crafty person in the family, so I never get hand-made presents 😦
Welcome to the SAL! It is a great group and has helped me tremendously getting back into a somewhat stalled project. It’s wonderful to have so many stitches in your family. Can’t wait to see this piece develop!
Welcome to the sal. That’s a really ambitious project but it’s going to look amazing when it’s done!
Welcome aboard! Nice to have someone else with a huge project. You’re in the right place. It’s amazing how motivating it is.
I love the project you’ve chosen to complete for the SAL. It’s a monster! Welcome to the group. I’m sure you’ll enjoy being motivated to stitch along with us 🙂
