Victoria Sampler Banner SAL

  • Posted on February 8, 2006 at 11:06 pm

Von and I have decided to have a SAL on a single instance of the Victoria Sampler seasonal banners starting March 1st. Von has just recently finished her Winter Banner and has now completed the set of all four seasons, while I have yet to finish a single season. *chagrined grin* Anyway, Von has graciously decided to stitch another banner for her stitching area, similar to how I stitched one for my intern this past summer. As a result, I’ll be going back to my Spring Banner from the cyberclass I took in the summer, which was then tossed aside to stitch the banner for my intern and Von will be stitch the banner for her stitching area.

I want to put out an open invitation to anyone else who is working on these banners, has the patterns but didn’t complete the cyberclass or whatever to join us this March. If you interested in joining us in this SAL, please leave a comment or drop me a line to let me know that you want to be part of the fun. 🙂

In the meantime, in addition to everything I’m already working on, I’ve taken on the commitment to stitch another panel for the World Trade Center quilt (this time I’m stitching a waving flag on white aida) and I’m stitching a needlebook SAL as part of the Dragonfly Stitches Yahoo! group. I’ll be starting both of them this week, with any luck, though it may involve skipping my monthly scrapbooking night… AGAIN.

Headache-less Day!

I scored another small victory against the vile headache monster today. 😀 Nothing much else to report, since we left work late and then went grocery shopping. We didn’t get home until 8:00 PM and then had to put all of the groceries away, portion off 7 lbs of ground beef into 1/2 lb. increments and freeze it, make dinner, eat… you get the picture. No stitching today, as a result. I did start a new piece yesterday, though. I’ll try to take a scan when it gets to a substantial state. It’s an exchange gift, but not due until July and it’s for an exchange on the VSCyberstitchers Yahoo! group where we actually show photos of the pieces with any personalization blanked out and then heartily tease each other about who is getting which gifts! It’s quite fun that way, honestly. That way, what you actually receive is still a surprise, but we really get people excited about the exchange as we talk about it and post finished photos. So, at least I can post WIP pictures as I go on this one. 🙂

For now, though, it’s time for bed!
