My first SAL - Trick or Treat!


My new cross-stitching friend, Linda of Stitchin With My Furbabies, invited me to do a Stitch-Along with her on "Trick or Treat" by Ursula Michael. She was so kind and gave me an extra chart, so we could stitch on it together. We plan to do our SAL on Fridays. There are 8 more Fridays before Halloween, so I hope we can finish by then. It will be fun to stitch it together. I have never done that before.

I went to a LNS today and bought 22ct evenweave for Flaming June. The finished size will be 14"x16", so the piece of fabric is 20"x22". I don't have any floss for it yet.

I love seeing pics of other stitchers' pets on their blogs, so I am including one of my favorite pics for you! All three kitties are eating together (Bubbles, Billy, Blueberrie).

Hi Debbie, Great start. I think you have a tad bit more done than me. I had a handicap. Smeegol would not leave me alone. Love your kitties. Are they pesty like mine when you try and stitch? Chat with you later.

Enjoy your SAL. I haven't tried one of those mainly because I don't really have any form of routine in my life - LOL!!

Have fun with your SAl. I love kitten photos too - it is no surprise, I think that so many cross stitchers have kittens and cats.
