So Excited :) and another peek

I just want to thank everyone that replied and will be joining the SAL. I am so overwhelmed by the response. :)  I have been working on mine so I can post a picture of it on Saturday. I have my other stitching to do too so I got a head start. Sorry!! But I think you will like it. I used some French Knots because those are my favorite and I tried some drizzle stitches in the center of the flowers,  I will give you a link to a video that can teach you if you would like to try some. I am stitching mine on white.  (But you can always just cross stitch if you prefer) :) No STRESS just FUN!!
Here is another messed up peek of the Mystery Sampler. Cant wait until Friday and just keep in mind that I will be posting the pictures that you send to me along with a link to your blog if you have one. I started our own page so lets have fun and share if you can.


  1. love it you are so creative-thanks
    for creating this-great idea-are the birds you are teaching classes

  2. I am very excited too Donna! Can't wait to get started!

  3. Hi Donna! Thank you for your confirmation and welcoming email. I went to my LNS yesterday and got a nice linen that is far from white and substituted the pinks for some warmer tones to fit in here. Have some stitching to try to fit in today before getting the first part of your mystery tomorrow. I have an idea from the mystery picture, but I'll wait and see. This is so much fun!

    Thanks again!
