A reminder: Mirabilia/L&L SAL is about to start... want to join us?

The SAL group is an open ended group - you can join us at any time! We have set a January 1st start date as a leaping off point. The more the merrier! There are no rules - well one, you need to have a Mirabilia or L&L project going... stitch when you want, take as long as you want, but share some progress with us in your blog, chat with us in the group... this is for fun. I noticed today there are 33 of us in the group now... you can join us at Mirabilia/L&L SAL Group... I hope you will join us!
It is Wednesday, so I worked on Celtic Winter. OK, I had interruptions here and there and didn't start until late... yet I felt I stitched and stitched for so long and what did I get done? I stitched her fluffy white muff and then some of her dress line underneath it... I wonder if that even shows in this photo? It's very sparkly tonight!! I will probably stitch for a bit more tonight though... I didn't go back to the swirls tonight - I will probably finish those next week....

Vacation is half over now... not getting much stitching done at all.... just been busy here doing various things... Oh yeah, it is SBQ day...

Q. How do you balance your stitching time with your other obligations such as work, household chores, etc.?

A. Well, to be honest....my husband and I have divided our work load as such - I work busy hours at my office, and he works at home - this includes housework and cooking. I do the laundry, though. So, I pretty much can stitch after dinner on weeknights. On the weekends, I am pretty flexible with stitching time. Sometimes I can stitch a little at work, as I am in private practice. If my paperwork is going well and my phone calls are caught up, I can sometimes fit in a little bit of stitching - but not lately though....

Stitched on today: Celtic Winter

Thanks for reminding me Carol. I need to get my chart, fabric and threads together for 'Snow Angels'(pretty sure that is the name of it)

have a mirabilia project going? Think it might help me drag Fairy Flora out of hiding? I'm afraid going back to two big projects right now but put me off, so I may drag my heels on this one for now.

Carol, your Celtic Winter is looking wonderful. Great job! I just recently received this pattern at 40% off, but it will wait. Really looking forward to doing The Scent of Old Roses on your Mirabilia SAL Stitchers group! Also glad you opened it to L&L designs. This will help me too---eventually, lol!

Celtic Winter is looking great! I'm impressed with your gold swirls, I tried to do a whole lot one evening, and got bored and frustrated at keeping up with all the odd stitches after about half an hour! LOL ... I'm really excited that it looks like a few of us should finish our Celtic ladies in the next month or so :)

I came across a piece of Silkweaver's Ocean Fantasy in my fabric drawer this afternoon ... haven't tried it as a floss toss yet, but I'm hoping it will work for the mermaids, like I need yet another new start!

Sounds like a great schedule you and your husband have worked out. It's great how much time you have to stitch, I love to see all the progress on your pieces!

Hey Carol, wow you have been busy. I started on mine again last night, but not enough for an update just yet. Maybe tomorrow lol.

Hugs xxxxx

She is looking good, Carol. It is hard to get a good pic of this one because the blues are so light and blend into the fabric. How is the whisper to stitch with on the muff?
