2016 Cross Stitch SAL

Ok, so...I have projects that I have started...and I was even given a kit (L.S.Lowry design) for Christmas...but...you know what's coming next right? None of them are grabbing me right now.  I do have to start knitting something for my cousins baby boy (due in March) but I want to stitch too.

I did join in with the Christmas Ornament SAL for three months until I had no time in which to stitch...I currently have a snowman with a head and no body!

I did find that it was a good project to have to stitch on and it motivated me and so I would love to take part in one during 2016. I am about to go off in search of one...currently I've only seen the frosted pumpkin passport SAL so far (which is nice) but wondered if any of you knew of any that were open to anyone (some of these groups can get quite cliquey) or if you were keen on starting one that I could join?

Lemme know! I'm all ears...I would also like to take it along to stitch this weekend at the second meeting of the group I started on new years day! eek!

  1. I've started a daily cross stitch sal, if that's the sort of thing you're looking for. Here's the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1662623100671334/?fref=ts

    1. They are very nice and have a real vintage feel - I was thinking they were a little small but then again that would mean id have no excuse! Thanks for the link Clare :

  3. I too am doing the Frosted Pumpkin one this year - I know cloudsfactory have one also on a very similar theme.

    1. I prefer the Frosted Pumpkin one purely because I like Kawaii designs. I may do that one as I do love travel! :)

  4. I joined Mabel Figworthy's hardanger SAL, Round in Circles http://www.mabelfigworthy.co.uk/sal.php There's a lot of small designs that you can stitch as cards, coasters, etc. or as one large design. She's the same designer of the Song of the Weather afghan I finished last year. I hope you find something you like!

    1. Poop! I seem to have joined that...all these suggestions are so good - i guess this year instead of something large i will be focussing on smalls which is good as i will have a lot of train time in which to stitch. I have long wanted to try Hardanger so thats pretty exciting!

  5. I've just joined one, but it's a whole year long thing so I'm not sure if it's what you are looking for. I'm also not sure if there are still spots open, but it wouldn't hurt to check:
