Ann Dale SAL

The Azalea Sampler Guild met last Saturday for our monthly stitching gathering. At the December gathering, we had started talking about the Shakespeare's Peddler release of the BIG Ann Dale Sampler. Next thing we knew a SAL was organized, emails were flying and calls were being made to our favorite online needle shops for supplies. Our goal was to have this be a New Years Day start and I think every member accomplished that.

We thought we'd share photos of our progress with our members who couldn't attend and with our bloggy friends who visit us.

Kerrie is our SAL mistress!
She is the queen of BAP's & has a fabulous rotation schedule - who else could lead our SAL for us?
She is sending us a monthly newsletter with fabulous tips and a bit of sampler/motif history along with guiding us to the next section to stitch. Thank you Kerrie!

Melody's Progress
She has changed up several of the thread colors. Her linen is gorgeous!

Carol's Progress
Carol is thinking about changing a color or two herself.
It'll be interesting to see what she does.
Carol is one of our most distant members but attends our gatherings very regularly!

Kris's Progress
Kris's needle is flying. Any tips on that over 1 section Kris?
There's no doubt that Kris will meet her goal of finishing AD this year.

This is her first SAL and she's glad it's pressure free!

Very nice job, Jackie! Don't we look industrious?

Jackie said...

We look great! I loved seeing everyone's samplers and of course, the time stitching together is priceless!

They are all gorgeous!

Thanks for the nice write-up Jackie. Just make sure you're on the correct thread when starting each over-one stitch in the verse. On 40-count it sometimes seems like I'm stitching on a spider's web!

great job updating the blog Jackie
Loved seeing everyone's progress last weekend - I am trying to be monogomous to Ann but I am just not a one project person LOL but so far it is enjoyable. However I am dreading the over 1 - Mel
