My Sunday SAL

I started a new SAL on Sundays only with my oldest Yahoo group: Stitching_Sisters. Here is my first progress pic. It's "Haunted House" from the book 'Tis Halloween' by Blackbird Designs. This SAL is for Halloween, Thanksgiving, or autumn designs.

I spent Sunday watching 3 Lifetime movies as I stitched and did other things, like joining a new Yahoo Group for fans of Diana Gabaldon, the PhD author of the Outlander series and other books. The group is called OutlanderGathering, and it's fascinating, but you definitely have to love the books that are so involved they take 2.5 years for her to write. I just recently acquired the last of her books.

Last week was a stitching bust, as I'd taken out a UFO to work on, and a couple of days I didn'r get to stitch at all, but any progress I made except finishing a goldfinch has to be frogged because of being one stitch off, and there's no way I can make up for it. So much for a week's time. I've discovered I can no longer count!

I've acquired a few Halloween pieces the past few months myself! This looks like a good one.

Nice to have some dedicated stitching time Nancy. Mine was football season and that is over, so now I am all over the taget and stitching at will. LOL
Enjoy your new group.

You've had some great stitched pieces lately - love the Halloween stocking :D Have to say I'm an Outlander fan as well - still have the latest book yet to read, but I'm not starting it yet knowing that I won't be able to put it down until it's finished ... I think I need a couple of days off work soon LOL :D
