Welcome to SAL 2009!

Happy New Year!

In the past couple of days, I noticed a post on the 123Stitch message board about a few ladies who were going to stitch a Rosewood Manor design called Inspiration. I have had this kitted up for quite a while, but I had not planned to stitch it just yet. However, the idea of a SAL really interested me since I have never done one before.

I have set up this blog so that we can post pictures and share our progress. I'm hoping that those joining in will introduce themselves so that we can all get to know each other as the year passes.

My name is Suzanne and I live in central Arkansas. I live with my 4 canine children, who in some ways are probably more spoiled than most human children! LOL I work as a mental health therapist (although I am currently between jobs and actively looking). I have been stitching for about 25 years (yeah, ok, I'm in my 40s...) I have varied taste in designs that I like to stitch. Some of my favorite designers include Lizzie Kate, Bent Creek, A Mon Amie Pierre, L&L, Homespun Elegance, Shepherd's Bush, Little House Needleworks, Country Cottage Needleworks, and the Paula Vaughan designs that have been adapted for cross stitch. Like I said, I have varied taste! LOL

If you would like to join us, let me know and I can add you as an author and add you to the list of stitchers on the blog. Email me at

I'm looking forward to this year and stitching this beautiful design!

Happy Stitching,

  1. Good morning! Thank you Suzanne for setting up this blog for this SAL! Very nice and something new for me to learn. My first time at blogging, but looks like fun.

    My name is Dana and I live on the border of West/Middle TN. I am married, have two children, Kristin (12) and Luke (5). I work in the accounting field as a GL clerk for a tanning product distributor. I really enjoy my job most of the time, until about Nov, when audit time arrives. Gets pretty hectic sometimes! LOL!

    I am a big Mirabilia fan. DO NOT ask Becky the ratio of how many charts that I have to how many I have finished....

    I also like LK's, Bent Creek, Raise the Roof and have done some Paula Vaughn's (She signed the back of one). I used to be a one project girl until I found 123stitch.... it's been downhill since. I think that I have 4 WIP's right now, and probably some more that I have forgotten about! I love BIG projects. I have And They Sinned fully kitted up, and I also have the chart for The Sistine Chapel. Just dying to start that one....

    Are we gong to have set days to post pictures of our progress?

    Off to straighten things up so I can stitch a LOT today!
