Stocking Progress and a SAL

First, I have joined some very talented people in an interesting SAL.  I have done SALs (Stitch-A-Longs) before – where each person participating stitches the same design over a period of time.  Those a super fun,  This one is different…I get to choose something that I am currently working on and post my progress every three weeks.  Then link up to the other people in the SAL so we can all share our progress with each other and with others.  I am looking forward to this as hopefully it will keep me on track.  I have chosen the Candy Cane Santa Stocking that I started mid-July for my son.  This is my first post for this SAL and I am excited to be joining!IMG_0824

This is where I am right this minute.  This is the header where my son’s name will be stitched.img_0745

This is where I was not too long ago.img_0744

This is the pattern I am stitching.  I am hoping to finish this by the end of the year so my son can use it at Christmas time.

If you get a chance, please take a look at these lovely blogs and check out the progress on some fantastic projects!
