Hooray! I finally got all the materials together to start the Red Thread Stitch-Along (SAL). A SAL is an online group that all works the same piece together. In this case, it's a monthly piece with charming little patterns and a message about the people you are destined to meet. I'm a month and a half behind! I had to wait until my LSS (local stitchery shop) owner came back from Nashville, where they have a big convention/sales thingy--I don't know the real name--people just call it "going to Nashville!" She brought me back this delicious peachy-pink cloth--Bittersweet 28 ct Jobelan. I was so excited upon leaving the shop, I went right home and took a nap. Well.... it's a long drive.... and I had a busy afternoon and evening ahead.... okay, I'm a wimp. But I'm going to work on it today! Oh, boy! Oh, boy! Oh, boy!
