Northwind SAL Week 8

Going to jump right in this week - 



As you can see there are just the two of us so far. Angela was away for the weekend and Rose has been super busy again this week. When I get their updates I'll edit the post and add them in.

Shari made great strides and has plans to finish hers this week. Mine is close to being done too - just a few snowflakes to go. (Honestly - it's done now) I just couldn't show more than 2 days worth of stitching without cheating. This SAL took a bit longer than expected but has been great fun. I got to meet another wonderful stitching sister and got to know two others much better. I am thankful to have been stitching with such great women!

**Edited** - Angela came out of her coma (her words not mine) and sent off her weekly picture. She's had a long weekend away and needed some recovery time. Visiting with friends and family will do that to a person! lol She doesn't believe that she'll finish in week 9 but has high hopes to get it done by week 10!

To fill my time and not cheat - I worked on this!

Peppermint Twist
Little House Needleworks
Scrap of 28ct linen
Recommended flosses
This makes number 45 in the completion column! I have another ornament about half done. It should be finished tonight if I stay busy and not get too distracted by Dancing with the Stars, 3 comedies on CBS, and the Kardashian wedding. I'm such a sucker for that show. 

btw - To all my Canadian friends - Happy Thanksgiving! 

I'm off to wake DH for work. Shift work makes strange sleeping times! Take Care and have a great day!

So, what's next in the SAL world coz I'd love to hop on over and join in if that would be ok. I hope you are getting that hand back into shape and not overdoing it, not that stitching would overdo anything but you know what I mean.
Be always in stitches.
