L*K SAL Month 2 Update!

I'm cheating today. 
I wrote this post on the 28th. 
DH and I are off celebrating our anniversary 
and I wanted to have this posted on the correct day. 
Please forgive me! :)
Happy New Year Everyone -
May 2013 be a year of peace,
joy, and happiness!

I must say I truly enjoyed this months' stitching on the SAL. Let it Snow was a wonderful little stitch and I managed to get ALL the extras on the piece finished. Now I can sit back and cruise through the remaining patterns. No more looking over my shoulder to see where the next border belongs! lol

Overall Progress So Far
The top photo upset me - in real life without the camera flash - you can't see the carryover with the snowflakes. I know I should have done each one separately but...there was NO way I would ever do that. I know my limits and confetti stitching is where I draw the line. :) 

This piece is going to be HUGE! Should I ask DH to start the frame now? Maybe I could have it made by next November if I whine enough. The question is - where to hang this beast next winter. Thinking in the hallway - only wall without something on it that is big enough. 

Hope this finds everyone happy and healthy this new year ~

I am loving your progress on the Snow people. It looks brilliant. I am still plugging away slowly and you can see my SAL progress on the tab at the top of my blog - very orginally called 6 Fat Men/Snow Belles SAL.

It looks like you had a wonderful time on you anniversary trip.

Hi! Are you doing the guys and the belles on one big piece of fabric? I think that is a great idea! I have all the patterns but need to decide how to stitch them. Are you just putting the two sets side-by-side on the fabric or what? Thanks for any info!
