Monday's Peppermint Twist SAL Report

Hello Friends :o) Hope you are warm and toasty on this Tuesday...because the temperature has dropped like a rock in good 'ol Indiana.....BRRRRrrrr!!!

Today I have to share my Peppermint Twist SAL that I'm in with a lot of other stitchers. This was Week #1's progress from last week on January 5, 2009:

And here is what I accomplished yesterday on Week #2 - January 12, 2009:



Peppermint Twist ~ Blue Ribbon Designs
Fabric: 32 ct. Tan Marble Sassy's Fabbys
Fibers: DMC


I honestly.....am loving the colors and the "squareness" of the whole sampler....I've never stitched a Blue Ribbon Design, but I can tell you - this won't be my last! I love it! It's really coming together - well I guess in the upper left hand corner it's "really coming together" LOL!



TUESDAY means.....I'm pulling out and dusting off my Inspiration WIP by Rosewood Manor and am SALing with the Moondragon herself who has started Inspiration too. So HURRAY....I'm really, really trying *hard* to get back into finishing some of my old WIPs and add to my walls and decor around here :o)

I Hope...... Tuesday brings your sunshine and rainbows - even if you have to wear a survival suit to enjoy them! LOL!



Until Next time....count your blessings and your stitches!

  19. I'm stitching this, too, with some buddies. It's my first Blue Ribbon design and it won't be my last--I really like it. Did you see the new similar-in-layout BR coming out at Market? It's on their site. Your WIP is beautiful! Love the choice of fabric.

    It's very nippy in my neck of the woods as well. Brrr! I'd love to stay inside until it warms up, but unfortunately, that's not an option.
