What shall I stitch in 2015?
Here is my list for now, but it will probably change through the year.
I have borrowed all the information below from the hosts of the 2015 SAL rules/sign up pages. Please visit each of the SAL home pages for more information or to join.
2015 Smalls SAL - hosted by Heather at The Stitching Lotus (sign up to join).
Smalls: pin cushions, needlebooks, book marks, biscornus, ornaments, etc.
Rules: Stitch a small every month. You get to decide what a small is for you. 50×50 stitches? 100×100 stitches? It’s up to you. You just need to be able to get it done by the check-in day. (WIPs that you complete in time for the check-in are great too!)
- Post a picture of your completed small (stitching done, but the actual finishing is optional) on the last Wednesday of every month.
- Hop over here to my blog and add a comment to the current month’s check in post to get an entry into the end of the year draw.
January 28 ** February 25 ** March 25 ** April 29 ** May 27
June 24 ** July 29 ** August 26 ** September 30
October 28 ** November 25 ** December 30
This is my first time joining so not sure of all the rules (too many to list here ... see Mel's complete list of rules. Also checked the 2014 rules looking for when to post each month see below in red text. I will have to see when other participants are posting.
There are two parts to the challenge this year each lasting for a 6 month time-period.
$25 a month budget in place for each month. This is a total of $150 over the 6 months that you can buy guilt free on any stash you choose.
Totally Useless Stitch-A-Long. You collect your Old Ratty Threads in a jar - post photo of your ORTS each month on the new moon.
The 2015 New Moon dates to post your progress photos:
January ? ** February ? ** March ? ** March ? ** April ?
May ? ** June ? ** July ? ** August ? ** September ?
October ? ** November ? ** December ?
I have decided that at the end of next year for incentive I will do a prize for posting. If you post every month and show your update then you will be entered into the draw at the end of the year. If you happen to complete your stitchy piece keep updating with a wip piece until the end of year.
