Okay I'm in... thought I wouldn't start this 2nd SAL because I haven't finished the GJ but the pressure was too much so when I spotted the little book with the little stitcheries in it I couldn't resist buying it and some fabric to stitch them on knowing this would be a quick project.... I had planned to use the red thread suggested in the Tis the Season book but after reading your posts I'm now thinking maybe varigated thread or hand-dyed and I'm not making any decisions about which fabric until I finish the embroideries so I better go and trace the patterns, happy stitching everyone, Sheryl.

I didn't realise the book was little until it arrived, so it made it even better for me, I thought it won't take so long after all. Variegated thread sounds nice, you get a nice effect from it.

Welcome to the new SAL....I am just finishing up GJ as you will see in the next post on SAL...so you can still finish it and work on the stitcheries for TTS at the same time. I think I've decided to use blue. I looked at the fabric I had and just thought blues would look good, especially hanging on my red wall.
