not long now...........

woops my little counter was out of whack and so am I..............
all my days are mixed together and today I realised what the date/day it was and my counter was wrong so I just fixed it................so you all have to wait another day.............well not really another day it was just 14hrs out but that clicked over to another day............
But maybe it is a chance to get some sewing supplies together...
needles, thread, fabric, sewing machine, sewing mojo.............
have you got your sewing mojo ready...........
and just as I am sitting here I have worked out a project for January while your getting your supplies together for the SAL.............
for the January project you will need your embroidery threads, cream background fabric, 
So what do you think............would you like it to be a numerous projects SAL like 2013 or a one project SAL.............tell me what you think.......don't suggest a particular project/s as I have already decided on that...............
and my criteria is the pattern/s must not cost a fortune like in a lot of BOMS, numerous individual patterns, AND it can be made from your stash
numerous projects 
or 
one project
And yes I am having fun teasing you girls..............
cheeky and wicked but not evil............hehehe......

Susie said...

Ooohhh. Just stumbled upon this again I couldn't keep up last time but loved doing the SKOW quilt.

shez said...

Nemo said...

Numerous! I don't think I can commit to one big project this spring (not sure how my new "assistant" is going to like mummy crafting..).

Janice said...

I can handle cheeky and wicked......just as well you aren't evil. I don't care what you give us. Numerous means finishes...but is easier to opt out of along the way, while one keeps you committed. Mind you, you will keep nagging me to do lots of finishes. Bring it on!

Yvonne W said...

I have not completed my SKOW as yet-- so may be banned from this! Small projects are more likely to be completed. Looking forward to seeing what you are planning.

Susan said...

What will be, will be. You have us under your spell! I'm voting small and numerous.....but I think you are teasing us in more ways than one.
Yes a warm up project is fine....got plenty of cream fabric and more than plenty threads.
Bring it on!

Bizzy Martine said...

You're having fun teasing us!!! Small projects are easier to finish. I just hope that I can find all the patterns in Belgium!!!

Narelle said...

I'm thinking along the lines of one project worked on in sections but I'm happy to go with the flow :o)
Looking forward to having something to reboot my mojo.

Deb said...

Yep I am all for the numerous also Chooky. They are easier to finish if smaller.

Motherdragon's Musings said...

This teasing is fun and will end soon!
One big would be good, that is so have one project completed in a year, but I am happy to go with the flow.

Maria said...

Hello everyone
My name is Marlene Carpes and I live in Brazil.
It is the first time I join a SAL so I have no experience, if I commit some mistake please correct me, because I am using Google translator to communicate, which can cause some misunderstanding in translation. I am very happy with this new experience and eager to get started.
