I have debated whether or not to make this post now. My husband and daughter have gone on a trip and they have taken my camera. I am able to take pictures with my son's camera, but it is not nearly as good as the one that has gone overseas.

But I have some ongoing SALs and I really don't want to wait another week until they return to post updates, so I will just make do. Thus said, please forgive the dark, blurry photos.

A few months ago, I joined a French forum, Les Copines, so I could participate in some of their SALs. So far, I have signed up for 3: Lizzie Kate's Christmas Flip-Its, Bent Creek Summer Snappers, and Madame La Fee's Gingerbread Cookies. The first two are ongoing, and the last begins near the end of April. With these SALs, everyone agrees to stitch on the same part of the design on a schedule, usually an objective every two weeks. I have found these to be enjoyable so far, and I like having the discipline of a schedule.

Here is the March update of the Christmas Flip-It Bits (this picture was taken before my camera left the country)

And here is Summer Snappers after two objectives. There is a new objective every 2 weeks. I promise that I will have a better picture next time.

And then I have stitched some on Mon Beau Chalet, I have not quite caught up to my March objective as I got a little off-schedule while I was stitching only HAED designs for a month (uh...I claim temporary insanity).

I return now to my stitching, and wish everyone a wonderful week!

That is some beautiful stitching you have going on. I have the LK Christmas flips all ready to go but.... you know how it goes.
Your French Chalet piece is especially nice.

You have some very nice WIPs going. And great progress pictures on all of them.
I love Mon Beau Chalet, is it an SAL where the parts are given one ofter the other? Or did you find it in a magazine?

Your WIPs look wonderful Laura.

I love your SAL pieces!In fact, I love SALs, as long as there aren't any rules. It's so nice to be inspired by other stitchers working on the same piece!
