Checking in on our first “Mary” Monday I would like to bounce some ideas around with the group.
Sometimes SAL’s don’t suit everyone’s work loads and standing commitments so I think it would be nice not to have fixed deadlines.
Stitching is all about enjoyment not pressure.
How about if we try and work on Mary at least once per week whether that session is just putting in just one strand of floss or a few hours of work - we all have a pace we like to work at and a SAL is not a race to the finish.
The important thing is that in a few weeks or month’s down the line she is not at the bottom of your WIP basket forgotten about and that momentum is maintained.
Mondays will make a good check in day when we can share our progress and tips about Mary.
Originally I was thinking to start the SAL in the middle of January but I understand that there are quite a few who like to start a project on New Year’s Day. What are your thoughts about a start date?
The stitchers I have for the SAL so far are:-
Mj (as a possible)

For this first round of voting please comment on this post (or on the facebook post in the group here!) which samplers you have an interest in stitching, you can choose more than one!!! example: 1, 4, 6, 9 etc. ****DUE TO OVERWHELMING INTEREST the first round vote will end November 30th at Noon EST**** and the three most popular samplers chosen will then go to a final vote! For details on each pattern please go to The Scarlet Letter website.
