SAL #4 - Puppy Love Complete!

Hello everyone!

I just wanted to pop in and show that I have finally completed my version of the Puppy Love stitch-a-long. I had the stitching done a while ago, and managed to get the piece framed last week. It's now displayed proudly on top of our fireplace in the living room.

Thanks for looking! I can't wait to see what next year's SAL will be!

Hello From a New Member

Hello Margaret Sherry lovers.  My name is Julianne and I would like to introduce myself.  I contacted Nia to ask if I might join in the fun here.  I have been visiting  the blog for awhile and could see what a nice group of stitchers this is.

I live in Northern California about 40 minutes east of San Francisco.  I have been cross stitching for almost 30 years.  I have a blog but have not been real active with it recently http://juliannep.blogspot.com

I have not stitched any of Margaret Sherry's designs but I did purchase the book of her designs about a year ago and really want to stitch some.  I thought joining the group here would give me the push that I need to do it.

I look forward to joining in here with all of you.

Halloween Exchange - from Judith to Amber

Those who regularly read our Margaret Sherry Lovers blog know that Judith has been going through a rough time lately, so I'm deeply thankful and touched that she found the time to send me this wonderful package for our Halloween Exchange.

(Judith, I've tried sending you thank you messages through email, but both times I've received a Delivery Failure Notice saying that there was a problem with the server. Hopefully, you're still checking in with our blog from time to time and you'll see my thanks here.)

My hubby and I moved last March and I'm still in the process of decorating our walls with artwork, cross stitches, and other crafting projects, so the autumny "Willkommen" sign Judith sent will make a welcome addition to our front entryway! Plus, this is the first Archie Bear I've received, and one that I've been trying to find time to stitch for myself, so I was delighted to see that he was the design that Judith had stitched for me.

Once again, thank you Judith! I look forward to using the crafting notions you've sent and decorating my home with the lovely ornaments. I send you big hugs from Canada to Germany!

I have completed SAL #4 ... well I was going to do all of it but one of the kiddies liked just the main dog and wanted him lol So I decided to just stitch the main part of the SAL rather than do the same picture over again!!  So here he is ...

This night my mum passed away. The best is that she mustn't suffer. Sleeping she passed.
I am deeply sad and I hope that i can return to normally sooner or later.

Another cute dog:)

Hello girls!
While some of us are still waiting for our Halloween exchanges, i want to show you the little dog from SAL#4. As i'm running out of time to do everything that i want till the end of the year, i decided to stitch just the central dog from this SAL.
I still don't know what will be his final, but when i do, i will tell you.
I've enjoyed a lot to stitch this little guy;)

Good stitchings to all of you, girls;)


Halloween from Amber :)

So nice to see packages arriving to their destinations :)
Mine was received by Angel and I've also received Amber's gift to me!!

In fact, the package arrived last week, I've contacted Amber already but it took me a while to post here.. sorry ladies. Last week we had a sad news, a dear friend passed away, that was my reason for not posting right away.

Today, I've just posted my gift to Angele on my blog, you can see more photos here :)

And now it's my turn to say thank you Amber =) The first thing I did was to write an email but it's never too much to say thanks again ;)

A package full of fun halloween goodies and an adorable stitched pillow!! :D
Thank you Amber!!! It was fun to open your package and find each thing :) Also lovely to know how special this design is for you ♥ thank you for the sweet words =)

I am new here!

Hi everybody,

My name is Natalya and I'm happy to join MSherry lovers blog! I am from the 3rd largest city in Russia - Novosibirsk, which means in English - "New Siberia". And yes, its located in Siberia. I have a lot of hobbies - scrapbooking, card making, sewing, making teddy bears, decoupage. But cross stitching is the leader! My grandmother taught me more then 19 years ago and I can't stop! I love cross stitching!

Right now I have a maternity leave and spend all my time with a 1.3 year old son. He is very nosy boy and it's quite difficult to find time for cross stitching when he is awake. But almost every day I try to spend at least 20 for my favourite hobby.

And one of my favourite designers as you understand is Margaret Sherry. Her characters are so lovely and funny. I think most of my relatives and friends have at least one MS cat or any other MS design.

Here is my blog, but I post all my works in the Picasa WebAlbum. Welcome!

Halloween exchange - posting alert!!

Hello ladies!
So how is everyone doing on your Halloween parcel?

I finished mine last weekend but I still need to take photo before posting =/ Monday and Tuesday were really busy days, I hope to take photos today and go to the post office until tomorrow :p But I know there's time, I'm sending to Angel, mail only takes a few days to arrive ;) No worry! :)

What about you? Only 4 parcels on the way yet.. will everyone post this week? Who's behind, who's running? :p

Important note:
There was a some confusion about the stitching piece...
Do you remember when I posted here about the choice of design? Margaret Sherry has only a few Halloween designs so we agreed it could be a free choice = free choice of any Margaret Sherry designs!! Here on the group, is always about Margaret Sherry, ok ladies? :)
So.. there might be a couple of unexpected suprises :p heehheeh I hope no one will mind and will forgive the misunderstanding, next time, everyone will know better =)

To everyone, please, pay attention to the posting time, if you're sending to some friend who lives far away, don't take too long to post! Try to post this week, ok? We don't want our partners to receive their gifts after Halloween :p Please, try your best ;)

Don't forget to send me an email with the photo from your parcel and let me know you have posted it!!
Thank you :)

SAL Puppy Love complete :)

Hello ladies!! :)
I know I have a few emails to reply, I need some free time to update our exchange list status :p I'll do it later today, everyone will get an email reply from me very soon ;)

Right now I want to share with you the reason why I was away from my laptop during the whole weekend :p I did a cros stitching marathon!!! LOL I stitched two puppies on my SAL and..

... it's complete!!! :D
Happy dance!!!! Uhuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu :D

I didn't stitch all french knots, just for punctuation. I was doing the knots and it wasn't looking nice because my french knots are big :p On my cross stitching, I don't have tight stitches and looks like the same goes for my french knots. Mine are not tight and small so it was looking to messy with so many dots close to each other!

I'm very happy with my final work, it needs a pretty frame now :)
