Welcome to the Prairie Schooler SAL blog. This is a blog to celebrate our stitching of the wonderful designs from the lovely ladies of Prairie Schooler. Pamela and Nancy are retiring to take a well deserved break after 32 years of giving us cross stitchers the most wonderful designs and so much pleasure. The rules of the blog are simple: post a progress pic or a finish whenever you like, as long as it is a Prairie Schooler Design.

Hello, fellow Prairie Schooler lovers!
Good morning, everyone! My name is Carol (from the United States) and I know many of you from my blog, Stitching Dreams, but I'm excited to meet more Prairie Schooler addicts, too. If you've read my blog, you know that Prairie Schooler stitching is my "comfort stitching"--nothing makes me as happy or as relaxed as stitching one of their designs. I'm so sad they are retiring, but, luckily, I have quite a nice stash of their charts to keep me busy for years to come...
I recently finished this small lakeside scene from the "Weather Wise" book no. 145. You can read more details in this blog post.
I finished it into a small pillow to set on a shelf or in a basket and added a big white reef knot for a cute accent.
Two other blogging friends and I have been stitching PS Santas on Sunday and here is my latest finish from the "Old World Santas" book no. 80. What a handsome guy!
And here are all four that I have stitched so far this year--which is your favorite?
Hope you enjoyed my PS finishes this morning. I am very happy to be part of this group and love the fact that there are stitchers from around the world participating... Thanks so much, Kaye, for bringing us all together!
