Welcome everyone to the Prairie Schooler SAL blog....

As I am sure that most of you know by now I decided to start this SAL when I heard the sad news for us stitchers that The Prairie Schooler is closing down:

cross stitch counted needlepoint pattern design
Goodbye

An era is ending, but I know that so many of us love Pamela and Nancy's designs and have lots of them in our stash.  Surely enough to get us through a few more years of stitching  - lol!

So, the idea with this SAL is that once a month (whenever we feel like it), we post our progress on our  Prairie Schooler projects on this blog.

I will start sending out the invitations to join this SAL blog to those stitchers who have already let me know that they want to join in the fun.  If anyone else is interested you can email me at the address on the top of the sidebar.  Please let me know the name of your blog, as well.

Also, please feel free to use the badge I have created, which is also on the sidebar, on your own blog.

I hope that you all have fun with this blog, I know that I will - there may even be some games and giveaways along the way!

hugs,

I love this! I will make sure to pick out some Santas that I really want to stitch! I have many of the charts, but have never stitched a PS Santa! It is time for me to do so! Thank you for thinking of this!

Definitely have my first Prairie Schooler design in mind. Can't wait to pull the fabric and threads for it.

Ohhh I just sent an e-mail your way. This will be very fun and very needed to start my Christmas ornaments and gifts. Thank you.

Woo Hoo ! I just found a PS Santa 2006 chart. Wasn't sure I had any of their designs. Have too many to know what all I do have, LOL! Then someone mentioned a Santa design they wanted to stitch it got me to thinking. I found it so I'm good to go!

I'd love to join this blog. I LOVE PS and also was very sad to read that they're retiring from designing. Luckily, I have a lot of PS designs in my stash...and will slowly be collecting more while they're still available.

I have a PS Students FB page if any of you would be interested in joining.
