Cross-stitch, quilting, craft….

Festive Ornament SAL

I thought it would be fun to have a Christmas ornament SAL next year.….and even more fun to have other stitchers joining in. Which led to FOSAL being created.

Remember when we were kids how much fun lucky dips were? FOSAL is a bit like that!

How it works:


Pick out twelve patterns for Christmas ornaments that you would like to stitch during the year.  (Any kind of stitchy goodness, not just cross stitch.)

Kit each one up separately. (Snap lock bags are an easy way of doing this.)

Place them together in a box/bag for safe keeping.

On the 1st of each month close your eyes, put your hand in your box/bag and pull out one kit. That is the one you are working on for the month.


Pick a new project every month.

During the week beginning 1st January, please post a list and a related picture of your choices.

During the weeks listed below, post each month’s finished ornament for all to admire.

Start date: 1st January, 2010.

  1. Oh, Sue, I’d love to join this! Sorely tempted … but I’ll have to see about getting myself set up with the projects first before I commit. I made it through ten of the twelve biscornu last year, so maybe I can launch into a new SAL for 2010. I’ll muddle on it for a day or so and let you know.

    Happy holiday season to you and The Missus!
