Important Poll -- Your Expert Stitching Opinions Needed!

Hi stitching friends!  I've been gone for quite awhile -- not only from this blog, but from my stitching as well.  My counting my blessings project is still kind of floundering, but I do miss my stitching.

I've been tossing around an idea for a few weeks now, and I wanted to get your opinions.  I've been thinking of hosting a Christmas or holiday-themed stitch-a-long.  Something small and defined (like 25 days/squares).  I know that the holidays are such a busy time, already so packed with projects and a million things to do.  But the idea of stitching a bit each night during the holidays appeals to me.

So, the question is: does it appeal to you?  I'd like to get an idea whether anyone would be interested in another collaborative stitching project before I spend time trying to organize it.  (By the way, I contacted Amy Powers and asked her if she was planning to do a holiday stitching project.  She said she did not have one planned, and gave me her blessing to go ahead.)  So, I'd love to hear your opinions, thoughts, ideas, comments!  Please leave a comment here or on my other blog, Dishy Vintage.

Thanks, and happy stitching!


  1. I would love to do it, BUT, I am in the midst of crocheting Christmas presents.

    I had been thinking about doing a project . . . a sampler with different versions of something I like . . . like all snowmen, or all santa faces . . . but not necessarily a Christmas project. I just like these two topics institching.

    It could be flowers, leaves, stitch patterns . . .

    I just hope that after Christmas that someone starts another sampler of some type.

  2. hi Alison ,
    good to hear aboutr this new project idea of yours. tho i am much behind for my blessing square project , but still in asi am sure to finish it some time by next may ,
    anywyas a small project of 25 squares is appealing to me .a theme based on flowers or stitch pattern will do great i guesa, and that can get over fast too.
    count me in as i hope to hear from you .
    happy times

  3. I'd love to join something like this. My only worry is not being able to do a square a day with the hustle and bustle of Christmas - how about a Valentine themed one starting in the new year?
