Finished the Xmas in July SAL piece

Hello Everyone! Not a whole lot to report today. I am still working on HAED Hold on to Hope. But I would like to finish the page I'm working on before I post an update. However I have finished the Xmas in July SAL piece that I have been participating in. We did one square per day for the 25 squares and today is July 25th, so we're finished. Karen at Sunshine Stitches made such a pretty pattern and I really enjoyed doing this SAL. It has been a lot of fun. It was exciting waiting each day for the new square to be added to the pattern. And each square was such a quick stitch that it didn't take anytime at all to get it done. I do highly recommend checking out Karen's blog here, Sunshine Stitches. She has some great patterns that she has designed and are for sale also. 

And without further ado, here is my finished Xmas in July piece!


So what do you think? I still have to get a frame for it and everything. But I really like how Karen let us choose whatever colors that we liked. It was nice to have that creative freedom to help make her design our own. I don't know if I am completely happy with the colors I chose. But I do have the pattern saved so that I can stitch it again and again if I want.

Well, that is all I have for now.

Happy Stitching, Crafting and Blogging!

Until Next Time,
♥ Margie ♥
