I am Chris I have been stitching for some years altho had a break when life stresses took over but in the last four years haven't stopped stitching and manage to stitch most days. I saw Kathy's lovely work last March and then Lynn's as well, at the beginning of this month at a lovely stitchers day organised by Lynn, so I have taken the plunge and decided to do something big!! I have become a Celtic Lady follower and have 'Summer' all ready to go.I am using 28c Jobelan Evenweave colour Silversage from Polstitches and all DMC threads as most of the Needlepaints are now discontinued.
Can't wait to get started but have one more motif to do on my Beatrice Potter Quaker to reach my months target of three motifs before I can allow myself to begin this!!
Happy Stitching everyone, if anyone wants to chip in with advice that you think I might need, I'd be most grateful.

I am new to this SAL so thought I had better show how far I have got with my Celtic Christmas...
I started this on Saturday 19th September 2009 and have done some on it every day since. This is because I am loving it some much. Thank you Kathy for encouraging me to have a go at one of these. I was also bought a Lowery stand by a very close friend for stitching this.. ain't I a lucky girl..lol
Here is my progress so far....
I am stitching it on 28 ct Zweigart Brittney in Natural and the fabric colour doesn't show up well in this pic.
When I have finished this one I have Celtic Spring kitted up and waiting in the wings. I really want to stitch all these
Hugs to all xx

Hi there everyone! Long time, no see. Hope you're all well. I have popped along to see what's happening here every now and then and your celtic ladies are coming along beautifully :o)
Since I left the group in Kathy's wonderfully capable hands in April I haven't really had much time for stitching, until this last couple of weeks when I have managed to fit in a few hours here and there. I thought I'd pop on and show you my 'very, very slow' progress:
I'm not sure when my next update will be as the next six weeks is going to be a bit chaotic here so I might not have much time again for stitching. Mind you, Kathy is coming over for a visit in two weeks and my young one will be at his Daddy's that weekend so no doubt there will be a lot of stitching going on then!

And thanks Kathy for accepting my pretty please :D
I'm Andie, you may have seen me around as Stitchitandie.
Currently I am stitching Celtic Spring. Here she is
Previously I have stitched Noel for my Mum, Summer for my cousin (in a dmc conversion) and Autumn in a colour conversion for me. As I want to do the whole set for us I have a few to go :D Oh and my Mum just requested Winter as well....
Thank you for allowing me to join this SAL...
I am stitching Celtic Christmas at the moment and I will post a progress pic over the next couple of days. I have been working on it for 3 weeks now and am thoroughly loving doing it.
I have Celtic Spring to do next. I want to do all of them but need the charts for Autumn, Summer and Winter. Does anyone have any of these charts for sale ??
Can't wait to see everyone progress over the coming months.
Hugs to all
