My name is Chari and I live in Kansas City, MO. My mother taught me to cross stitch many years ago and I have been an avid stitcher since college. I have 4 daughters, Codi (10), Baileigh (8), Katelyn (7) and Brenna (4). Cross stitching is my therapy (I need a lot of "therapy" with all those girls!) My favorite artist for the past 10 years has been Marilyn. I completed one of her projects for each of my girls. Each started right before the girls were born. And now am working on the Celtic Ladies. I've been very surprised at how quick of a stitch they have been. I will have to get back to the store and buy more linen and a new pattern for our upcoming vacation because I'm not beading on the plane! These are my most recent pictures. Since then, all of the stitching has been completed and a good deal of the beading. Happy stitching all!
Welcome to the Celtic Lady Stitch-A-Long blog. We are a group of cross stitchers from around the globe who have been brought together by our love of the Lavender and Lace Celtic Ladies.
The aim of the SAL and this blog is to keep us motivated so our beautiful projects don't end up as UFO's (unfinished objects) and so that we can keep in touch with each another through our weekly progress photo's and posts.
As we all lead very different and often busy lives, we found it hard to have a specific day on which to stitch, but we do try to spend at least one day a week working on our lady.
There aren't really any rules for this SAL, except for one, asking for Charts, this is a no no. Please DO NOT ask if anyone has a chart on the blog, this is to stop copyright. Participants are asked to post an update with a photo of their WIP weekly if they can manage it, but once a month as a minimum.
This project will be ongoing as many of us wish to stitch more than one of the Ladies, so if you wish to join us at any time, please email Kathy for details.
