I was talked into joining a stitch-a-long (SAL) for Heirloom Nativity Sampler (Victoria Sampler) recently - it didn't take too much arm twisting as it is one that was on my to-do list. My biggest reservation was that I'd also talked myself into joining the Heirloom Christmas Sampler (Victoria Sampler) SAL at the same time. That one hasn't started yet as a couple of people are still awaiting their materials, but the Nativity one started on the 1st of September. Some people are doing really well are up to band 8 - I'm still on band 1 (counting each row of different stitching as a band).
Here it is as it stands anyway - the fabric is a hand-dyed opalescent called Soft Skies from CountryStitch - it's actually a bit bluer than it looks in the photo - so I'm not doing the falling snowflakes as I think that would look silly. I may change my mind at the end, but I will wait until then to see if it looks good without them.
