A Time Forever Gone SAL ...

Hello everyone,

I know I'm a bit late getting this information posted, but it is my great pleasure to let you know that starting August 15, 2015, I will be leading an open SAL for my newest design, A Time Forever Gone.

As some of you may already know, I had a major accident with my first model of this design when I accidentally spilled a full glass of iced tea on it.  Because it is stitched with silk overdyed threads, which are not colorfast, the colors ran and ruined the whole thing.  Consequently, I had to start over.  I thought, since I will be stitching a little ahead of those who've purchased the chart, it would be fun to do a SAL.  I will post monthly assignments, which will be available as printable PDF files.  Originally I had planned to post the assignments on this blog, but decided I will set up a new blog just for the SAL.  Since it will not be private, anyone who wants to join in is welcome to do so.
          I so look forward to having those interested in the SAL, join me on August 15, 2015, for the first installment.  I will post the name of the blog and a link to it, once I have it up and ready to go.  To be continued ...


  1. Wonderful news about the SAL. I will be joining it when it's open. The sampler is just so beautiful. Thanks letting us know so we can be gathering the threads.

  2. Sad news about your accident with this sampler. I was so excited when you quickly released it in May. I have it ready to go and would enjoy doing the SAL along with you. I must be crazy. I have Delaware Sampler going with Swan Sampler guild at the same time.

  3. So sorry to hear of the accident that ruined your work. I am just finishing your stone house on the Brandywine sampler and would love to stitch the SAL. Is there someplace on your blog where I could see an enlargement of the willow tree. I am using the reverse chain stitch and I am uncertain how to go about the tops of the trees. Thanks Teddy V.

    1. Hello Teddy,

  4. Hi Theresa,
