Welcome to a New Member!

 Please welcome a new member to our wonderful group:


and here is some background to Carissa:

1.   How did you hear about the SAL blog? - Through an Australian Cross Stitch Facebook group (Cross stich Australia or Cross Stictch Addicts - sorry I cannot remember which one as I am a member of both). Some one posted the Big list of Cross Stich SAL page -

2.   What is your stitching story/journey? 
I have been cross stitching since I was a teenager. I have recently had a renewed drive to do cross stich and make usefully items out of them for gifts and potentially  in a year or so, go to some of the local markets as a staller holder (I want to be sustainable with the craft - make enough to cover materials) 

3.   Where do you live (roughly ie country and/or state)?  
Queensland, Australia

4.   Do you have a blog? If so, what is it called?

5.   Are you on Facebook (FB) or Instagram (IG), if so, are you willing to share your username? 
Both, but mainly use Facebook - just my email address

6.   Name two or three of your favourite designers. 
 I have not landed on one - for so long my mum has just got me various kits (bless her) that I am still working my way through. I try to pick patterns or kits by the picture not the designer. One day I want to do some of my own designs.

7.   Why do you want to join the SAL blog? 
So that I can get in a routine of the small Christmas items, and know that others are on the same journey. It will be great to see others works and get and share ideas

Welcome, Carissa, I am sure that you will have a fun time with this SAL.

Welcome Carissa! I live on the other side of the world in Pennsylvania USA. I love how our love of stitching connects us. Can't wait to see what you are stitching.
