Here Again So Soon!

I'm trying to do what I said I would and post more often with shorter posts so I don't get overhwlemed lol.
I've been really enjoying stitching on my Personalised Sampler by Nouveau Encore Designs this past few days, and tonight saw me finish page 5, which also means I've stitched right across the top and have reached the 25% mark! I really struggle with taking pics of this as without the flash you can't see the lovely variagation in the HDF silk, but with it looks quite stark. I will keep trying and maybe by the time I finish it I'll figure out how to take a good pic lol.I've now kitted up LHN's Winter Band Sampler and am ready for the SAL Sally and I are doing beginning on 2nd Feb. I'm going to be using the recommended DMC but have chosen an unknown 28ct evenweave in pale blue which I liked when I did a floss toss. Only thing is I'm not a lover of 2x2 since my addiction to 1x2 on 40ct began last year, but I wasn't happy with the floss toss on any of my 40ct fabrics so I had to make a decision and the blue fabric won. Just hoping that I will still enjoy stitching it.
So I have two days stitching before the SAL begins, and not sure what to stitch on?! I think I may put a few more stitches into A Very Merry Spring, and might also bring Cabin out again for an hour or so. I decided that even if I only do an hour a week on it, with a bit of luck it might get me back into it and if not it's still progress, no matter how little. I think Sally may be joining me and doing the same with Guardian so it will be fun to have some company.
Til next time!

Lovely progress on your stitching. Looking forward to seeing your SAL with Sally especially with the blue fabric as I have both of these patterns which I hope to stitch sometime this year.
