One SAL down and another to start

Well I have the C Mon Monde SAL finished and I'm all ready to start the Parisian Mandela from Chatelaine Designs on Dec. 1.
I've decided to finish this design into a pillow which I will do this weekend and then I'll post a picture of it.  I don't have a Christmas pillow and I thought this design would be perfect.
Now I'm onto 2 more Christmas for my grandsons and another for Jenn and her husband.  They are pretty simple designs, which I designed, so they shouldn't take long at all.  I'll post them and the finished pillow later this week.
After I'm finished with them, it onto a sampler I'm dieing to start.  Remember this:
This was designed by Jardin Prive of my favorites....and I have the fabric and threads all picked out for it.  Yum!!!!
Well back to work and I hope everyone is having a great Wednesday and that you all are able to get at least a few stitches in today.
Blessings as always,
P.S.  This is a picture of the Parisian Mandela incase you haven't seen it.

Hi Barbara, I am doing this SAL, too - yours is so lovely. It makes me want to do it in another colourway now - maybe a pair?

Your Parisian Mandela is gorgeous, too. Who are you doing the SAL with?
