Summer is drawing to a close here in the Northern Hemisphere while those of you in the Southern Hemisphere are wrapping up your winter and looking forward to spring. The Olympics are winding down as well, and despite some of the controversies, I hope you've been enjoying them.
But don't forget - this weekend is our SAL weekend, so get out those ornaments to stitch. And if you're at a loss or can't make a decision, check out the piles of freebies listed in the right hand side bar. The current month's themes are listed, as well as links to all the archived themes. (And remember, you're not obligated to stitch the themes or the freebies. They're provided as options).
We also have several new members whose blogs have been added to our Contributors section, so if you haven't checked them out lately, stop by and have a browse through our listing.
