Tis the Season SAL

I am new to cross stitch alongs.  My first stitich along (aka SAL) is a pattern from Blackbird Designs.  I started Labor Day weekend.  I have yet to iron or have it framed but the stitching is complete.  I changed a few colors and I changed the words at the bottom a bit as well.  

I am so pleased with the outcome and I plan to participate in more SALs.  In this project I utilized 18 count Aida hand dyed by Picture This Plus in the Sterling color.  I stitched for the first time with hand dyed floss and stitched one thread over one.  

The floss colors are Classic Colorworks Pea Pod.  The Gentle Art Forest Glade and Grecian Gold.  DMC 3852 for the bird beak.  Several colors of Weeks Due Works Palamino, Bark, Whitewash and my favorite color Turkish Red.  

I hope to have it framed and hanging this winter.
