Pumpkin Passport SAL - Weekend 1!

Good evening everyone!

I hope you are all well, rather cold here the past few days so I hope the rest of you are keeping warm.

The past weekend the adventures around the world began with the Frosted Pumpkin mystery SAL, with the first part arriving in my mail box on Saturday Morning.

As expected the first part is the largest including the central wording and borders along with the January square.

Here is the progress I have so far...


I am pleased with the amount I managed to get done! My only aim now is to get the first square done before the end of January so I am ready once the second part arrives. The first destination is London - so that Blue blob you see is the start of the River Thames outside the Houses of Parliament.

I'm currently thinking I am going to work on Vault Boy and Girl during the week and pick this up at the weekends. Hopefully this will work out and give me time to get each block done in time.

Is anyone else doing this SAL this year?

    1. Yes, I am looking forward to see where we will be going next month - they have said somewhere romantic...so my guess would be Paris perhaps?

  8. I am but just waiting on fabric, I think the second part will come out before my fabric but that's because I left finding a fabric late.

  10. I too loved Frosted Pumpkin charts -- It's a great success story as well. I think you made a great start - Only one Small Sal for me this year. It's difficult not to join more
