Oh goody...we're starting. I'm in, just sent my e-mail.

There is a Pinkeep a Month SAL going on right now with three designs for Pinkeeps posted if anybody is interested. She also has a Pinkeep Tutorial posted on her blog. Le Grilles de Maryse.

Just popped back to get the dates on this so I can put it in my Calendar....Marie, I'm thinking your "assign a name date" and "mailing date" might be a little short on time. I don't usually begin to stitch the project until I get the partner's name so that I can look at their blog or wishlist or something and then chose a design that will go with that person's tastes. And I know I have a really hard time getting a pinkeep done from start to finish in 21 days.

Just for a point of reference: I'm currently working on a Pinkeep a Month SAL and it's taking me an average of 3 weeks (which is 21 days) to get a pinkeep finished. I am working on them as often as I can and really pushing myself to get them finished before the next design is released. Also, I live in a really rural area so if I have to do any shopping for my design it could take longer -- I'm not driving 60 miles in to town for one skein of floss.

My point being...I think 21 days is slightly tight. I could do it and I'm sure there are others who could. But if shopping is required, or if the person is a little more on the "beginner" side you might be crowding their schedule and then they wouldn't be having lots of FUN FUN FUN.

So I guess, what I'm suggesting is, can (or should) we make it more like a month from "announce" date to "mail date". I think most projects can be completed in a month, but anything less than that might be hard for some stitchers.
