This SAL is all about what you want to see on the blog. I asked for suggestions for themes and then put them up to the members of the IHSW Group on FB to vote for their choice. Now we are working through the choices. This is what has been chosen:

The People Chose Pets
July - Pets
August - Outer Space
September - Sea Creatures
I know a lot of bloggers have pets, they feature quite often on blogs, possibly more than children do because they are less likely to object to being talked about online!
We don't have any at the moment but if we did it would be a cat. Both my family and my husband's family had cats when we were growing up. As well as the usual collection of rodents and goldfish. We did have a dog for a while who was part guard-dog, part nursemaid and part dopey creature who loved the sound of the cine-camera so every film has her tail in it! She got out one day, met the dogs over the road and had 8 part-doberman puppies who were adorable with huge feet!
Here's a favourite photo of me holding our kittens, I remember this moment very clearly. I was about 3 or 4 and those kittens were wriggly!
So it's probably not a surprise to learn that most of my pet stitching is cat based!
This gorgeous kitten design is called Max's Moon and was a Bucilla kit:
This was another kit and features a Lesley Anne Ivory design:
This gorgeous pair of cats are looking down at a design from Tra-La-La which was sent off to be made into a quilt for the Cats Protection League:
And just to prove it's not all cats here, this one is a guinea pig based on the colours of my son's favourite toy when he was little:
And now it's over to you. All you have to do is make a post on the theme of Series of Pets, mention The People's Choice SAL (you can copy the picture I used at the top of this post and in my side bar) and my blog. Please link up using the URL of the actual blog post, not the home page of your blog. I look forward to seeing what you all post.
Finally, I need your suggestions for the next poll. Anything, no matter how obscure, weird or random will go into the poll. Keep the theme suggestions to a single word or two - so you could have Elephants, or Green, or Holidays, or Warmth etc. Really anything which could be illustrated in cross stitch.
