2017 Smalls SAL- July

Good morning,

Heather at The Stitching Lotus is hosting a smalls SAL.



I really enjoy this SAL.  I have been using this SAL to play catch-up to the 2017 Connie Gee SAL.  I completed March using Carrie's Creation in Baby Blue.

I also completed July using Carrie's Creation in Ruby.

My August goals is to finish April's (I am almost 1/2 way done) and to complete August when it comes out.  I ordered some fabric and floss and I plan on doing some blackwork ornaments for Christmas.

Thanks for looking and hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Mary

Here was June's progress:


Here is the completed project.  I stitched over 2700 stitches this month alone to complete this.  It was the most annoying project I have ever had but I am so proud to have it done.


Thank you Kerry for hosting this SAL.

Hope everyone has a great week and I will check back for my smalls SAL check-in.
Thanks for looking,
Mary
