I am here to post a few smalls I have completed this week for the 2017 Smalls SAL hosted by Heather @ The Stitching Lotus.
Heather is hosting this SAL next year and you can join anytime. It is really a great motivational tool to get smalls done.
The 1st one I completed was Ho Ho Ho Santa from Prairie Schooler. It was in the 2014 JCS Ornament issue. I stitched it on Hand Dyed 18ct Chia Tea Aida by me and misc floss to match my fabric.
The bottom is a little messed up on the white but the stitching looks good so hopefully that overshadows my mistake.
The 2nd finish is called Swirly Hat by SanMan Originals and it was a design on the message board. Sadly, she has fallen ill and the message board hasn't returned but I still think about her and hope she is doing ok.
This is stitched on some old 18ct Aida.
The only difference is the first one has more grass and then I decided why do I need to stitch all of this grass? So I recharted it and think it looks ok.
Well that is all for me. I have been sick so haven't wanted to stitch anything big and with my sons and husband home until Wednesday, Jan, 3rd I know I won't get a lot of stitching done.
I hope you have a fun New Years and have loads of time to stitch.
