January - Small's SAL 2018 check-in

Hi y'all,

How are you doing?  I am doing great!  I have a finish to share with you but it isn't a small.  I guess if  you breakdown the 2 flowers I did into 2 smalls I can get away with it.  Right?  haha.  I am sure you don't mind me sharing this since I don't have anything else to show.

The lovely Heather at the stitchinglotus is again hosting the Smalls SAL and it is so much fun.  Here is a link to her blog in case you are interested.

Well as promised, I have completed the Season's in Chalk by Hands on Design "Summer" that was in the June 2016 JCS issue.  I dyed my own 28 ct Monaco and changed the color of the flowers from the original.  I decided to make it into a pillow.  I went to Hobby Lobby and bought a pillow form. I just need to get motivated to get behind the sewing machine. 

My conversion for the flowers were 791, 794, and 798.

I am currently working on a Sunflower biscornu for next month's finish.

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.

January Christmas Ornament

Hi y'all,

Hope you guys are safe and warm from this cold weather.  My kids have been home since last Friday.  Today is the first day we are going to get above freezing so hopefully some of the snow and ice will melt.

I am participating in the Christmas Ornament 2018 SAL that the wonderful Kaye at Kitten Stitching is hosting.  You can join at anytime and is a lot of fun.

This month's theme was Deck the Halls so I found this online and bought it.  It is called Deck the Halls by Little House Needlework.  I even rocked the french knots.  I think they kind of look bug eyed but hey I am keeping it at is.

So I will be back next Friday for the Smalls SAL 2018.  Not sure if I will get another small done but Summer by Hands on Design will be done today and I will look forward to showing you that next time.

Thanks for looking and for all the kind comments.
