The fabulous Mary at www.marysthread.com is hosting this wonderful SAL for 2019. We check in the last Friday of the month and show all of our smalls. It is a ton of fun and I can't wait to see everyone's work tomorrow.
I thought I would get a jump on posting this today since I have a few things to show you.
First is 2 Stars and a Stag from Blue Ribbons Design. It is in the Aug 2018 JCS issue. I used the called for DMC colors on 32ct Lambswool Joblean. I accidentally made the border the darker green so I flipped the greens around. I love the darker green as the border.
Next, I finished Chilly Frillys from Little by Little Designs and was in the 2009 JCS ornament issue. I chose this because I participate in the Christmas Ornament SAL by Kaye at Kitten Stitching. This fulfills the January requirement.
I used the called for DMC threads on a scrap piece of 32ct Belfast linen.

I hope everyone had a fabulous holiday and start of 2019. I really can't complain. We didn't do anything special, but it was nice to have extra time with the boys and Bill. He didn't take the week off like he had planned but he still had two 4 day weekends so that was great. Weather has been strange, as it hasn't felt like winter, but unfortunately, it is not here to last. Winter will pay us a visit at the end of the week. Oh well, it was great while it lasted.
So Think Spring by Lizzie Kate is my last finish for 2018. I just had the chance to fully finish it yesterday and I love how it turned out. I hand-dyed some 14ct Aida and used DMC and hand-dyed floss from my stash. Now I only have Think Summer and Think Autumn and then the series will be done.
I do have some other things I have completed within the last month, I just need to ffo them. Hopefully, I will be back next week with another update.
Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day.
