February Smalls 2019 Check-in

Hi Y'all,

Good afternoon y'all,

I cannot believe it is the end of the month.  Time for another check-in for the Smalls SAL hosted by Mary at Mary's Threads.

I don't have many smalls this month but that is ok.  I have been working on quite a few larger projects that I will update you on next week.

The first finish is February cupcake from the series A Year In Cupcakes by Durene Jones on Etsy.
I should have this ffo'd for the FFO SAL in a few weeks.

I used the called for colors on some 28ct Monaco fabric.  I just think it is so cute.

This next one I finished late last night.  I need to get a smaller needle to sew some beads for his eyes.  Again, I should have this completely ffo'd by the FFO SAL check in.

This is called Angel Kiss by The Cricket Collection.  It was in the 2008 JCS ornament issue.  I also did this for the Christmas Ornament SAL.  I used Hobby Lobby silver metallic thread.  It wasn't as brutal as I thought when I figured it all out.  I started using 2 strands but was bulky and shredding.  I started over using 1 strand and small lengths and it was more manageable.  I stitched it on 32ct white Lugana and called for DMC threads.

Lastly, I am not sure if it fits the criteria, however, it does come in parts that are released every 2 weeks.  I am dragging my heals with part 4, but it will get done by the end of next week.

Here is part 3 of Mimi's SAL.

With my old eyes, I mistook the symbol for the numbers 1 and 2, and I will eventually have to pull them out and use the darker thread like the number 3 but I will worry about that later.  I still love it; just a little upset at myself for the mistake.  Oh well, I found putting it on my phone and enlarging the pattern helps to read the symbols.

Anyway,  I just want to thank everyone for taking the time to visit my blog and to comment.  It makes my day.

Have a great weekend!

  2. Lovely Smalls, Mary. I could do with a cupcake like that right now! Good job you noticed the colour error on the big SAL before stitching too much! :)

  3. Nice February finishes. I really like the Mimi's SAL piece.

  4. The February cupcake is just adorable as is the kiss ornament. The SAL piece is so pretty. I've had my share of reading symbols wrong!
