March's Small Smalls Update

Stitching Lotus Ornament SAL
The Smalls SAL is hosted by Heather from Stitching Lotus

This year I am going to have two monthly challenges:

1. The Primitive Hare Hallowe'en Cubes SAL
2. The Hallowe'en Ornie SAL themed blog.

I completed the first L from the Hallowe'en Cubes earlier this month:

Stitched on 32count Vintage Grain Linen

Because I have been focusing on my SOS piece I haven't stitched the March Ornie yet.  But I have six days left this month so there's plenty of time!

I have worked four out of five days so far this week so my stitching time is waaaaaaay down on usual.  I didn't even pick up Satsuma Street last night so I am planning on dedicating Thursday to that one this week.  The good news is that with the Easter holidays coming up I only have one day of work between now and the 15th April!  So expect some good picture-filled posts next month.

Finally, I saw this project on the Mr X-Stitch blog recently:


January 2015

The artist embroiders one square every day inspired by the weather that day.  I have seen scarfs with one row knitted every day in a colour relating to the temperature but never anything quite like this!  Each block is only 1.25 inch square but so detailed.  I love it!  I am looking forward to seeing how this progresses through the Summer into Autumn.

Love the block a day, your L is a lovely stitch.
I wish I had four out of five days to work out, maybe when I retire in oct.

I love your L piece and am looking forward to seeing the rest of the letters emerge. Thank you for posting the link to the item about the Calendar Project. After reading it I started following the artist on Instagram so I can see her daily progress

Letter 'L' looks great! I liked the calender idea :)
Crocheters do have such CALs where they crochet different blocks/squares and then join them together.

I love the crow! That square a day piece is spectacular, if I were to do something like that around here there would be a lot of plain grey squares

This little crow sitting on the pumpkin is so cute. A great finish. And isn't it gorgeous to see how creative some people are? I love that calendar project very much.
