April Smalls SAL
The Smalls SAL is hosted by Stitching Lotus
This year I am showing my Just Nan 12 Days of Christmas blocks for the Smalls SAL and also my 30-a-day projects. All smalls also by Just Nan. It's a Nan-a-thon year!
Here is Block 4 on the 12 Days of Christmas:
Nan has decided to go for Crowing Roosters for her Four Calling Birds rather than the traditional Colly Birds, or Blackbirds. But they are nice and colourful and fit in well with the rest of the piece.
I completed the beading on Potpourri:
And just need a tiny flower charm to go in the centre to finish it off.
I fully finished Painted Lady for my scrapbook:
And continued to work on Charm Garden:
This is larger than most of the others so is taking longer.
Finally, I am planning to make 31 Just Nan starts for Stitch Maynia this year! I have sorted out my list of smalls and will start one each day and then continue to work on them one at a time for the next 3 years or so! It's a fun way to build up a selection of smalls. If anyone wants to join me in stitching any Just Nans please do. It doesn't have to be 31 starts, any Just Nan stitching counts.
Show your Nan-a-thon on your blog and email me a link so I don't miss it!
