November Smalls SAL

The Smalls SAL is hosted by Mary's Thread

The Smalls SAL post is always the last Friday of the month and was quite early in October so I hadn't quite finished all my smalls!

I hadn't even beaded my tree for the October Christmas Ornament and now I have it fully finished:

Sue Hillis Designs - Victorian Christmas Tree

I then started and finished the November Christmas Ornament which was to be chosen from the 2004 issue of Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament Special.  I chose my fourth Dragon Dreams design of the year.  This one "Never Too Big":

The berries are all French Knots and there is a lovely green metallic thread in his tail and head crest.

Here are all four Dragon Dreams designs together:

Hopefully I will get them all scrapbooked before the FFO Gallery post on the 10th December.

My next small is the current Word by Jessica Savage published in Cross Stitcher magazine each month.  I finished Imagine and Create:

Here are all four so far:

The next issue arrived today - the word is "Embrace".

I have nearly finished the Mirabilia 25th Anniversary Cameo so I'll show the photo from the WIPocalypse post.  I finished the frame and the top half of the vines, just the bottom half and the beads to go now.

Finally, I have sent out the emails for the Advent Calendar Blog Hop.  If you asked to join in and have NOT received an email with your date, please get in touch and I'll double check my list.

Wow! You have been really busy. Everything is just beautiful. I love the Victorian Christmas ornament and the Dragon Dreams are super cute.

Barb said...

What a nice collection of smalls.

Christine said...

Great finishes, I love how the words are turning out. I'm thinking I'll wait until there is the full set then pick my 6 favourites and make a cube

Rachel said...

Sweet smalls! I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks you are never too big to believe. The words are looking fantastic with all those bright colours. :)

Katie said...

Oh I love that cute dragon. Adorable. Great work on everything.

Thank you for joining the SAL! I love that bling-y Christmas tree but all your smalls are great, as usual!

That might be my favourite of the dragons so fat - what a cutie! Great job on the Cameo as well, you're almost there now.
