June Smalls SAL

Stitching Lotus Ornament SAL

The Smalls SAL is hosted by Stitching Lotus

This year I will be showing my Hallowe'en and Christmas SAL partworks and any other Smalls I may stitch.

Happy Hallowe'en by Imaginating gained a green frog and a green lizard for Something Green:

Witches by Oberlin Sampler became Itches:

A Goose was a-laying in Joan Elliott's 12 Days of Christmas:

And I completed, not one, but TWO Just Nan ornies.  Here are Christmas Hearts and Victorian Rose:

  Just Nan Victorian Rose

Here's where I am on Day 13 of the next Just Nan, Royal Blossoms:

And Day 181 of Spring in the Square, also by Just Nan:

I also made a card for a friend's wedding, the design is by Stitchrovia:

I also made some "small" progress on each of my WIPs and UFOs for The Longest Day Marathon:

That would actually make a good competition - spot the design!

Over to Pie; this month my focus piece was the Discworld Mappe with ten days of stitching.  It would have been a full fortnight but I fitted in my marathon and the wedding card.

Spending-wise, it's been a good month for Stitch from Stash.  

CS Sub £8.72
Crazy sub £3.00
John Lewis £20.00
Total £31.72

But magazine subscriptions are exempt and I used gift vouchers to buy the fabric so a zero SFS spend.  The first part of SFS has finished now and I have plenty of credit which is nice.  In "real" temrs I have spent £ 116.80 over six months which is just under £20 a month.  That does include gift money and magazine subscriptions.

Finally, we have a new Blogger of the Week, so don't forget to pop over and leave a comment.  This is our 19th Blogger of the Week and once we reach the half year mark (26) I will be doing a giveaway which will involve you having paid attention to the 26 featured bloggers.  You have been warned!

The Just Nan ornaments are so pretty. I could imagine a small tree with only the kind of pretty ornaments on it. x

Desiree Ehleiter said...

As always wonderful stitching. I love all your projects. I cannot believe how organized you are. If I had half your organization at work I would be unstoppable!

Julie said...

Lots of project progress. The JN ornaments are lovely.

Lot of pretty works, the goose is really nice, I love the colors, it gives a great looking. Love the French way you chose for showing your Just Nan ornies. ? They are the highlights of your exhibition we translate by "le clou de l'exposition" "the nail of the exhibition" (= to fix attention) ! Hugs

Haha, a new competition - spot the design. That would be a great idea.
