June 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 6 on the 12 Days of Christmas:

stitched on 32 count Vintage Grain linen

Following on from the excitement of the 31 starts for Maynia, I completed 2 Just Nan smalls this month.

First was Honeysuckle Rose which hasn't got its charm yet:

 Then a nice quick stitch; Dragonfly Summer renamed Butterfly Summer as that was the charm I had:

A Just Nan Small finish means a new one is started - Floral Sunshine:

I am hoping to do some scrapbooking this weekend and get some of the older ones mounted and fully finished.  We shall see!

Finally, there will be a Summer Blog Hop this year.  I will be returning to the Postcard theme.

  • Each person emails me a photo of something they have stitched which is suitable as a postcard to a fellow stitcher along with a short message of the kind you write on a postcard. 

  • I will forward the photo to another participant who shows it on their blog.  

  • The photo can be anything Summer themed, beach themed, holiday themed, you get the idea!   

  • It can be a new piece or something from your archives.  

  • The Hop will run over the whole of the Summer with a few cards going out each week.  

  • Final deadline will be the end of August, just in time for Back to School!  

  • If you'd like to take part then leave a comment or send me an email.

Love all of your stitches Jo. I especially like how you added the butterfly charm and I think the wreath is so pretty.

Your butterfly fits perfectly on Dragonfly and suits it so well. Great choice.

Rachel said...

The Just Nan finishes are gorgeous! Glad to see you're continuing with the Smalls SAL postings too; any idea what's caused Heather's absence these last few months? :)

Katie said...

Another great check in. Beautiful progress. The butterfly charm works perfect on that piece.
