July 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 7 on the 12 Days of Christmas:

stitched on 32 count Vintage Grain linen

Last month I showed you the start for Floral Sunshine and here's the finish:

stitched on 32 count Antique White linen

I even attached the butterfly charm straight away:



Next task is to scrapbook this one and some previous finishes.  I had a little bit of a finishing splurge last month and here are the results:




Of course, finishing a small means I start the next one.  This is Butterfly Bouquet stitched on 32 count pink linen:


Very pretty so far.  I'll be needing another butterfly charm for this so it's a good thing I bought a bag full!




Finally, the Summer Postcard Blog Hop has started!  The second card went out this evening to June of Butterfly Wings, so follow the link below and find out who sent the card to her.


If you want to take part, just email me a photo of something you 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.

Beautiful stitching, as usual. They are all pretty, but the 12 Days block is thecone that grabs my heart!

Love the colours in Floral Sunshine; probably my favourite of your Just Nan's to date. :)

I just love Just Nan ,all your stitching looks so beautiful.
There is always lots of work and bead work in her designs but that's what makes them so beautiful.
