September Smalls


The Smalls SAL is hosted by Mary's Thread

This year my Smalls will be my JBW 12 Days of Christmas ornaments which I started on Boxing Day 2019 for the 12 Days of Stitchmas.  I completed the Ninth Day in September: 

stitched on 40 count White linen, 1 over 2

I finished a Just Nan small, Jasmine Mix:

stitched on 32 count Vintage Country Mocha

I am catching up on the weekly SAL from the Lin Pulsion blog entitled Bulles de Bonheur or Bubbles of Happiness.  I have been saving all the charts while I decided how I wanted to stitch them.  In the end, I decided over 1 on 25 count and using rainbow colours:

stitched over one on 25 count white evenweave

This small was for Aimetu Clare's Christmas Tree.  Her theme this year is "Flowers".   This is Amaryllis by Moss Creek Designs:

stitched over one on 28 count white evenweave

For the last Smalls post I noted that my Just Cross Stitch Hallowe'en Special had arrived that day.  It's a great issue and I have one finish and one WIP already.

This is the finish - Downdraft by Turquoise Graphics & Design:

stitched on 32 count Platinum linen

And this is the WIP - Mosaic Halloween by Twisted Willow Designs:

stitched on 32 count Platinum linen

Finally, there will be a Hallowe'en Trick or Treat Blog Hop as usual this year. I am sure you all know how it works but for those who need a reminder - here's a link to last year's

If you want to take part, just leave a comment here or email me if you are a "no reply" person. I need an email address for you to take part in this hop.

Jo, I love the Nine Ladies Dancing! So pretty! And your Jasmine Mix from JN is superb. I also really like your color choices on the Bulles de Bonheur! I need to get mine out again! I'm way behind! Count me in on the Trick or Treating this year! Thanks for joining the SAL this month!

Very nice smalls this month. I also just received my JCS Halloween issue so maybe I'll find one to stitch for your blog hop. If not, I have some already stitched from previous years.

I would be delighted to participate in the Halloween hop again this year, I am stitching my little Halloween stitch now.

Love the happy little bubbles. There's a lovely autumnal feeling to all of the smalls here. Count me in for the Halloween hop, I found just the thing to stitch for it.

Katie said...

Beautiful work on everything. Please count me in for the Halloween blog hop.

I stitched Downdraft, too! I'm edge-stitching the final ornament while supervising my oldest's schooling. I like the colors and sparkling beads you chose.

Christine said...

I really like that Hallowe'en piece, it's got a kind of Clarice Cliff feel to it.
Please signe me up for the blog hop

Nice mix of smalls. I did my Jasmine Mix on the called for but I really like it on the Vintage Country Mocha. The colors in the Twisted Willow Designs piece are my favorites.
