November 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.  Because I skipped October for Dark October, I completed two days in November.  As usual, the beads will be added when I stitch the third design:

stitched on 40 count white linen

I decided to use small charts for my Naughty November with Rachel and Tiff.  The first weekend I stitched three tiny Haunted Houses from the Stitchonomy SAL:

stitched over one on 28 count Moondust Murano from Crafty Kitten

The second weekend I started another Haunted House by the Cross Stitching Guild for the same piece:

The third weekend I went for Christmas and started and finished a design from the Gift of Stitching magazine.  Red Berries by Rosewood Manor from December 2006:

stitched on 32 count mid green linen

I wonder what I will start this weekend?

My evening project has been Just Nan's Owl Winder Pocket.  I have finished the central Owl Mandala and the lovely zigzag design for the front of the pocket.  Now I just have the design for the back of the pocket and to make the whole thing up:

Finally, some little Bubbles of Happiness from Lin Pulsion:

Jan, I think you are amazingly organised to keep up with all your starts/finishes and SALs When do you find time to blog and do your family ever see you??
I personally am planning to ramp up my community blogging commitment for 2021 and only hope to match you in stitching and blogging.
I look forward to taking part in the Advent Calendar and in one or 2 SAL's in 2021

I love all these! And you're almost done your most current set of 12 Days, will it be FFO'd by Christmas as well?

Elfie said...

I do love your 12 Days ornaments. Just one more and your set is complete. I always enjoy seeing all your projects - you stitch such varied and interesting designs.

Carol said...

Love the variety of things you choose to stitch, Jo! The JBW 12 Days is still my favorite, though--so tiny and detailed! Enjoy your week ahead ♥

Barb said...

Great smalls. I love all those bubbles of happiness! You are getting a great collection of designs of the 12 Days of Christmas!

So many sweet smalls, I really love Red Berries. Of course the Halloween houses, especially the newest one. Pretty bubbles, we certainly need some happy!

Mary's Thread said...

My favorite of your smalls is the red berries, that is so pretty. I think it was clever of JBW to put a deer for "Lords of Leaping" too! Your Bulles de Bonheur are so cheerful-love them! Thanks for joining the SAL!

Katie said...

Beautiful work on everything!

Rachel said...

Lovely smalls! Your Bubbles Of Happiness are definitely very cheerful, and everything is coming along nicely. It'll be lovely to see the 12 Days finished ready in time for Christmas. :)

I love seeing the bubbles every month, they are so cute and bright!

Busy as ever, Jo. In theory I have more time than you to stitch but I don't get anywhere near as much done as you.
It is always a joy to see what you're stitching.
