Christmas Smalls finishes (mostly stitched as part of the Christmas Ornie SAL).... but let's start with my most recent Christmas finish, one that I stitched just because .... Wee Santa 2016 by Heart in Hand
Now onto the belated Christmas Ornie SAL Smalls finishes:
June: Love Letters
from "Joyeux Noel"
28 ct Mocha Linen
My own choice of overdyed threads (as I had none of the suggested ones - lol)
July: Prairie Schooler Book #150 (snippet)
I am not overly thrilled with how it has turned out - not the design's fault but mine! I made an error somewhere near the start, didn't pick it up until it was way too late, so had to ditch the idea of a border and create this snow "hill" instead - now it is a bit of an odd shape - may have to make it a bell-shaped ornie, I think, when I Finish Finish it. Although, some other interesting shapes have been suggested to me, as well.
Prairie Schooler Book #150
28 ct Ivory linen
Suggested DMC floss

Samplers not forgotten
Fabric: Unknown 28ct

September: Xmas Tea....

Source: JCS Christmas Ornie Mag 2016
28 ct linen
Assorted floss from stash
It was a very sweet stitch.
"Crow on a Pumpkin"
Samplers Not Forgotten
JCS Halloween 2015 magazine
Using a mixture of my own choice of GAST, CC and WDW floss
I love the fact that the pumpkin is not orange! And I am thrilled with my use of CC Queen Bee for the border on the right instead of GAST Gold Leaf - it looks quite unusual.
Happy, Happy Happy!
So, I think that I may leave my Smalls SAL post there, as it is now the 3rd of October and despite my very best intentions, this Smalls SAL post is now late - lol!
You can find the check in for the Smalls SAL here, so please go see what everyone else got up to this month.
