Smalls SAL 2018_February Update
Hmmm! Also just getting my February Smalls SAL post in by the skin of my teeth this month as well!
Although I do have a good excuse for being behind - our building project has started! Woo Hoo! Maybe by Christmas but certainly by the end of next Jan, we should have the first of the two houses (which is rather confusedly called House 2) we are building on our existing block (we will eventually be pulling our house down to make way for a new house) finished and ready to move into whilst House 1 (our dream home) is being built!!!! Exciting times and lots to do, cleaning out twenty years of seven people's junk/detritus/belongings/memories!
Anyway, onto the stitching.... I have four Smalls finishes this month.
1. First up is "Warm Hands, Warm Heart", which is the January Ornament for the JCS Christmas Ornie FB SAL - The Little Stitcher, p. 52 from JCS Christmas Ornie Magazine.
I do love this spotty fabric for Christmas ornies.
2. Next is Love Never Fails which I stitched for The Secret Stitching Sweetheart Blog Hop and also for the Needlecraft Haven's monthly challenge - although I was a fail on this as I forgot to send my pic to Christine! Too much going on here - Aaagghh!
Love Never Fails
The Primitive Hare Freebie
Over-dyed lilac linen
Changes: beaded the word "Love" and changed the key to white
Pink floss is CC Cerise
I picked up Santa's Sleigh Ride by JBW Designs as a Friday Frolics piece a couple of weeks ago. This was also for my Rotation Relay for the Winter Olympics for WIPocalypse SAL (on FB). I 'm very happy to say this is now a finish, too.
4. My fourth and final Happy Dance for this month's Small's SAL is this very cute design by Paola Gattiblu, "Proverbi 4". This was the Friday Frolic piece that I chose for last Friday's FF.
This is the companion piece to Proverbi 3 (you can see the two pieces together if you scroll down).
The saying "Gatto ci cova" means "The cat is hatching" ie up to something no good! You can read more about it here.
