Smalls SAL 2018_March and April Update

Boy, have the past two months whizzed by but do I have a swag of Smalls to show you in this (late - sorry!) update.

Happy Dances all around!

... and here they all are, in no particular order ... ...

Witch's Kitchen, a freebie by The Primitive Hare

Two colour ways of Alphabet Cat by JBW Designs

Party Tarts
Plum Street Samplers
28 ct linen
Pattern and DMC floss given to me by dear Sarah

Democratic Donkey

Republican Elephant

Glory to God by Knotted Tree NeedleArt from Just CrossStitch Christmas Ornament magazine 2015.

This was stitched on 32 ct Mocha linen and I totally chose my own colourway using over-dyed threads.

Merry and White by Scissor Tail Designs...

Proverbi #4 by Paola Gattiblu

Little Lamb 
Spring Bouquet Collection
Mill Hill
Unknown over-dyed plum linen
Kit given to me by dear Sarah 

Balanced on an egg, a freebie by La Comtesse & Le pointe de croix

Very Merry by Lizzie Kate (JCS Christmas Ornie Mag 2017)

Frosty Friends by Blue Ribbon Designs from Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornaments 2017.

2015 2018 Years ago by WDC Needlework (from Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornaments 2015).  I made quite a few alterations to the original design but I am thrilled with how this turned out.

Fa La La by Little House Needleworks. I did change the right hand carol singer's dress to blue as I thought it would be prettier (and somehow their dresses got longer to hide their boots - but we won't talk about that - lol!)

Phew!  Quite a few, I hope that you are still with me!

Heather does not seem to have put up the April Link up post yet, once she does, I will add it to this post so that you can see what everyone else got up to.


P.S. I am having ANOTHER Girl's Nest Giveaway (#6), click on the pic below if you would like to enter.  Closes May 31st.

You have really been busy stitching all those delightful designs!! I guess if I have a favorite it might be the witch's kitchen design. But they are all so cute!
Kay said…
So much pretty stitching. My favourites are the sweet kittens and the sheep, this is so effective but doing all of those beads would have driven me nuts. x
So much to choose from. A beautiful selection of stitching.
Justine said…
Beautiful stitching Kaye, so many lovely things to see!
Vickie said…
Woo hoo! Good for you. I LOVE the patriotic donkey and elephant! :D
Dear Kay, you are a very active woman, I admire your embroidery!
I wish you a beautiful May, a lot of love!

Great projects.....your certainly have been busy. I think I may try to find the Witches lab project.
Linda said…
Wow Kaye. Congrats on all of the great finishes.

Carol said…
Oh, my--what a bunch of beautiful finishes, Kaye! The little chick you fully finished is adorable with the checked fabric and pretty pins :) And I love the beads you added to the sheep! A very productive month, I'd say!
Lesley said…
Gorgeous stitching,you have been very busy!
I like your Furio and Milo finishes:)
Shelly said…
You've been busy Kaye! They're all wonderful. It's time I started stitching JCS Christmas ornaments myself. I just need 5 more hours in the day!
Wow, you've had a busy couple of months. I think Furio and Milo are my two favourites this time.
Julie said…
A lot of happy stitching going on at your place. The little pillow is delightful.
Oh my goodness! You did all of them in two months??? You are amazing! I am so bad at cross stitch - I have one that I started, ahem, maybe 20 years ago... I should find it and finish it... :) xx

The Furio and Milo additions are great to this huge collection! Kitty Hatching is still my favorite though.
Mia said…
