Last Smalls Post for 2015

Today is our last Smalls post for 2015!  Heather of Stitching Lotus is our host and I've already signed up to do this SAL again for 2016.  So if you are wondering how do I get those ornaments all done throughout the year, this little SAL helps keep me motivated in accomplishing those goals!!!

So for my last post, I would like to share some of my Smalls.  I can't show one as Kimberly has not gotten her present yet so that will be for January's post.

You have seen my mom and dad's ornaments "stitched" but not finished into the actual ornaments.  They are both a PS ornaments from the Summer and Winter chart.

The front and back of my dad's ornament.  I found the perfect fabric to match his design.

This is what I stitched for my mom.

Then I found 2 perfect ornaments to stitch up for my kids.  Grace fell in love with what I had stitched for her college roommate for Christmas so I hurriedly and restitched it for her a present.  It is a free cat chart from Happiness is Cross Stitching blog.

I found a Pokemon chart of Pikachu on Pinterest to stitch up for our son which I might add he was completely surprised!!!

I didn't finish DH's ornament to finish in time to give it to him "totally finished" for Christmas but I did finish stitching it during the days after Christmas.  This is LHN Town Church stitched on 32ct Natural Belfast as I thought the colors showed better on it.

And of course, my LHN Sweet Shop ornament did not get stitched but I hope to get it finished in January and FINISHED so that I can get it packed with all the other 2015 ornaments.  That's ok as it's mine and I would much rather have gotten the other ornaments finished first!

That's all I have to share for my Smalls post today.  I hope you have a very safe and Happy New Year and as always........HAPPY STITCHING!
