September Smalls Post.....
Heather from Stitching Lotus is our host each month for our Smalls SAL. Be sure to click on her blog link to see what everyone has been up to stitching for Smalls!
I had quite a few smalls to do the "final finishing" on so I made sure to get those done. So let's get started with the pictures!
This is Just Nan True Blue. It has been stitched a while and I have had the frame laid out on my cutting table just waiting for it to be framed up. However, when I do my "finishing" work on my pieces, I don't like to be interrupted so I had had it just laying there waiting patiently for me to finish. I have been gone a lot here and there off and on all year long which is another reason why my projects weren't getting "finished" totally.
These are my parent's small ornaments for this year. The angel is for my mom and Santa is for my dad.
This PS 2000 Santa was one I had stitchd with Janet back in May of this year. However, my cord maker had decided to break at that time so my poor Santa was all stuffed and just waiting for the cording to be made. Yes I know I could have made it by hand by twisting it, but honestly I am lazy on that chore when I can have a small tool to make it for me. So I just waited to finish him til I had ordered a new cord maker.
The last ornament is one that I make for my Knoxville, TN Krispy Kreme guy whom I always go see when I am in town visiting family. He's become like family to my family so he now gets an ornament each year!! This is MBT Merry Christmas To You from the 2016 JCS ornament magazine. This was stitched on 32ct white Belfast linen using Hand Dyed Fibers in premium. The colors were Perfect Red 6209, Exampler Gilded Cage, and Willow Withies 3229.
That's all I have to share for this month.
