Smalls post and belated TUSAL report.....

Heather, of Stitching Lotus, is the host of our monthly Smalls SAL.  If you haven't been following her blog, you should!  She does the most amazing KNITTED SOCKS that I am soooo envious of!  One day I hope to master knitting socks besides xstitching and sewing.  But I love her smalls that she does each month and you can click on everyone else's link who are participating in this SAL.  You never know what blog you may come across that inspires you to follow them.

As most of you know I'm using my JN Ornamental Advent as my main monthly small SAL.  It's great and each one is small.  I managed to accomplish a goal of mine and get 3 days stitched up for this month!  YEAH ME!!!!  Here are my Days 9-11!

I am hoping to get 3 days done each month and maybe 4 if some months allow it.  Then I would be WAY AHEAD of schedule so it would allow me time for finishing before December arrives!!!

I also accomplished stitching up SB Little Eggs Pincushion.  No....I have not done the finishing work for the pincushion .......just the stitching for it.  This was such a fun one to stitch, and I managed to get this one done in 2 days! 

Now for my belated TUSAL report. 

Sharon, of It's Daffycat, is our host for this exchange!  You must pop on over to see what she has going on her blog besides or TUSAL reporting.  She is awesome too and I love seeing what she has going!!

I was going to post my TUSAL report the day we were supposed to, but I was taking our daughter back to college after she'd spent her Spring Break week with us!  We had such a fun time and I managed to get her Easter dress sewn while she was here.  I just didn't have time to take the pictures and blog it all before leaving to drive her back home.  Thank goodness we are close enough to drive to get her.  I am LOVING this!!!  I have gotten to see her way more than our last duty station.

Anyway, here are my ORTs both in the little tin I use to catch them in sometimes and also my ORTs jar that I dumped them all into.  It's getting pretty full already!!!  WOOHOO  Maybe next month I'll photograph my ORTs in my little ORTs catcher that my friend Janet made for me!!!

After coming back from taking our daughter home, I got busy and sewed up my Easter dress yesterday (Tuesday).  YEAH!!!!  It's all done, and I'm not sewing in the hem the Saturday before Easter like I've done before.  haha  Yes.....that has happened once or twice...maybe 3X.  LOL

I hope to have one more finish for the month of March.  I'm working really hard on it to get it done so be sure to check back in the next few days to see if I've managed to get this other little project finished stitching!  I'll keep it a secret for now. 

Happy Stitching!
