January Smalls SAL......
Today, is our first Smalls SAL post for 2016!!! YEAH!!! I'm SOOOO HAPPY to have joined in this group again this year! It is so much fun plus it keeps me focused on getting those smalls of mine all stitched and hopefully for getting Christmas ornaments made earlier too!!! Heather of Stitching Lotus is our lovely moderator and host once again this year! Be sure to check out her blog at the link above and the others who are participating in our Smalls SAL group.
I've been busy this month. For my first smalls post I want to share Kimberly's birthday present. I stitched her a small design from BBD In Friendship's Way book and mounted it onto a box that I stained for her. I did not get the exact box that BBD had suggested getting from Hobby Lobby as they were out of of it. But I thought it turned out nicely. Kimberly says she is keeping her threads and scissors for her current project stored in it.
The second project I finished was JN Winter Spell Whimzi. I just LOVE stitching those whimzi's and I've almost gotten them all done. I'm not sure how many more I have left to finish but it's not many.
I am also trying to get some of my other stitched pieces ACTUALLY FINISHED to display in my house. Yesterday I finished JN Jingle Tin Topper. It's been stitched ever since it came out. Yes.....shame on me for not getting it totally finished and displayed before now.
I've also stitched up DD Valentine's Day present and finished it already but I can't show you yet. I found another small xstitch to stitch up for her so she'll get 2 stitched Valentine presents this year. I will be able to share those next month!!
