Smalls SAL Update


Once again I have completely ignored my blog for a month.  Thank Heavens for Heather at Stitching Lotus and her Smalls SAL or I would never write anything.  Speaking of Heather, I've been quite negligent in thanking her and giving her credit for hosting this SAL, so THANK YOU HEATHER!!!!!!!!!

Below are a few of the smalls I stitched this month.
 This is one of 4 geometric designs. I really like the pattern and wanted to give it a try.  I'm thinking of making all four, but changing the colors, maybe adding more blues.  They would make interesting pieces to send to WOCS to use for a man's walker bag.
This is for a male co-worker who loves beer.  I added the word "cheers" but am unhappy with the way it looks. I centered it over the design, but it doesn't look centered so I'm either going to redo and center it just over the foam of the beer, or maybe put it on the foam itself.

I love this elephant.  The original pattern was for shades of light blue, but I switched to gray.   I'm making it for a friend to give his brother, who's nursery theme is elephants and colors are gray and yellow.  Just waiting for the baby to be born and will then add details and finish the card.

Last one of the month.  This is for my new manager.  Her birthday is next week and she usually paints her nails red, with the ring finger in gold.  The original pattern called for shades of pink and purple, but I just had to make the card more personal.

I continue to work on my larger WIP's and have a few other smalls I have started, but not yet finished.

Keep stitching!
