September Smalls SAL


Happy early Thursday. Yes, I know it isn't really Thursday, but the days have a way of getting away from me and I figured I'd write my September Smalls SAL post while I had a few minutes of down time.  Thanks, as always, to Heather at Stitching Lotus for hosting this SAL.

Despite  working full time and attending at least 2 high school soccer games and 1 football game every week, I managed to finish quite a few projects.

This is from Artecy Christmas Motifs 5. I finished the same pattern in red last month.

The next several designs are from the kit, Bucilla 30 Mini Christmas Ornaments







Another pattern from the book 1000 Cross Stitch Mini Motifs by Sharon Welch

Birthday  card for a co-worker, pattern is a freebie by Sullivan's

Fancy Dachshund by Daily Cross Stitch.  The pattern has three dogs, but I only stitched one.  This will be used on a card for my sister-in-law.

Two versions of the same pattern from Alita Designs.  Different material, different colors and some beads just for fun.


Another pattern from the book 1000 Cross Stitch Mini Motifs by Sharon Welch.  This was a birthday card for a co-worker.

Birthday card for a friend.  This is the same pattern I used earlier in the year, but I changed the center words.

The below is from Cross Stitch Crazy  Oct. 2012 and was going to be used as part of a birthday present for sister-in-law but I changed what I am giving her so I will probably put it on a card instead.

I might have a couple of other small finishes as a couple more co-workers are expecting babies this week, but since there's a soccer game tomorrow night and a football game Friday night, I really doubt it.

Happy stitching!


August Catch up


So I had the best of intentions in posting the rest of my August finishes over Labor Day weekend.  I even took an extra day off to decompress after open enrollment, but did I ever write that post?     No, I did not.

Well, better late than never so below are the rest of my August finishes.

 Two sympathy cards, designed by me.

Bear in a teacup from the book 1000 Mini Cross Stitch Motifs by Sharon Welch

What will be a set of wine glass charms from World of Cross Stitch magazine #221

The below three are from Artecy Christmas Motifs 4 and 5.  The candle and star are from 4 and the red ornament is from 5.

Finish on a baby card for a co-worker.

And all 12 of the below Lizzie Kate patterns. I do not know how I am going to finish these. I may turn them into another calendar, or I may turn them into blocks. Time will tell.






So lots of stitching in August.

Happy Fall,
