June Smalls SAL


Happy last day of June.  This year has gone by so amazingly fast.  It seems like school just got out and in 5 weeks or so, my "baby" will be a senior in high school.

On to stitchy goodness.  Thanks, as always to Heather at Stitching Lotus, for sponsoring the Smalls SAL.  I enjoy looking at everyone's posts to see what they have been doing.  The creativity does my soul good.

This month I focused on getting the Flip it Bits from Lizzie Kate completed.  I was able to get 9 months done and if I were posting this tomorrow, instead of today, I'd probably have March done.




I also finished the monograms that will be used as gift tags for Christmas presents for my in-laws

And a couple of birthday cards for co-workers.

I also made a couple of small inspirational magnets for some co-workers/ friends.

I'm still participating in the Debbie's Ultimate Crazy January/ February Challenge, and have 183 starts for the year, with 95 of them finished.  I'm not sure if I can have a new start  every day for the year, but I know I can get through Sept. 1.  A large portion of my current unfinished starts will be Christmas cards so my number of finishes will go up as I get closer to Christmas.

Have a great July 4th everyone,

Updated finishes


June 1st??????????  Seriously, where has the year gone?

As mentioned in yesterday's blog, I had to turn three stitched projects into cards last night.

Darling Daffodil freebie from World of Cross Stitching which, for some reason, loaded upside down. Well, it's rainy and kind of yucky outside, so maybe the daffodil is feeling a little gloomy?
Green birthday blackwork.  Picture is a little blurry but I like the combination of the green papers as background.  This one may have to go on my Etsy shop.

And last but not least, the going away card for a co-worker.  A little difficult to choose paper because of the minty green floss, but I think it turned out ok.

Happy rainy Wednesday!
