Hello, Smalls Stitcher! Welcome to the October check-in for the Smalls Stitch Along. If you are new, you can find all the information right here.
We are only a few days away from Halloween, one of my favourite days of the year. (To be honest, I can’t decide if I love Halloween or Christmas more.) So, of course I had to stitch something Halloween-y this month.
I stitched up Pumpkin Pocket, a limited edition kit from Lizzie*Kate. I stitched it using the fabric in the kit and DMC threads. The fabric and trim for finishing were also included in the it. I made a minor change to the “1” in the “31” within the O just because I thought the original looked a little odd.
As a little bonus, I also finally sewed up Lizzie*Kate’s Love Summer, the finish I shared as my August Smalls SAL check-in.
Speaking of check-in, you can do so using the form at the bottom of this post. Please be sure to leave the permalink for your check-in post, not the link for the main page of your blog. Also, please use a picture of your finish with your link.
The link list will stay open to new entries until about midnight Eastern time on November 4th, so you have piles of time to get something stitched and added to the list if you’ve forgotten. 😉
Next Month and Beyond
The next check-in will take place on Wednesday, November 30th. Note that the date is moving to the last Wednesday of the month just for November. This is because our American friends celebrate Thanksgiving on the last Thursday of November (the 25th this year), and I wanted to make sure that they had lots of time to get their stitching done and added to the list. We will return to the last Thursday of the month for December’s check-in.
And, after December? Well, that is up to you. Let me know if you would be interested in taking part in the Smalls SAL in 2017 by answering the poll question below. It will remain open for voting until midnight Eastern time on November 15th.
That’s it for this month, my stitchy friends. I can’t wait to see all your wonderful finishes for this month. Happy stitching!
