Smalls SAL – September Check-In

Welcome to the last Wednesday of September, stitchers! You’ve now made it through nine months of stitching smalls, and there are only three months left to go. I bet you are feeling pretty productive. I know I am.

This month I stitched Fire Dragon by Teresa Wentzler. It is the companion piece to Water Dragon by Jennifer Aikman-Smith of Dragon Dreams, and was taught as a class at the fall 2009 Creativ Festival.

Now that we are rounding the home stretch, I’ve been thinking about what to do next year. We’ve done ornaments and we’ve done smalls. And, if you are like me, you have a lot of little designs sitting around waiting to be finished. So, I thought I would ask all of you what you would like to do for a SAL next year.

What would you like to do for a SAL in 2015?

  • Let's keep stitching smalls! I have so many more to do. (52%, 27 Votes)
  • Let's do a finishing SAL. I've got lots of things that need to be finish finished. (29%, 15 Votes)
  • Let's go back to ornaments. Christmas, Easter, Halloween, and more! (15%, 8 Votes)
  • I think I'll just sit next year out, thanks. (4%, 2 Votes)

Total Voters: 52

Back to this month. πŸ˜‰ What did you stitch? Let me know by filling out the form below. Don’t forget, for every month you finish something and leave your link you get an entry into the end of the year draw. I’m still not 100% sure what the prize will consist of, but I promise it will be something stitchy.

October Check-In: The next check-in will take place on October 29th.

    Lovely finish!

    I got the date of the final Wednesday wrong and didn’t finish my biscornu. But I’ve had a good run so far, and I’ve noted October’s last Wednesay down properly ;D

    I like the colours of this fire dragon better than the water dragon – hot colours seem more appropriate

  8. Sandy Longan says:

    Beautiful dragons, Heather. Wish I could have vote for more than one in your poll. I love stitchin’ smalls, but have so many things to finish as well.

    Take Care & Happy Stitchin’
    Hugs, Sandy

    Oh poop! I had the date written down wrong, I was going to do a dual post with Theme-a-licious on the 30th instead of with the TUSAL on the 24th!

    I voted for general smalls for next year because then people can stitch for Hallowe’en or Christmas or dragons or whatever they like.

  13. Gorgeous fire dragon!! Someday I will get to that one, too!

    Hmm, I voted for ornaments, but now that I’m thinking about it, ornaments are small…they’re not technically “smalls”, but I’m cheating this year and counting them, so I’ll probably cheat next year, too. πŸ˜‰ I should have voted for finishing…I really need some “finishiative”!!!
