Happy Smalls SAL check-in day! I hope you’ve all found time to stitch up a little small for this month. If not, don’t worry! There is always next month, or even next year.
Yep, the Smalls SAL will be back for 2016! Yay! I had a lot of really nice emails telling me how much the SAL was appreciated for all the encouragement and motivation it provides. And, to be honest, that makes me feel great. I started the SAL as a way to make sure I had at least one little finish every month, and I am so glad other people find it helpful too. I’ll post info and sign-ups by the end of November or beginning of December.
Now, this month I did have a bit of a hard time getting a piece finished. (You may have noticed that I posted the check-in a little later than normal.) I actually finished up the stitching at the beginning of the month knowing that Thanksgiving and the Creativ Festival would cut into my stitching time. But, I didn’t actually get around to doing the finishing until last night. And then I had to wait for some glue to dry. Oops!
Here she is, though, and well worth the wait. The design is Miss Witchy Mouse from Just Nan. She is stitched on some random natural colour linen, which is a little lighter than the fabric called for in the pattern. I used the threads called for and followed the finishing directions included in the pattern. Miss Witchy turned out so cute!
So, what did you stitch this month? Please use the form near the bottom of the post to link to your finished small. (It will remain open to new entries until about midnight Eastern time on November 5th.) And, if you have some time, please visit some of the other participants.
November Check-In: Next month’s check-in will take place on November 25th. I believe that is the day before American Thanksgiving. But, don’t panic! The list will remain open to new entries for a week, just like normal. Enjoy your turkey, take a break, and post when you can..
