Smalls SAL – October 2017 Check-In

A very spooky hello to all you Smalls Stitchers! Welcome to the October Smalls SAL check-in post! (On the correct Friday this time! Sorry about last week’s mix-up.)

If all goes well, this post is going live while I am on a cruise in the Caribbean. (Don’t worry; the house isn’t empty. It never, ever is. Poor thing.) Today is an At Sea day, and I have very spotty, time-limited Internet access. Hopefully everything posts okay and there are no problems. If there are, please rest assured that I will fix things as soon as I’m back on dry land and have a reliable internet connection.

On to the finishes!

Batty Boris, designed by Just Nan

This month I stitched up Just Nan’s Batty Boris, and I even finished him! Amazing! He is stitched on a wee piece of grey fabric I found hiding in my stash, and I used the called for DMC threads and Kreinik braid. The beads, little orange button, curlicue, and banner were all included in the kit. I stitched the front of Boris as per the pattern, but instead of repeating his face on the back, I stitched like a true backside.

What did you stitch this month? Are we going to see a whole pile of Halloween finishes, or have you already moved on to Christmas? Does seasonal stitching not float your boat at all?  (See what I did there?) Head down toward the bottom of this post and share your finished small with us. Please be sure to use the permalink for your blog post and to use a picture of your finished small as your thumbnail.

The link list will remain open to new entries until about midnight Eastern time on November 3rd. So, you still have lots of time! And remember: for each month that you share a finished small you get one entry into the end of the year draw.

Next Month
The penultimate (don’t you just love that word?) Smalls SAL check-in will take place beginning Friday, November 24th. I think that is right in the middle of Thanksgiving weekend for you American stitchers, but don’t worry. The link list always remains open for at least one week so that everyone has time to add their links.

Happy stitching, my Smalls Stitcher friends! I’ll be thinking of you while I’m lying on beaches, seeing the sights, and eating great food. And I can’t wait to see what you’ve stitched this month.

    Another squeeze in month for me but I remembered I finished something that would qualify. Thanks for the push to keep them finishes up.

    Awww, I missed the link-up (for some reason, your blog never gets updated in my feed list…and I had in-laws visiting when your email came, so I made one of those mental notes that inevitably gets misplaced. Ah well). Lovely finishes, everyone!
