Smalls SAL Check-in – May

Welcome to the Smalls SAL check-in for May. What’s the Smalls SAL? Simple: stitch a small and share it with everyone on the last Wednesday of the month. Then, head over here to leave a link to  your post.

SmallsSAL2014This month I worked on Teresa Wentzler’s Cutwork Compass Rose. It isn’t quite done; I think I was just a little bit too ambitious. Still, it looks so good, and I can’t wait to finish it up. I need to add some satin stitches to the NE, SE, SW, NW points (I’ve run out of the silk), beads for the letters inside the circles, and all the cutwork.

I probably won’t tackle the hardanger sections until after we are settled in our new house because my hardanger scissors have been packed away (and, to be honest, my nerves are a bit shot right now so I don’t trust myself to cut properly!). My stitchy friend Christine has finished and framed her’s, and if you click here you can see how beautiful it is when it is complete.

Next Check-in: The next check-in will be on June 25th. Hopefully I will be able to get something done in time, and I hope you do too.
