Smalls SAL – July Check-In

It is Smalls SAL check-in time again!

SmallsSAL2014I don’t know about you, but for me July has just sped by. We are less than two weeks from our closing date on the new house, and there is so much left to be done! (We are moving a week after closing, so there is still time to do things. At least, that is what I am telling myself.) And with everything that is going on, including having the little man off school for the summer, I still managed to finish something.

This is Love from Enchanting Lair. I’ve shared work-in-progress pictures a couple of times over the past couple of months, and now I’ve finally managed to complete it. Okay, to be honest, it is about 95% done. I still need to attach the heart beads at the corners (which I will do after I wash and iron it), and each corner should also have one stitch in the Kreinik braid in each of its own corners. Unfortunately, I don’t have quite enough left to do those stitches. I do, however, have some of the proper braid packed away somewhere. So, when I add the beads I will do those stitches.

Love was stitched on Enchanting Lair’s hand-dyed fabric in colourway Medieval Rose (I think), using Needle Necessities (and some Threadworx), Kreinik braid, and Dinky Dyes silks.

What did you stitch this month? I can’t wait to see what everyone else stitched. Did you decide that it was Christmas in July and work on ornaments for your tree? Did you stitch flowers or maybe something summery? Please leave your link in the form below. And also try to visit some of the other participants too. We all love visitors!

Oh, and don’t forget: for each month that you finish a small and leave a link you get an entry into the end of the year draw. What is the prize? It’s a surprise! 😉

August Check-in: The next check-in date will be August 27. I can pretty much guarantee that I won’t have something done, but I’m going to try my hardest to make some progress on something!
