Smalls SAL – July 2015 Check-In

Welcome, Smalls Stitchers! It is finally the last Wednesday of the month, meaning it is time to share the smalls you’ve stitched.


I’m sure you’ve seen all kinds of “Christmas in July” sales and whatnot around this month. Even Songza has their Christmas playlists up on the front page. And, to keep with the Christmas in July theme, I stitched a Santa.

The design is MacSanta from the Olde Time Santa kit series put out by Yarn Tree. The kit included perforated paper, loss, the brass charm and beads. He was fun to stitch and worked up pretty quickly in spite of his size (approx. 6″ tall). I haven’t decided if I will keep him for myself or gift it to my mom’s friend who is from Scotland.

    Unfortunately I have absolutely nothing to show. I started stitching a small while we were camping, but it is in lock down inside our pop-up trailer and won’t be released until the weekend.

    Hugs, Sandy

    I chose a Sandy Cozzolino santa as my small for this month too, but after a week of long stitching hours, I’m still not done–nevermind the beading! I did MacSanta for the dude many years ago. I enjoy stitching all these guys! 🙂
