Smalls SAL – August 2015 Check-In

Hello, Smalls Stitchers! The last Wednesday of the month is here. Yay! I love getting to share my small and getting to see all of yours.2015SmallsSALWe’ve had a pretty strange month way up here. There were days (like yesterday and today) where it is very clear that fall is just around the corner, and other days (like last week) where it is so hot that there isn’t anything to do but sit inside and enjoy the air conditioning. I’m sure it is no surprise that I enjoy the cool days. I spend the end of August examining the trees for signs of fall, and I rejoice when I see that the sumac has started to turn. So, of course, I decided to focus on fall-themed smalls again this month.

Wendy's Cat and Haunted Zone

Wendy’s Cat and Haunted Zone

These are both from this year’s Mill Hill Autumn Treasures series: Wendy’s Cat and Haunted Zone. I made the cord with the help of my little man (when, oh when will school start again?!) and leftover floss from the kits.

So, what did you stitch this month? Does your stitching still reflect the warm weather (or cold, depending on where you are)? Have you started stitching for Christmas already? Maybe back-to-school stitching was under your needle this month. I can’t wait to see! Use the form near the end of this post to link to your post. The list will close to new entries at about midnight September 1st Eastern time.

Next month: The September check-in will take place on the 30th. You’ve got piles of time to get stitching!

    Lovely spooky stitching! I’ve been doing a mixture this month; my two usual spooky stitches and a Christmas one as well.

    Cute ornaments! I’ve just been chugging along on my large WIP 🙂

  7. I am just waiting for fall! It is my absolute favorite time of year in these mountains. The color this year should be wonderful. I have a little Mill Hill kit, maybe I’ll get it done to join the small stitching next month.

    Nice autumn ornaments, especially I like a cat.
    Here in Finland, has been in the last few weeks quite warm yet, but now the weather has turned cooler. I look already for a colorful autumn.
