Smalls SAL – May 2017 Check-In

Hello Smalls Stitchers! First, I’d like to apologize for getting this post up just a little bit late. It is around noon my time on check-in day, but I know for some of you it is already tomorrow! To be totally honest, I forgot it was the last Friday of the month. Where has May gone?

I’ve had another month where I haven’t stitched too month. I’ve gardened, read some good books, and spent some time outdoors. My poor stitching has languished! Thankfully, though, I did get my small done.

Merry Santa Kit, designed by Lizzie*Kate

This is Merry Santa Kit from Lizzie*Kate, a limited edition kit from 2015 (I think…). The kit included the linen, finishing fabric, and embellishments. I still need to add the buttons and little bell, and sew it all up into a bag, but the stitching is complete. I used DMC rather than overdyed thread since, honestly, I don’t want to buy eight skeins of fancy floss that I will only need a length or two from. 😉

My plan is to have him sewn up into a bag by earlier next week, and I will share him again when he is all done.

So, what did you stitch this month? Please head down towards the bottom of this post to add your link to the list. Please be sure to use the permalink for your blog post and a picture of your small as your thumbnail. If you run into any problems, please don’t hesitate to email me. I’m always happy to help out.

The link list will remain open to new entries until about midnight Eastern time on Friday, June 2nd. Update: The list will stay open until midnight Eastern on June 8th. So, you still have lots of time to add your link even if you aren’t quite finished yet. Remember: for each month that you share a finished small, you get one entry into the end of the year draw.

Next Month: The next Smalls SAL check-in will take place on Friday, June 30th. See you then!

Thanks again, very much, for stitching smalls along with me! I can’t wait to see what you’ve stitched.

    Santa looks great. I agree about the hand dyed threads. DMC variegated are just as good for many designs.
