Smalls SAL – February 2018 Check-In

Hello, Smalls Stitchers! I don’t know about you, but I sure am ready to see the end of this winter. January felt like it was actually five months long, and now February can’t decide if it wants to cover us in snow or drown us in rain. Bring on the warm and sunny weather!

Regardless of what month it is, or what the weather is doing outside, it almost always the perfect weather for stitching. Like many of you, I stitch for all sorts of holidays throughout the year. My focus piece right now is for Halloween, and my small this month was another Christmas ornament.

Christmas Trees, designed by Kathrin Ellison of Gitta’s

Just like last month, I’ve stitched another little chart from Kathrin Ellison of Gitta’s, a lovely needlework store located in Mississauga (one of the cities next to Toronto; they all kind of run together around here). It is stitched on super cute polka-dot fabric using Anchor threads (not my favourite) and Rainbow Gallery Treasure Braid. Like last month, I meant to finish it into an ornament, but somehow it is already the last Friday of February. I always forget how fast February goes by!

What did you stitch this month? A Valentine for your sweetie? Something for Easter, Halloween, or Christmas? A dragon, a bird, or maybe some cheerful flowers? Head down towards the end of this post to leave a link to your finish for this month. Please be sure to use the permalink for your blog post. Also, please remember to use a picture of your small as your thumbnail.

The link list will remain open to new entries until about midnight Eastern time on Friday, March 2nd.

Next Month

The next check-in will take place on Friday, March 30, 2018.
