Smalls SAL – August 2018 Check-In

Hello, Smalls Stitchers! It is check-in time again. We are just at the tail end of summer break here, so I haven’t been stitching much. I’ve been enjoying spending time with my son and trying to cherish every moment. He is growing up so fast, and I know that soon he won’t want to spend much time with silly old mom.

I know I haven’t posted much for ages and ages. Some of that is due to burnout and some is due to self-care. I promise that regular posting will resume soon, the Smalls SAL will continue into 2019, and there may even be some changes to the blog including a new look and some on-going series. Stay tuned!

Summer is my least favourite season, and August is probably my least favourite month. So, to help me get through it, I focused on my favourite holiday: Halloween! This month I stitched Witchy’s Sister Mouse from Just Nan.

Witchy’s Sister Mouse designed by Just Nan

I used DMC as per the chart but stitched her on light brown evenweave rather than the called for grey. (Believe it or not, but I don’t have any grey in my stash!) I stitched Miss Witchy way back in October 2015, so I’m sure she is happy to finally have some company.

What did you stitch this month? Are you working on Halloween or Christmas? Maybe something for back to school? I can’t wait to see. Head down towards the bottom of this post and leave a link to your finished small. For every month you share an finish you will get one entry into the end of the year draw.

The link list will remain open to new entries until about midnight Eastern time on September 7th.

Next Month

The next Smalls SAL check-in will be posted on Friday, September 28th.

Thank you again, so much, for stitching along with me. I can’t wait to see your smalls.

    I just adore your little Halloween mouse! It’s good to see you back. I’m sorry I missed all the posts for April, May and June when you put them up. I did have finishes but I was away for most of July and August. Looking forward to seeing everyone’s finishes for the month.

    Such a lovely small Halloween piece. Summer is my least fav season too. Well you can’t blame when the temp are 120 deg F in summer 😣

  6. You never have to apologise for looking after yourself. Your mouse is gorgeous!

    I’m so glad to hear you are going to continue the SAL. I really enjoy it a lot and already have next years set of monthly pieces picked out. Can’t wait! I appreciate the time it takes for you to host this. I love the little mouse you made. Beautiful! I agree. Summer is horrible. Especially this year. It’s been too darn hot!
