Smalls SAL - August



It's time for the update on the Smalls SAL, I posted my pics the other day when I posted my Stitch From Stash SAL. Some of you may have already seen it. For this month I stitched The Patchwork Garden Pincushion Ball by Twisted Oaks Designs. I stitched it with the recommended  fabrics and threads.

Not sure what I will grab to stitch next month, guess I had better be looking.

Stitch From Stash- August Report





Time to post my August update on the SFS SAL. There was a lot of temptation with the St.Charles market and I almost crumbled. Found a few but at the last minute decided not to click the complete order button. I still have alot of things to stitch and things in some of my magazines to stitch. We even had a bonus weekend for the market as well.
Anyway I didn't use the bonus nor spend any money this month. $0. Hubby will be happy.

I did stitch from my stash and completed the Patchwork Garden Pincushion Ball by Twisted Oaks Designs. It has been in my stash for a number of years all kitted up, don't know why I didn't do it before.

I stitched it withe the recommended fabrics and threads. One of the colors of linen I wasn't happy with, it wanted to ravel very badly.


Another finish is Blossoms & Blackbirds by Little House Needleworks.
It is stitched on 28ct. Lt. Mocha Cashel Linen and the recommended threads. I'm thinking of  finishing this into a cushion, will decide soon.

And I stitched a biscornu for a SAL on a Facebook group All About Smalls. A lady in the group designed this pattern, I will have to look up her name for credit.


Also continued working on my Mirabilia, and that's it for now.

Just Nan SAL







I'm late in posting my SAL fir July. I've had it done for a couple of weeks but it has been rather busy and slipped my mind. It needs pressing.
This Lady Scarlet's Journey. I'm not quite sure if I'll frame it or make it into a bellpull.
