Smalls SAL - May 2020

Most of my stitching this past month has been done in the evening as during the day I've been busy doing family history research. I sit down at the laptop for a short while in the afternoon and the next thing I know, it's dinner time!

However, I managed to 'finish' a couple of smalls. I stitched Peace and Love on my Little Sheep Virtues sampler. I still find this a relaxing project for the evenings.

Little Sheep Virtues - Little House Needleworks and
Sheep in the Meadow - Country Cottage Needleworks
Fabric: 40ct Zweigart Natural line
Threads: Recommended DMC and Weeks Dye Works threads

My second project was Shepherd's Bush All Seasons Scissor Fob. I love the colours and delicate look of this design. I still have to fully finish it but I'm getting there.

This was a kit so all fabric, threads and embellishments were included

Fully Finished Gallery SAL - May 2020

After reading Clare's post on her fully finished item (FFO), I decided that I would join in this month as I have one! Generally I'm slow to finish my stitching as something unless I have a reason for it, usually an exchange or gift.
The Fully Finished Gallery SAL is hosted by Rachel, Ten Hour Stitcher and it is an opportunity to show off our FFO.

I have a lack of summer stitching to display so I stitched The Drawn's Thread 'Spot of Summer' and finished it as a pillow. I've had this kitted up for a while so I have no excuses really for not stitching it sooner. It was a quicker stitch than I was expecting.

Spot of Summer - The Drawn Thread
Fabric - 32ct Zweigart Sand linen
Threads - Suggested DMC threads
Charm - Sunflower charm included with chart
Take care everyone.
