Smalls SAL - May

Mary of Mary's Thread hosts the Smalls SAL on the last Friday of the month. It is an opportunity to share our stitching on small projects during the month.

As in previous months, the 12 days of Christmas continues to be my focus for my monthly small projects.

Fifth Day
The Twelve Days of Christmas - Jardin Privé
Fabric: 28ct Zweigart Vintage Country Mocha linen
Threads: Suggested DMC threads for red version

Fifth Day
The Twelve Days of Christmas - Plum Street Samplers
Fabric: 32ct Zweigart White linen
Threads: DMC 415, 932, 3750, 3820

I also wanted to 'test' an alternative to white fabric for my next Just Nan sampler so I stitched this little design from Follow The Needle on lilac linen. The effect is more delicate that I would like for the main design so it looks like white linen will be used.

Scissor fob rose from Follow the Needle - Just Nan
Fabric: 32ct lilac linen
Threads: Suggested DMC threads


  1. Very pretty smalls for May, Mary! I do like the lilac fabric a lot--perhaps you could make this one into a little scissor fob? Enjoy the month of June! ♥

  2. BEautiful new stitches, i love them all.
    Have a great week, Martina

  3. Nice work on the Fifth Days.
    I am glad you tried lilac fabric for the fob as I still haven't decided what to use myself!

  4. Good progress on your Christmas stitching. I like the pretty little design on lilac fabric.

  5. Sweet smalls, I like how delicate looking the Just Nan is.
