I have 2 things to show you for the Smalls SAL this month!
My thread came in so I finished up Tiny Nativity:
Then…I made the Big Mistake I knew well to avoid. However I have not make this mistake before so I thought I could get away with it. I sprayed it a smidgen to iron and the colors bled. Boo Hoo! And worse, the beads…melted? crinkled? Anyway, they are not the same. But I am not going to worry about these things! They way I plan to finish it you won’t see the bleeding. And overall, it is too tiny to notice any problems, and it will be hanging on the Christmas tree with the Christmas lights and no one will know but me! And you!
And I ALSO finished the Spring Pyn Pillow this week!
I just loved every bit of working on this…the border was slightly tedious, but then I am not a big fan of stitching borders for that reason. But it is just SO pretty, and I enjoyed the 1 over 2 on the 40 ct AND I found the perfect backing material! Voila!
Now I have to wait for my trim. The silly thing is I just ordered trim for something else from Dames of the Needle and failed to notice that I ALSO needed this trim, so I could have had it right now, and but to avoid paying shipping a second time in 2 weeks I ordered from LNS. Fine. It will get here when it gets here, and then I REALLY need to have a end of year finishing party.
