October 2018 Smalls SAL

I finished up Mr. Nutley Owl by Just Nan for this month’s Smalls SAL. Here he is! Isn’t he darling? I can see why these designs are addicting. It is just SO cute! I also finished up my Christmas Ornies SAL project for this month’s theme “O Christmas Tree.” This is the Christmas Tree Scissors …

More Summer Finishes
