Small Finish Small WIP

This past weekend I finished up the American Goldfinch kit from Crossed Wing Collection for my mom’s birthday present. While it sure is cute, it is hard to sustain the micro stitching for long. Good thing it’s a little project! I finished it in a Tim Holtz watch fob like I did with my cardinal …

Diligence! A Smalls Update

OR How Regular Stitching Has Paid Off This Month. The kids are back in school, so that means I return to my regular schedule and some time to stitch in the car waiting for the pick up. And with the routine back in place, I also end up with some time in the evenings too. …

More Small(s) Triumphs!

I finished my June Smalls SAL: isn’t she a sweetie? I love it so much I bought the companion pieces which are a Santa and a bell. I FFO’d my June Noel ornament for the ornies blog: This is such a versatile design I will definitely make it again. So next time hopefully the finishing …
