It's that time of month again, time for the Smalls SAL check in, hosted by Heather at Stitching Lotus. I had a productive month stitching away. I honestly didn't realize just how much I had stitched, until I started getting pictures ready to post.
Here we go...
These two are for my co-worker and friend Daun Knight. She is an artist and loves bats so when I saw the "Carpe Noctem" in the Just Cross Stitch Halloween Ornament edition, I had to make it for her. And yes, her favorite color is purple. I think the letters for her card are from a World of Cross Stitching magazine that came out earlier this year. The original letters all had the same picture, so I changed the pictures and added purple, cause you can never have enough purple.
Dragon Dreams. I recently discovered the website and love the sample charts, along with the freebies posted on Facebook.
I made two wedding cards, one for the lady that coaches the JV soccer team at my son's high school and another for a co-worker. The gold striped paper on the card on the right was actually part of her wedding invitation.
And this beauty was for a co-worker that retired yesterday. She's a wonderful lady and this card fit her to a tee. It also took forever to stitch as I started it in early August!
And finally, a pattern I designed myself using a quote from Anais Nin. She has some beautiful quotes and I had designed this card over a year ago and never had time to stitch it. I finally made time and I think it turned out pretty good.
October stitching will consist of more Christmas stitching and maybe, just maybe I'll get some work done on my larger WIP's...maybe :)
