February's Smalls Check in

I managed a finish this month. After changing my mind several times I found this chart by Julia Lucas Designs in Just Cross Stitch, 2013 Halloween Ornament Issue. The model uses beads for some of the bones but I just used floss and plain cross stitch. I stitched it last week and did the finishing over the weekend. I also finished the Moon Witch from last month's Halloween Ornie SAL.

February's Gifted Generosity SAL progress

It's February 15th and time for a Gifted Generosity SAL link up. My plans for this link up was to complete the stitching of the pincushion. I managed to finish the front of the pincushion, the back hasn't been started yet.  I will need to make stitch faster if I am to complete the back and do front of the needlebook. Someone has stolen 2 days from this month.

Dual Entry

My Halloween Ornie for January is the Witch Moon a freebie by Cheryl A. Smith. This was a quick stitch. As the month was about to slip away from me, she will also be posted as my 2015 Smalls SAL project. She is stitched on a piece of 28ct black fabric that was meant for another project. I have not decided yet on the finishing.
