SALs on Parade

I have three finishes for the month; and they are my SALs for 4 groups, Christmas Ornie SAL 2015, Hallowe'en Ornie 2015, Stitching Smalls 2015 and WipoCalypse 2015. My Christmas ornament was started some time ago and the final stitches done last Friday.  The theme of September was trees. The  Halloween ornament I mean Halloween small, was a freebie. It's a little big for an ornament but will be neat for a pillow, pincushion or box top.

My Christmas ornament is by Little House Needleworks,
Joy and Peace

and my Halloween Small from Glory Bee. I changed some of the colors to ones I had at hand. Boo!, a quick, fun, spooky word to stitch.

My other  finish this month was my pincushion doll. I am really happy to have completed this doll.

Your Halloween and Christmas finishes are wonderful….BUT THAT DOLL IS GORGEOUS!
I think I mentioned last time that I commented that I have been collecting half dolls because I very much want to try my hand at making one. CONGRATS on a beautiful finish and amazing accomplishment.

Two great little smalls and a gorgeous doll! I've seen her stitched before and I know how much work there is involved in the design.
