As the song from Gilmore Girls says “So welcome to my little corner of the world”. It’s all about me and my crafting – focusing around my love for stitching and sewing along with anything else that catches my eye. So welcome, grab a coffee and happy reading.

Smalls SAL May

Hello friends

I'm having a quiet morning at home today indulging in a bit of tennis and F1 viewing in peace!

It's the Whitsun bank holiday weekend this weekend and we have friends over Monday so I need to tidy craft corner as they have a little one and that is no small task! I've been making lots and lots for the travelling box over the last week. I've made 7 things so far and I have another couple in progress. I've still found time to stitch on my chosen piece for the smalls sal so on to that...

So as the title says its Smalls SAL check in hosted by Heather at Stitching Lotus I've been stitching the ABC sal that Ele at Busy hands craft  designed and I've actually managed to catch up! I didn't post last month as life was crazy busy with the children's birthdays. So last time I had just started N for needle...

Next up was P for peacock...

T for thread...

V for Vase...

And lastly for the alphabet Z for Zinnia...

We then started on the numbers... I loved doing the star stitches and saved them for last. 

I'm not going to show you the whole thing as it is as I'm close to finishing it and I'll show it next smalls post all framed and finished. I have 2 other cross stitches that need framing that are the same finished size so I will buy 3 and do them all. The other 2 have only been waiting 2 years! 

Have a great weekend xx
