Smalls Sal June
A very quick post this month to share the finished ABC sal. I had great fun stitching this one so thank you to Ele the designer for sharing her pattern.
Last month I just had one square left to do and here it is. I added the zero too as I felt it needed one to finish the numbers.
So here is the finished design all framed and ready to go on the wall.
I added the the final box at the bottom so it would fit the frame, using stitches from various parts of the sampler.
In other small news I went to the hobbycrafts show at the NEC last Friday and brought a SMALL amount of stash home. The show was the first July one and was about a quarter the size of the normal ones in March and November and was a bit disappointing to say the least. I did get to see the new range of DMC coloris threads and brought 3 to try. I picked up 3 lovely cards and some book binding glue I wanted. Assorted cotton reels for various projects including a Christmas garland I want to create. The tiny frame was brought with miniature stitching in mind. We did stop off at Tortilla for lunch and had yummy burritos.
I may have then brought stationary and craft bits in Paperchase and Tiger on Saturday too, to compensate for Friday's disappointment.
Happy stitching friends
