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 - April edition.

Hi everyone,

Smalls Sal time again, hosted by Heather at Stitching Lotus

We've had a crazy busy week as both Smalls had their birthdays last weekend. DS turned 12 and we celebrated with Go-Karting and Pizza. DS turned 7 and had a Jewellery making party with 6 of her friends. They also had party games too.
We had a great weekend, but very tiring to say the least!

So back to the Smalls SAL. It's a lovely easy going sal where we can pick our own smalls and show a finish on the last Friday of the month. 

I set myself a challenge of 10 finishes in April and I'm pleased to say I hit my target. They were all smalls so here goes for a mammoth post! 

The first four months for my calendar stitched in various variegated threads by Anchor and DMC. By Palko-lap 

Hello spring by Lizzie Kate

Spring keeper by The Drawn Thread

Cactus embroidery

Seahorse by Mouseloft

Little alphabet sampler

Gilmore Girls by Wee Littlle Stitches

That was quite some stitching considering I got most of Blackwork Birdsong finished too. I was really lucky to have a few days over Easter when I could just stitch. 

I'm joining in with Maynia over on Facebook in May, stitching on at least 17 projects including 5 new starts! Lets hope I get a small finish for next month! 

Have a great weekend! 


  1. What great finishes. I think I need to add the Palko designs to my list. I've had them downloaded for so long!
    The Drawn Thread scissor fob is gorgeous too.

  2. wow, you were so productive!! some gorgeous little smalls there

  3. Awesome finishes! I love the Gilmore Girls, so that piece is a favorite, although the cactus stitching is really pretty too! :D

  4. Well done, such a lot of progress.


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. :-)
