February Smalls SAL

So far, so good!  I have managed to stitch a small each month of this year! Yes, I realize that it's only February, but let's not break my bubble...

If you're interested in stitching along, here is the button that will take you to all the information that you will need to join along:

2014 Smalls SAL
 
 
This month I had a finish and a start.  First up is the finish:
 

Just Nan's Tall Flowers.  It's stitched on a 28-count natural something or other I think Cashel with DMC.  The charms came with the pattern or more correctly, the pattern came with the purchase of the charms.  They are cute but I think it would look just fine without them.  You would have to stitch another daisy in the top band but I think that would be the only modification needed.

My start was on Snowy Pines from Little House Needleworks:


This one is stitched on 30-count natural Northern Cross linen with DMC.  I did decide to add the beads to this one that's the"All Dolled Up!" part.

It looks wonderful! I'm always horrified by the price of the charms/buttons. I bought a Lynette Anderson pattern, I thought it was a kit as it cost me £6, but was just the pattern. I had a look at the buttons to see if I could buy them, and they were about £5 each!

Love the Just Nan. I have very few of the charms so I always substitute. I have found Tibetan Silver charms to be very cheap and easy to obtain.
