A day late TUSAL and Smalls SAL

Yesterday was the new moon, so in addition being a wonderful, dark night for sleeping it was also time for a 2014 TUSAL check-in.  Sharon over at It's Daffycat hosts the SAL.  This is the easiest SAL to participate in, if you stitch, you already have half of what you need to participate in all those bits you snip off and throw away.  All you need to do is put them in a pretty jar, dish or cup and post a photo on the new moon.  At the end of the year, I put them all in a clear ornament, paint the year on it and hang them on my cork board.

Heather at Stitching Lotus is hosting 2014 Smalls SAL.  All you have to do to participate is stitch a small - what's a small?  Whatever you can stitch in a month is a small.  I love SALs that don't have a lot of rules!!

This month I decided to go for a two-fer photo.  Here is my TUSAL jar and my finished small.

Those of you with sharp eyes will see that the fabric on the top rod is a different color than the finished piece - there is a 3/4 done small on the frame.  I tried to have a double finish for this month, but just couldn't get there.

Love your small, Susan! Maybe I will get it stitched up some time in 2014.

Stay dry and safe!

cooo now I am impressed you being able to stitch on two pieces at once on the frame .. I thought at first you had tacked it on with another fabbie as it was too small for the rods
love the orts too :) love mouse xxxxx
