Smalls SAL - November 2016

Good morning all,

Here's my offering for this month's Small's SAL run by Heather from Stitching Lotus.

This was a freebie from the Durene Jones Facebook page (you don't have to belong to FB to access the charts). If you like smalls and you like freebies, go and check her out here. There are loads of free charts available in her albums, covering a variety of themes. Some have made it onto my stitching list for 2017 as potential smalls.

Anyway, I digress. Here's this month's offering for my Smalls SAL:

Snowman
Durene Jones Facebook freebie
Stitched on 32ct Snowfall evenweave by Sewitall.com 2 over 2
Stitch count 48 wide by 48 high
Started - 5th November 2016
Finished - 9th November 2016
Total stitching time - 8 hours 25 minutes


I made a couple of chart alterations. First I didn't stitch the snowflakes or falling snow as the snowflakes on the fabric were enough, and second I added some colourful Kreinik to the snow on the ground. I was going to use just silver blending filament but decided to make it a little more colourful. I'm not sure if I like it or not as it makes the snow look dirty. Oh well.

Currently in my Box of Shame it'll be made into an ornament... eventually!

See you next month,
Rachel x

  8. Cute finish !! Love the fabric. I think you added a bit of glamour to the snow, it's always good to try something new rather than conventional.
