Smalls SAL - December 2016

Good morning all!

Here's my posting for the last Smalls SAL of 2016 run by Heather of Stitching Lotus.

Towards the beginning of the month I stitched one small project for this SAL. But after finishing my fourth Christmas Pals Ornament didn't want to start another WIP which I wouldn't be able to finish before the end of the year. So I opted for stitching two more small projects instead.

Mr Daydream, Mr Jelly and Mr Happy have been sitting in my pile of charts for quite a long time. The charts were freebies from There are a few Mr Men and Little Miss characters available (along with many, many other free charts!) so more may be making an appearance next year... or not... we'll see!

So on to the photos then:

Mr Daydream
Freebie from
Stitched on 16ct Cloud Spring Sky from 2 over 1
Started - 9th December 2016
Finished - 10th December 2016
Total stitching time - 4 hours 10 minutes

Mr Jelly
Freebie from
Stitched on 16ct Cloud Pink from 2 over 1
Started - 24th December 2016
Finished - 25th December 2016
Total stitching time - 4 hours 30 minutes

Mr Happy
Freebie from
Stitched on 16ct Sundrop from 2 over 1
Started - 26th December 2016
Finished - 30th December 2016
Total stitching time - 5 hours 15 minutes

Mr Daydream in particular has always been a favourite character, being the first Mr Men book I ever owned. The others aren't far behind.

To sum up my Smalls SAL for the year, I completed 15 projects in total and at least one per month. Out of those 15 projects, 9 (from January to August inclusive) have been made into ornaments or cards. Not bad considering I find the finishing off tedious!

I didn't stick to stitching 12 LK Tiny Tidings as planned, so next year I really have no idea what I will be stitching each month. Watch this space, as the saying goes!

Thank you to Heather for continuing to run this SAL and for everybody that contributes. I hope it continues to be just as successful next year.

Back in January then,
