Smalls SAL - December 2018

Hi all!

It's the final Friday of 2018 so it's time for the final Smalls SAL posting of 2018. I hope your Christmas / holiday season is going well.

For December I couldn't not choose something Christmassy so stitched another little Christmas Cat. Back in July, when I stitched the first one, I asked you to vote for which of the five others I should stitch in December but there wasn't a clear winner, so I chose this one:

Dangling Christmas Cat by Design Works Crafts
Stitched on 16ct Tin over-dyed aida with sparkles from 2 over 1
Stitch count 43 wide by 37 high
Started - 1st December 2018
Finished - 6th December 2018
Total stitching time - 7 hours 5 minutes

And need I even bother to say how he's been finished off?!

But there's also a bonus Smalls SAL piece this month since I had a couple of days spare and wanted to stitch something quick. So, appropriately for the busy build up to Christmas, here's Mr Rush, who's been finished off as a card to match the other Mr Men I stitched a couple of years ago.

Mr Rush available at (free)
Stitched on 16ct Lilac over-dyed aida from 2 over 1
Stitch count 25 wide by 36 high
Started - 23rd December 2018
Finished - 24th December 2018
Total stitching time - 3 hours 5 minutes

So, that's it for the 2018 Smalls SAL. I stitched and fully-finished-off 13 pieces this year and look forward to being similarly successful in 2019!

Take care,
Rachel x

Your kitty is adorable, I love the little pompom on his hat too!
Mr. Rush is a nice fun project.
