Smalls SAL - May 2019

Hello all!

It's the last Friday of the month so time for the Smalls SAL. Thank you, Mary, for continuing to run this fun little SAL. Pop over to Mary's blog to see what other participants have been stitching in the way of Smalls this month.

Each month I stitch a small project specifically for this SAL which doesn't appear elsewhere on my blog. For May, this was another little Australian Bird from a series out of which I have already stitched three but still have many, many more to go. Here's the latest one: 

Kookaburra by FuzzyFoxDesigns (etsy)
Stitch Count 43 wide by 35 high
Stitched on 16ct Sand Dune over-dyed aida from 2 over 1
Started - 3rd May 2019
Finished - 7th May 2019
Total stitching time - 5 hours 25 minutes

I love stitching the birds in this series. They're basically all the same shape but that's so easy to overlook when they've all got such different colourings. Here's the link to FuzzyFoxDesigns' Little Birds in case you feel tempted!

For this Smalls SAL I'm also re-showing other qualifying projects I've stitched during the month.

My birthstone of the month, May in Emerald:

And my monarch of the month, Henry II:

In June I'll be stitching another colourful little Australian bird from this collection. See you then!

Take care,

Love your little Kookaburra. We do have some native beautiful birds down under I have to admit. And Henry looks like a bit of rapscallion. Emerald May is very pretty too. My birth month is June so I am especially looking forward to this months birthstone.

That kookaburra is so cute! I like Fuzzy Fox Designs-did you see she has a Facebook group now? Henry II looks like he was a happy fellow! Thanks for joining the SAL!

Nice work on the kookaburra, we used to sing a song about kookaburras at Primary School. Random fact.
