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 July I stitched the third Christmas Cat out of a series of six:
Stitch Count 38 wide by 36 high
Stitched on 16ct Tin with sparkles over-dyed aida from sewitall.com 2 over 1
Started - 5th July 2019
Finished - 24th July 2019
Total stitching time - 6 hours 30 minutes
Unfortunately he isn't fully-finished yet because of an issue with the barley twist cord... I have 27 different colours and 26 of them are in my bag... guess which one isn't?! I'm assuming I took it out when I started this project but I guess the little pixies have taken a shine to it! I've ordered some more and will FFO this little cutie when it arrives (and before you ask, yes, I could have used a different colour but I wanted all my Christmas Cats to match).
For this Smalls SAL I'm also re-showing other qualifying small projects I've stitched during the month.

So that's it for July. Next month I'll be prematurely welcoming autumn!
