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. This month it was one month from a year long set by Bent Creek. This is the best link I could find which shows them all and the rhyme they make if all stitched together, but here's the original for November:
I have no intention of buying or stitching the others but liked November. However, I made some changes - I swapped 'November' for 'Autumn', I changed every thread colour from their recommended DMC to colours I liked better, and, instead of using the snaps provided, I added some tiny matching autumn-coloured buttons. The differences aren't that obvious but here's my version:
Stitch Count 50 wide by 50 high
Stitched on 16ct Ochre over-dyed aida from sewitall.com 2 over 1
Started - 1st August 2019
Finished - 8th August 2019
Total stitching time - 6 hours 35 minutes
It'll be made into a little ornie at some point - I'm a bit behind with my FFOing at the moment.
For this Smalls SAL I'm also re-showing other qualifying small projects I've stitched during the month.

And my (unfinished because the Leopard doesn't have his spots) monarch of the month, Henry III:
In September I will be stitching a Hootie, although I haven't decided yet if it will be the pink, blue or green one. Decisions, decisions! Any preference?
