Link-up For Fully Finished Gallery SAL - February 2020

Hello all!

It's the 10th of the month so it's Fully Finished Gallery SAL time again; the place to show your FFOing achievements since your last link-up, however long ago that may be!

The link-up for this SAL opens on the 10th of each month and stays open for 10 days, so you have plenty of time to turn those UFOs into FFOs and join in.

Still no new linky-picture I'm afraid. Maybe next month...?

So what have I achieved in the last month? Given the events of the last few weeks, I'm so glad I did a bit of FFOing very soon after the last link-up. I had more planned but they'll have to wait. At least all were tiny, quick and easy!

Robin On Postbox was January's Smalls SAL piece. Mouseloft kits are designed to fit into small Framecraft frames so that's what I did. All I had to do was trim the fabric and pop it in. Job done in less than 5 minutes!

The three Advent Calendar days from last month were also FFOd. For these, I cut two pieces of sparkly felt slightly bigger than the cross stitched design, stuck them back-to-back with a loop of barley twist cord in between and then simply stuck the aida to the felt. Quick, simple and quite cute, I think!

And that's it for me this month. Now it's over to you to show what you have finished.

Please link-up using the URL of your FFG SAL post and not the home page of your blog, adding a thumbnail of a finish and either your name or your blog name as the caption. The link-up will remain open for 10 days, closing at 6am UK time on 20th February.

Mister Linky's Magical Widgets -- Thumb-Linky widget will appear right here!
This preview will disappear when the widget is displayed on your site.

And please don't forget to follow other links and see what fellow fully-finishers have been up to; you never know, other projects may give you an idea for your next finish!

Once the link-up has closed I shall update the FFG SAL page with the number of entrants and entries. Last month there were 11 participants with 39 FFOs; a great start to the year!

Next month's post will go live on 10th March at 6am UK time. Hope to see you there!

Take care,
Rachel x

Lovely finishes! I do like the look of the felt with the pinking shears. Those are really fun.

The advent calendar days are really cute, it looks like it will be fun doing lots of those through the year!

Great job with your finishing! I love how you chose not to match the stitching thread colour to the sparkly felt for your advent calendar pieces. Instead red on sparkly green felt and green on sparkly red felt.

Great finishing, I love your advent calendar days

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Nice finishing. It is an excellent idea to make an early start on the finishing each month!

The Advent Calendar is going to be great,

Katie said...

Fantastic finishes! Love them all. All linked up with my 6 new finishes. Thanks for hosting yet again.

I love those advent ornaments you are stitching with the little wooden plaques. Makes me want to stitch that too just to get the little wooden plaques! I'm going to have to get my pinking shears sharpened. I like the look of that too.

Wow! So many finishes - great job.

Another successful month of FFOs for you! They look great and I love your Advent calendar pieces. It is going to be cute when you have it finished.
