Smalls SAL - May 2020

Hello all!

It's the last Friday of the month so time for the Smalls SAL. Thank you, Mary, for continuing to host 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's piece was another I 'inherited' from my mum and is from the same series as the Polar Bear Cub I stitched a couple of months ago. After stitching the Polar Bear Cub on flimsy fabric, this fabric was the complete opposite; the cotton is so thick that the holes are tiny! It was well worth the perseverance though as it stitched up a treat.

Duckling by Heritage Crafts
Stitch Count 25 wide by 36 high
Stitched on 32ct Sparkle Snow murano 2 over 2
Started - 1st May 2020
Finished - 29th May 2020
Total stitching time - 6 hours 20 minutes

In this Smalls SAL I'm also re-showing other qualifying small projects I've stitched during the month. This month it's just my Monarch, the always-hungry Edward IV:

Next month's Smalls SAL, it will be something from Australia I think.

Take care,

I just LOVE these little Heritage Crafts charts of animals. They are just charming. And the kings set has been really fun to watch as you add each king. I can't wait to see the whole thing. That will be a real accomplishment!
