Smalls SAL - November 2021

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 is the fifth Christmas ornie from a set of six by Durene Jones. I stitched two in 2019, two last year, and am on my final two this year:

Noel by Durene Jones (etsy)
Stitch Count 45 wide by 45 high
Stitched on 16ct White Silver Lurex aida 2 over 2
Started - 1st November 2021
Finished - 8th November 2021
Total stitching time - 10 hours 10 minutes

As usual I replaced the french knots with beads, but that's the only change I made.

And since my monarchs are also back, they get a second outing too!

So December will not only be the final Christmas ornie from this set, but also the last Smalls SAL of the year - again!

Take care,
Rachel x


  1. Very cute Ornie from Durene, it's a nice feeling to (nearly) complete a series!

  2. What cute little projects this month! William and Mary and too funny. How satisfying to finish a series! I hope you will share them all together!

  3. Lovely pieces. The noel is just beautiful indeed.

  4. Your ornament is very cute - simple, yet pretty!

  5. I love that Noel ornament. I think I have that saved somewhere as well. I always need to add the little dots on the 'e' though and some charts don't leave room for them.


Thank you for taking time to view and comment on my blog. All comments are read and greatly appreciated. I try to reply, even if it's just to say another thank you. :)
