Smalls SAL - July

The last Wednesday of the month is time for the July Smalls SAL post!  I finished Mary Mouse, the third of 25 free Advent Animals from Brooke's Books and changed my blog header!

There is a Facebook group for the Advent Animals Stitch-A-Long where you can see many more finishes.  They look great on different colors of fabric!

I also finished Boo!, a freebie from Glory Bee, for the Hallowe'en Ornie SAL.  Each month is a different theme and July was Pumpkins.  I'd love to make it into a long rectangular pillow!

I used Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe floss for this design.  She's having a birthday giveaway of her hand-dyed floss, sampler patterns, and trims.  Enter HERE and tell Nancy that I sent you.  Drawing on August 14.  Good luck!

oohhh.. the BOO design is so cute.. will try stitching that too.. thank you for the sharing and link.. happy stitching to you.

Hi Debbie! Are you stitching the Advent Animals on one large piece of fabric or separate? How could I figure out what size fabric I would need to have the whole collection on one piece? I normally use 14Ct Aida..easiest for me to see!

Julianne said...

Also, I see alot of stitches starting their pictures in the corner of the fabric, how do they know they have enough room if they dont start in the middle?
