Smalls SAL 2015 - June finish, Needlepoint - Brick stitch

I have cross stitched a Quotes chart as May finish for smalls SAL 2015.  You can view that cross stitched piece here.  And for this months finish I have added a simple border to it.  I should give it for framing and it will hang in my DH's office room.   Here is the finished piece.

Also, I have stitched one more block in my needlepoint sampler.  This is brick stitch stitched over 4 canvas threads. Want to learn the stitch?  Click here.

Some aimless crochet squares which I have done.  At times when I didn't feel like doing any particular project I crochet something that can be finished within 10 to 15 mins.  This is how the following squares have been whipped up.  The pattern for the first square is from here.  The second square is called Pretty petals 12" square and the pattern source is here.

In my next post I will come up with the embroidery in my saree.  Till then, Happy stitching and crocheting.

  1. Beautiful stitching and lovely squares, ,Shami!! :) I have an anchor canvas embroidery stitches book, and one more stitch sampler book have some needlepoint stitches. After seeing yours I am thinking of giving it a try.

  2. wow..... looks you are very busy.... i love the embroidery quotes...

  3. The quotes piece looks great as do the crochet squares.

  4. What a lovely quote you've stitched up. And that brick stitch in your needlepoint sampler is really pretty!

    I crochet small things sometime too when I want a quick, satisfying finish.

    Thanks so much for linking up to last week's Stitchery Link Party. Aloha hugs!


I would like to hear from you as it boosts me up a lot.
