January is going to end and this month my crafting time was going as per my schedule and I have managed to finish a couple of things. Last year I have participated in two cross stitch SALs , Smalls SAL hosted by stitching lotus and rainbow sal from Connigeedesigns. I managed to be on time till may for the smalls SAL and I have stitched only two months charts in the rainbow sal. So I thought I will continue with those WIPs this year.
For the last years Smalls SAL I was stitching LucieHeaton fairies and luckily I have saved all the charts when they r free to download. Now it is not free. For this month I continued to stitch the June fairy and added the backstitched words "Be strong".
So far I have stitched 6 fairies and 6 more to go to complete the piece.
I am linking this post to Smalls SAL 2018 - January. Ha ha I managed to join the link party in the last moment.
In the beginning of this year I have bought fabrics to make a black and white half square triangle blocks quilt. I am doing 1 block per week on Thursday. So far I have completed the four blocks for January. Though they are not perfect I like it. Framing the blocks will be done in red color.
I am following this site to do the blocks. I have cut many squares at a time make half square triangles out those squares whenever I feel to sew. Then on every week Thursday I will be following the block pattern and sew the block.
I am happy to say that I am going to finish another page in my mega cross stitch project. Hope to show that page in my next post. Some cross stitch cushions and a purse is in the queue to get showcased here. So do watch my space.
Happy cross stitching and happy quilting.
