Smalls SAL fairy, WIPs

Hello my dear readers

For the past two months I was not able to stitch my fairies for smalls SAL.  And I managed to stitch the April fairy with a small quote.  I stitched the words using backstitch.   I am happy with the finish. The weather was not good to take a photograph.  Since I want to check in to the smalls SAL on time I managed to take one and that's why my fairy is here today.

Also I whipped some solid granny hexagons and made it into grandmas flower garden hexagon flowers.  I am going to join those flowers to make a baby blanket.  

In my embroidery hoop, a kasuti saree WIP.  I am working on this for 10 to 15 mins in a day.  Last year I didn't do anything on my sarees.  Two plain sarees are waiting for their turn and this green cotton saree got into my hoop.  Now I am working on the border.  Below is the progress of 2 days work.  I will be updating the progress on this saree in every 15 days.  The same pattern gets repeated for 9 metres. And I will be adding some big motifs for the pallu and small motifs in between. 

My mega cross stitch project is also growing steadily.  I am happy that I am doing 100 stitches a day which makes a fairly good progress..  That's all from my side.   Will see u with another finish.  Till then, Have a happy time with needle and thread. 

I am linking this post to smalls SAL June check in.


  1. You certainly have made good progress. I am glad to hear you are working regularly on the sari, 15 min a day does not sound like much, but progress can soon be seen. Also you have been adding 100 cross stitches to the Big One and that means you are nearing the finish at a good speed.
    The granny Square baby blanket will be beautiful.

  2. What nice work! It is so satisfying to see the slow but steady progress on such lovely projects!

  3. Love this cute little fairy and the hexie baby blanket will be lovely, such pretty colours.

  4. The cross stitch fairy is very cute and your crochet hexagons are also lovely.


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