March SMALLS SAL

Heather over at Stitching Lotus hosts this lovely SAL, if you haven't signed up and want to have a go showing off your small stuff...get on over there!  She's really sweet too, so that just makes it more fun.

Well, you know how in February everything just came together and I had so many things to show off?  March was not that way ha, ha!  Just a few little things here.

Magical and I are hosting a Neglected Floss SAL over at Stitching Pirates and began with the first pattern created by Magical in the beginning of March.  

The idea came in to my  head as I sat here in the ol' NCC looking at my floss, I have flosses that have never been used.  When I had gone through and updated my DMC floss boxes there were whole bobbins of floss that had literally never been touched!

These little patterns also help clean out those odds and ends you have stuffed in with your fabric stash, so why not do a quick stitch up with some specialty thread you have laying around or grab those flosses that have never been used!  You do have to be a member of Stitching Pirates to participate, but you won't regret signing up!  We have tons of fun stuff going on there all the time.



For the April Neglected Floss SAL I stitched up this pretty little thing to have it ready for the April 1st posting.  If you like mine you should see Magical's


Next up we have the Stitch for Syria, which I love so I made two and these are actually the stitch ups that started the Neglected Floss Idea as I was using two different flosses that I had picked up quite some time ago and didn't know what to do with!  I just wanted to try them out on something and this was the most wonderful time to give those flosses a going over.  I love the Glorianna Silk and will get more of that.  The Caron Wildflowers floss I had didn't thrill me as much, but it still came out beautifully enough for me to make a bookmark out of it.


This is the pattern I created for my book club The Sacred Order of the Glorious Laborious Book Club, or TSOOTGLBC for short. (spell checker insists this should be FOOTSTOOL).

Everyone is welcome to join us on Goodreads and if you wanted to really participate more, you can be added to the monthly meet event thing that we post privately.  I will be making more of these bookmarks, one for each member here and then for each satellite member.  One down 8 more to go!  

So you see, by the time I got done with the bookmark I was no longer enjoying the Caron floss and there was still so much left on the card!  I'm going to send it on to another stitcher so they can try it out.

So there it is, my Smalls SAL check in for March!  I will try and do more for April, no promises!

Until next time...Keep on Stitchin'!
