If you've been following my blog for a while, you know that I usually like to make a new small something for Jo's monthly SAL checkins, but the past few months have shown me that I am hard pressed to both do that AND meet my stitching goals on the other projects at the same time...so I've made the executive decision to save a little time and use older pictures for this posts, if I have some that fit. And since I missed last month's checkin altogether, you're probably in for a looot of pictures...you've been warned!
Last month, the topic was specialty stitches (and as I learned from Jo, I've been pronouncing these the US way all along, even though I originally tried to learn British English!) and while I don't get to use those very often, I do love them. Most prominently, my Angel of Frost had a TON of them, especially in the border, and I've done two band samplers (also something I love and don't do nearly often enough):
Now for this month, the topic is 'Flowers', and I've done a few of those as well! A pillow case with big bright tulips (which reminds me, those still need finish-finishing!), a couple asters, a garden sampler, and most recently, my Hello Spring card. Quite a few WIPs as well...which reminds me, I'll better get stitching ;)
