February Smalls SAL

It's been a very snowy month since my January post so I thought it only fitting that I stitch up these two sweet winter pillows.
Both are designs from The Sampler Girl. They were quick stitches and I love how they turned out!










 It's hard to tell from these photos but the fabric I stitched these on is an opalescent. I wanted the effect of snow in my background. I haven't decided yet whether or not I'll add a hanger to either of these. I have thought it would look great on Gone Sledding. I could hang it in my entry way and greet my guests with my message!

Here's a pic of my latest finishing project. You may recall I stitched this last year and it's been hiding in a drawer ever since. The design called for a small skeleton key charm with it but I found this cute little birdhouse charm sitting in my stash. Perfect! It was time to get this sweet one on display.



I'm already looking at some St. Paddy's Day stitches or perhaps another spring or Easter themed small for next month. I find it easiest to start work on something for the next month right after I've posted this month's finishes. That way they get completed on time, right down to the final finishing.  See you next month!

Very nice, Lynn. Pillows are a great idea when you finally run out of wall space like we have here.

Fun finishes, and with all the snow we've been having vary appropriate. I love opalescent fabric, I just finished a project on a blue piece with that, really like the bit of sparkle it gives pieces. Very cute finish of the bird pillow too, the birdhouse charm was perfect for it.

Oh I love your Snow Day and Sledding finishes :) Your sweet little birdie finish is darling!

Brigitte said...

OH Lynn, they are so lovely the little pillows you made, all three of them. The ones with the Sampler Girl designs are like companion pieces and the little birdie is a promise for spring to come.
I'm looking forward to seeing what you chose for your spring stitching.
