July Smalls

I forgot all about posting my smalls stitch for this month! I just happened to pass by my calendar a few minutes ago and wondered what I had marked on today's date. Had I missed an appointment? No, but I missed posting my smalls finish. Just enough time left in the day to get it up here!

I stitched two smalls during this past month. Liberty Dwells Here... by Sub Rosa Designs can be seen here for those who haven't already seen this finish. Of course this was in honour of Canada Day and will hopefully grace my decor next year.

The second small was just finished last week and is called Summer Pinkeep by Jenny Hoffman of Country Rustic Primitives.

This one will indeed become a pinkeep as it has been named just as soon as I catch up. I'm just starting to get back to my sewing following my hip surgery. It's not using the machine that bothered me but instead the standing while I cut and pieced material together.
I have a lot of catching up to do judging by the number of finished pieces residing in my drawer!
I did however manage to get two pieces done up which I stitched a number of years ago. These are going to be given as gifts. The first as a birthday gift and the second as a thank you gift.

Both of these pillows are stuffed with walnut shavings, crushed walnut shells and some dried lavender. They smell heavenly!

I really do enjoy stitching these small finishes and now I'm on the hunt for next month's projects.


  1. Love your Summer finish. It's so pretty.

    Gorgeous finishing of your othef pieces.

    Hope you are recovering well from your hip surgery.

  2. 2 Beautiful finishes. As always I love your choice of finishing.
    Such darling designs.
    I sure hope your healing well after your surgery. It sounds like its just too soon for you to be standing and bending over to cut fabrics for quilting. You will get there.
    I am really happy for you to not be in pain these coming Holidays.
    love Annette

    I'm totally in awe for of that nice little cardinal. The fabric you used for the finishing is more than perfect for the little design. I think I have this little guy in my stash as well and if so I'll have to stitch him right away.
