April Small SAL

This month has been a productive one as far as small stitches are concerned. I managed to finish my granddaughter's gift into a pinkeep, finish stitching a second piece and then start another before the month was over.
 You saw my granddaughter's finish on last month's post but I had yet to do the final finishing. We had originally hoped for a pillow finish but because of its size I decided to do a pinkeep. I thought that it would be much easier for her to display it this way. I also have to admit that I detest using the sewing machine and I was much happier doing it this way. Once again, this is a finish by Blackbird Designs called Bird in Hand. I've also posted some pics of her opening her gift. 

Océanne has just turned 11 and she was so pleased that I had remembered to stitch the piece she had picked out. She was afraid that I might forget! I added a little charm to the bottom of the piece which says Stitched With Love. She loved it!

After finishing this I started another Blackbird Design, Pins and Tulips Pincushion which I shared the start of last month. Stitching is finished on this and it will be turned into a small pillow for displaying in my dough bowl.

I changed this up a little. I added a small sun charm in place of my initial. I then stitched my initials in a different colour within the small partial alphabet. 

I've started another new small by E Sub-Rosa called Such a Perfect Day. I love the little spool of thread in this one. It should be finished up within the next couple of days and then on to the next one! See you next month.
