January Smalls 2021

My stitching in 2021 has picked up some from the pace of 2020 so far. I managed to complete two smalls this month and have already picked out a project for next month. 

 I started out the month with an ornament that I've had kitted up for a few years now. It's a Little House Needleworks Design called Saltbox Village. I don't know what got into me but for some strange reason I decided to stitch the entire ornament over one. I was looking to do some small bowl fillers that are winter scenes or that can fit in with my winter decor and this one fit the bill.

The next pic gives you an idea of just how small this sweet piece is.

I think all told it measures 1 3/4" squared. I really love how it turned out!

I started a second ornament, this time a Prairie Schooler, and decided to continue on the same fabric. The piece is large enough that I could do a few more on it.

This Prairie Schooler is from the booklet Button Up and I'm calling it the Snow Angel.

There are a couple more from this book that I want to add to these but I also have a Valentine small to stitch first in February. See you next month!



  1. Beautiful finishes! I've got the Saltbox Village ornament kitted up and just wasn't feeling the love, but after seeing yours I want to dig it out right now, LOL!

  2. Your Saltbox finish looks good on 40ct. The finished size looks ideal for it.
    I always find something to like in Prairie Schooler designs.

  3. That village is adorable over one. Is it really 40 count? I have done pieces that tiny but not so detailed.

  4. These are so very cute - how tiny is that Saltbox village! I finished a Saltbox house this month, too - so come check out my Smalls post, please.

  5. What sweet little stitches you have this month! Thank you for joining the SAL!

  6. These are absolutely adorable, I love how small they are!
