Come visit with me as I stitch and craft my way from one Christmas to the next - I like to have Christmas projects close by me all year. I have a particular fondness for Santas and Angels. If you have the time, leave a comment so I know you've visited.

Smalls SAL Report for April

Here in Australia it's already the last Friday in April, so it's time for the Smalls SAL. This month I have just  six Smalls to show, but first here is my lovely LA Santa framed in a pre-loved and newly painted wooden frame, ready for gifting to my nephew & niece this Christmas. The temptation to keep it myself is still lingering, so I have ready wrapped and labelled it ready for mailing. If I want this Santa for myself then I need to stitch it again!




I stitched these Jeremiah Junction nutcracker (from Nutcracker Factory III booklet) Christmas ornaments for three charming young sisters from a Nutcracker-loving family. There will be nine of my stitched JJ Nutcracker ornaments (all different designs) on their family Christmas tree this year.




I also made another three bead & button decorated Christmas trees, to give as take home gifts for Christmas visitors.




The Smalls SAL is hosted by Heather at 
Stitching Lotus.

You found an ideal frame for the Santa. The beaded ornament finishes are great.

I love your framed Santa and your beaded ornaments are gorgeous.

Your projects this month all look fantastic, as usual. I definitely think you need to stitch Santa again. You spend so much time stitching for other people you deserve something for yourself. :)

Lovely work again this month. I agree with Rachel, stitch Santa for yourself next!
