June Smalls SAL

Hi Blogger Friends. It's the last Wednesday of the month and time for the Smalls SAL.  This is being hosted by Heather of Stitching Lotus.  We pick a small project to stitch on and post a finished picture on the last Wednesday of the month.  The reason I'm a day late posting this is because I fell sound asleep stitching in my chair last night and woke up in time to go to bed.  (Must be old age)

Thank you for all of the great comments you leave.  I really do appreciate them.

Thanks for looking.  Linda

June Gifted Gorgeousness

GIFTED GORGEOUSNESS is being hosted by Jo of Serendipitous Stitching.  We all have projects that have been gifted to us or pieces that we are doing as gifts.   This SAL is so we can work on those and post on the 15th.
Pretty Mini Paris by Satsuma Street.  The magazine was gifted to me by our awesome hostess Jo.  I managed to stitch the green building and car in the last week.

This is going to be a lapghan for a good friend and neighbor Shirley for Christmas.  The gray is Red Heart Team Spirit in red and gray.  They are the color of the San Francisco 49 er's - her favorite football team.  The solid color is Red Heart Cherry.  I think I'm going to do the squares in the Team Spirit variegated yarn and the flat braid join (new to me) (how did I do?) in the red.

Thanks for looking.  Linda

Thank you all again for the awesome comments.  I really appreciate them.

3 Finishes and a SAL Update

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thank you all for the encouraging comments on my last post.  I really appreciate them. I am so much happier with the decisions that I made.  Work on what I want, when I want and for as long as I want.
I did work on 3 Turtle Trots before I came up with my new plans.

ABC Christmas - Lizzie Kate

Mitten Friends - Diane Arthurs

Finish 8 -  Snow Day -  6 Fat Men - Lizzie Kate

Finish 10 and 11
Two of my DH co-workers had babies last month.  I decided to give them each a crocheted baby blanket.  I started them last Thursday and wanted to get them finished for his company picnic yesterday so I could give it to them.  I finished yesterday at the picnic and was able to give it to them.

Squircle Square - free pattern at Dly's Hooks and Yarns (Squircle is a circle in a square.)  I modified the squares some and they sure are fun to make.  I see me making lots of blankets with them in the future.

Sunday SAL - Santa's 12 Days of Christmas - Prairie Schooler - I had been working on this one for several days before I started the baby blankets.  He's almost done.

Tuesday SAL - Pretty Little London - Satsuma Street - I worked on this one last week but not this week yet.

Thanks for looking.   Linda
