2018 Smalls SAL - Jan Check in

Today is the last Friday of the month (Wow already?!?) which means it's time for a Smalls SAL check in. This is my 3rd year participating. The idea of this fun SAL is to push us to stitch up something small each month. I enjoyed the idea of doing a monthly year long set in honor of this SAL.

In 2016 I did this fun perforated paper set from a Dimensions leaflet I had in my stash for years...
In 2017 I did the Snapshot series from Pine Mountain Designs. I still have 4 to finish up since I had such a busy year last year with traveling. But here is the latest one Dec that I recently finished...
This year I picked another fun set. This time from Durene Jones...
Rachel did them last year and I just fell in love with them. Plus they are actually little and should take a lot less time each month than the Snapshots that took around 7 days to finish sometimes more. Here is January all finished up and actually on display where it deserves to be instead of a hiding in a bin of shame...
It was a fun fast stitch only taking me 3 days from start to finished finish.

So hopefully I will be able to keep up and have a year worth of cute little monthly finishes by the end of the year.

By the way. I finished up my Valentine cutie last night. But I'm not sharing the photo with you just yet. It will be revealed in the upcoming Valentine Blog Hop hosted by the wonderful Jo. So make sure to come back Feb 14th for that. Which means that Hope will come back out to hopefully get finished off. Listen for the loud celebration coming sometime.
