June Smalls SAL and Monday Stitching Update

Friday was a check in for the Smalls SAL and even though our leader Heather has been missing several of us are still stitching along in spirit and hope she is back soon. The idea of this SAL was to stitch something small each month and maybe even finish it. When I started this SAL I thought it would be a good excuse to a do a monthly design to represent each month. I've really enjoyed it. This is my 3rd time participating. I've been doing the Durene Jones Calendar pieces each month this year. Here is June all finished and on display...
Last week I picked up a WIP I had been missing...
Salt Water Taffy from Joan Elliott. Evidently I hadn't worked on it since January 2018 which didn't seem possible. No wonder I heard it screaming for attention. Here it was last time I worked on it...
I got 3 days of stitching on it during the week...
Now I have 17 days total into it. I really missed working on this one. Felt great to pick it up again. I need to remember not to take such a long break next time.

I did pack some stitching to take with me on our extended cabin stay. Hopefully I'll squeeze in some time. I hope everyone in the US has a great 4th of July.

  1. Your monthly small looks great, as does Salt Water Taffy. I love how you choose which project to stitch by how much it screams at you! You must have a very noisy stitching corner indeed! :)

  8. Lovely small and great work on Salt Water Taffy too. That's the perfect design for Independence Day as it is uniquely American and I have no idea how the title connects with the picture!
