Smalls SAL

The last Friday of the month is check in for the Smalls SAL. Yes Yes I know I totally missed it but the check in is still open so I'm jumping in before it's too late. Stop over to Mary's blog to see who stitched up what cuties this month.

I started this fun SAL a few years ago with an excuse to stitch up small monthly pieces. This year I'm doing two. One Nautical set for my mom and one Lizzie Kate set for me. My goal is keep up and so far I've done good with that goal. I know I've posted them a thousand time this month but here they are again haha.

Mom's Nautical set is from the Sand, Sea & Cross Stitch booklet. I love how each one has turned out and will be starting September hopefully today.
My set this year is Lizzie Kate Flip-It Stamps. I love how they have worked in 3 little buttons to each design.

The other thing I finished this month that is considered small is a Hinzeit piece called Love2Stitch...
(Finish #28) August 29th
Love2Stitch from Hinzeit
Stitched on 28ct Lavender Jobelan from PolStitches
Threads are Suggested DMC
Charm Came with Pattern
Started for Longest Weekend Marathon June 24th
Took 4 Days. Total Time 5 Hours 36 Minutes.

Now to start the September pieces to keep up with my goal. This is the time of year I start to wonder what I will work on next year for this SAL. I have several choices and pick a different set depending on the day haha.

I've seen a few of these Hinzeit charts around. They're all cute little designs, but this one is obviously the best and the charm is perfect. Do you have any others in the series? Beer? Mom? Shells?
I've been planning for next year too and think I'm more or less done. Something big will be happening and I'm excited about my plans for that, although might not feel so positive after the actual event! :)

These are all so very cute, Katie! I've stitched the LK August myself and realize I still have it on display--oops!! It is September isn't it--it kind of snuck up on me this year :)

Nice work on keeping up with the monthly Smalls series x two!
