July SALS Update


Christmas in July Sales.  I’d be so much richer without them. J  Still, I did pick up these.
 

The Halloween issue I got a discount on by signing up for the Christmas issue.  The Santa’s Village patterns finish off my set, so it seemed like a good investment.

London is starting to break out in words.  Either that or it’s the top of a train that’s making a trail of white puffy clouds. J
 

I didn’t finish a Christmas piece for the Smalls SAL but there are these.
 

The palm tree design is from the book, Rainbow of Stitches.  I used some old stash floss.  This is J & P Coats Pastelles #557.  Good thing I didn’t run out of floss because I only bought skein way back when.  Next I have my eye on a floss color by Six Strand Sweets called Chocolate Covered Cherries.  So the big question is – cupcake or ice cream design?

With a little luck and a lot more stitching, I’ll be back on Saturday with a YOTA update.

Happy stitching World

    1. Hi, the monthly pieces all come from a book called "Sand, Sea & Cross Stitch" by Anna Field. You should be able to find it on Amazon. It's a fun book.

    1. The London poster is in Cross Stitch Gold, issue 37 (USA), from August of 2013. I'll have to look up the dates on the other two, but London is the first of the series.
