smalls SAL - January 2016

I've joined the smalls SAL this year over at Stitching Lotus because the hardanger SAL I'm working on fits perfectly! Every month, I'll be posting the hardanger motif I've finished. :3

This time was an easy warmup piece meant for practice with threads and motifs. The directions were great and had a lot of good detail and images showing what to do.


I'm not especially happy with the lightest blue for the "snowflakes" at the top and bottom, so I may end up picking up another thread or two to supplement the blue/green palette here. Still haven't decided if I want to do all the motifs in the same color scheme or not, since I do have a number of other perle cottons, but they don't really coordinate with each other.

Well, I have a few weeks to check out the next pattern and decide!

If you're interested in the SAL, you can still sign up!

  3. Very pretty! I would stick with that colour scheme if I were stitching this SAL. It would look so striking all in the same colours.

  5. It's a beautiful little finish. Well done! Having good instructions for a project like this must help a lot. Good luck with deciding on your colour palette for February and beyond. I shall look forward to seeing your choices. :)

  10. The blue/green colors are beautiful. I agree about the middle color, it doesn't seem to go with the others.

    Can't wait to see your next project :)

  11. Your piece looks great! I decided to joining the small SAL after seeing it on someone else's blog. I haven't started yet since I won't be able to get to my LNS until next week to pick my colours, but I am leaning towards white on a hand-dyed purple fabric, and I'll use silver metallic once in a while. Maybe...

    Thanks for joining the Smalls SAL!
