September Smalls


Mary at 
Mary's Thread hosts the Smalls SAL. On the last Friday of the month we share our small stitching items that we have completed but not necessarily fully finished. Mary has a link up post on her blog so we can pop over to see everyone's work. 

I'm a little late as I've been busy baking cakes for Macmillan Coffee Morning. The actual morning was Friday but I've pledged a few large cakes for individual donations which I'm delivering over the next few days. 

Anyway my Smalls this month are my Jardin Prive 12 Days piece for September, nine ladies dancing and my Happy New Year for the Topsy Turvy SAL.

I think this is my favourite so far in this set, it has everything in it: flowers, sun, nature and the joy of dancing. Whilst on holiday I saw the perfect tin for my 12 Days ornaments, it has toffees and fudge in but I bought it for the tin ... I guess I'll have to eat the sweets to empty the tin hee hee

The first month of Topsy Turvy SAL was New Year; this SAL is on Facebook, here in Blogland a d on Needlecraft Haven so you can join in anywhere, any month. Posting is 20th of each month and this month the Facebook page has five participants so far ... all different and not all stitching. 

My piece was cross stitch, I took it on our holiday to Scotland and managed to get the gold wording stitched. If you would like to read about our travels I'll be blogging on Aimetu's - wine, food and travel, it will take me a while to blog about it all so keep popping back.

Thank you to everyone who joined in TTSAL this month, next month is Valentine's. 


  1. Clare: Nine Ladies Dancing is so sweet.
    That tin is amazing, what a fun look and filled with some goodies to eat.
    Happy New Year is also a sweet design.


  2. I love your tin! 12 days is a favorite theme of mine! Alas I have never stitched a set of them yet! I joined your Topsy Turvy SAL on Facebook. I won't be able to participate every month but I do like stitching out of season. Thanks for joining the SAL!

  3. That tin is perfect for the ornaments to live in! I'm considering that series next year but there's another one I like too.
    I do have a design picked for the TT this month.
