Was it really just last week that I was excitedly running about buying and wrapping last minute gifts, organising bedrooms, cooking food and adding decorative Christmas touches to the house? Now that the extra chairs have gone back into storage and the plates and cutlery sorted and put away once again, I was beginning to wonder if I had imagined the delightful company of seven family members including three youngsters here last week, until my doubts dissipated this morning when I trod on a solitary plastic wheel from a dismembered toy car. Where did everyone go? Where did the days go?
Today is the December Smalls check-in. I didn´t have much time this month for stitching but I did sew up this little design which I had discarded to the UFO drawer.
This is The Lavender Girl, a free pattern from The Snowflower Diaries.
I discarded the design because I wasn´t pleased with my choice of fabric as the arms and legs are barely visable. She is barefoot in the original pattern but I added shoes so you can at least distinguish where her legs end.
Heather at Stitching Lotus hosts the Smalls SAL which will continue in 2015. So if you would like to join this group and stitch a little something each month, just click on my sidebar button and get yourself signed up.
The check-in for the Totally Useless SAL was last week when I had so little time to get to my computer, so I´m really late in showing my ORTs jar, but here it is.
You can find out more about this SAL which will also continue next year, by visiting Sharon at It´s Daffycat - just click on my sidebar button.
Wishing all my blogging friends and visitors a very Happy New Year.
