February Smalls Check-In...

Good afternoon!
It is time again for a Smalls SAL check in...
(The smalls SAL is hosted by Heather from Stitching Lotus.)

I once again picked a project that was just a tad too big for this challenge, but I had a wonderful time working on it...
There is Mr. Owl, next to what he'll look like when he is finished.
(The pattern is from the Cross Stitcher magazine, issue number 300.)

I actually got quite a bit more done then I thought I would...

-where I left off-

-where I am now-
So, he will move into my WIP pile.
(I do hope to finish him soon, because I absolutely love the colors of floss used in the project.)

Well, I have picked a new Smalls piece for March and I think I did a much better job picking an actual 'small' piece...
...crossing my fingers that I will actually get it finished!

Back to work for me...
...hope everyone has a fantastic day!


  1. Great work on the owl. I love the colours too. I went off that magazine a while back so it's nice to see that they still have some good designs.

  2. This is a great Owl. I do think the colors are great.

  3. Never mind that you didn't finish him Carrie. You made a good start and he still looks rather splendid. :)

  4. It's not finish but nevertheless, looks so sweet already!
    The colours are lovely and it's an owl :)

  5. Gorgeous stitching! I love that project, I think it's so cute. Can't wait to see your progress! :D

  6. Good work. You made a great start. And, it is definitely a bit tricky to pick just the right sized design, especially when the month is a little shorter than usual.

  7. Beautiful design, great progress. The colors are pretty too:)
