June Smalls Update

Happy Thursday!
Today is check-in day for Stitching Lotus's Smalls SAL...
(I've missed the last couple check-ins, so I was really pleased that I had time to get some "smalls' completed this month.)

My "smalls' projects for this update are from the Etsy shop dinosaur spaceshop...
Mini Star Wars spaceships!

There are 6 different patterns and I have completed 2 of them...
...mini Millennium Falcon

(Just to show the size of the finished ship.)

...and, a mini Death Star


Having a lot of fun working on these projects...
...they are really cute and stitch up fairly quickly. (The 2 I've completed took around 4 -5 hours each.)

...

Besides my small projects, I've been working on a few other projects...
My princess Ariel piece is coming along really well.
-where I left off-

-where I am now-
"EYE see you!"

(Pattern by Stitchering on Etsy)

Then I started a new mommy and baby set...
Mommy and baby fox...

(Pattern is from Cross Stitcher magazine, issue number 302)

Lastly, I started a new project...
It will be a cute, green dinosaur...

(Pattern is from Daily Cross Stitch)

So, that is what I've been up to...
Otherwise, it has been a rough couple of days.  My back went out, so I haven't been able to do much and I think I've come down with a touch of the flu.  Hopefully a little rest and I will be as good as new in a couple days.

Thanks to everyone for stopping by and I hope everybody has a great weekend.

  7. I LOVE those mini spaceships (although technically the Death Star isn't a spaceship - it's a Death Star LOL). I think I might need to get them. Thanks for the link.
    Ariel is quite freaky with that one large eye though, I am sure she will look lovely with two of them!

    1. Thanks Jo!
      Ariel is definitely a tad creepy with only one eye, but I love the blue color used in it. (I think it is one of my new favorite floss colors.)

  8. Great progress on your WIPs esp. Ariel, I agree, she needs to have the other eye pronto, haha.

      Definitely have to put in more work on Ariel, so she doesn't look so scary. :)
