The Smalls SAL is hosted by Mary's Thread
This year my Smalls will be the Stoney Creek 12 Days of Christmas 2019 Ornament series which I started on Boxing Day 2020 for the 12 Days of Stitchmas.
August was Eight Maids A'Milking, well only one maid and no cows:
I added August to my Tiny Modernist Calendar:
stitched on 32 count Summer Sky Belfast linen from Silkweavers
I continued with The Primitive Hare Celebrations series, catching up with Beltane from May:
stitched on 35 count Cream Linen
Finally, I got some photos of the Chinese Thread Box I made for my friend's Birthday in July. This is made entirely by folding paper, no glue or tape and there are 31 boxes. I had hoped to put some skeins of DMC in the boxes but it made them too bulky to close so I popped in stickers and charms instead.
The whole box:
There are 16 boxes this size:
8 boxes this size:
4 boxes this size:
2 boxes this size:
and 1 large box which forms the base of the piece:
This is the tutorial I followed to make it:
My paper was a little thicker than they used, so I didn't make the fancy flower shapes on the top 16 boxes!
