2014 Smalls SAL Update

Here is my 2014 Smalls SAL update for August. 
I seriously can not believe the year is over half-way over, where dose the time go.

I have two stitchin' finishes for August.

First Up:

"Sunflowers & Daisies"
 Designed by me and shared here on my blog. 

I did make a few changes from the original pattern, which is par for the course for me. I back stitched all the flower heads in dark brown and used an olive gold/green to back stitch the centers of the sunflowers {doesn't show well in the photo). I also added one stitch to the daisy stems and added another row of dirt plus altered the size of the "S's" and the word Daisies. 
Yep, all my charts are a work in progress while I'm stitchin' em'.

Next Up:

"Bee's & Sunflowers"
Designed by me as a companion piece to "Sunflowers & Daisies"

Both pieces are stitched on 14 count Aida hand-dyed by me with a light blue and stitched with DMC threads.

That's it for today, thanks for stopping by and possibly leaving your thoughts behind. Each and every one of them mean so very much to me.

Take Care & Happy Stitchin'
Hugs, Sandy
