2018 Smalls SAL Update for September

Hello Friends; Hope all is well with you? 
I've been having issues with my desktop PC (it's my backup) and we went camping over the weekend so my Smalls SAL update is a few days late. If things go as planned my laptop will be in the shop today, after being down for a year, to find out if it can be fixed or if a new laptop is a better choice. It only lasted about 3 years before it started having issues, it is an HP. Might want to get the desktop PC fixed instead, it's one my hubs put together for me and has lasted far longer (all most 10 years) before it started having little issues. 

So on to the 2018 Smalls SAL update for September.
There are three stitched finishes all free charts from The Primitive Hare.

First is Samhain for the Halloween season.

"Samhain" by The Primitive Hare

Stitched on 16 count black Aida using DMC Color Variations and a grey DMC solid. Added the leaf for an extra bit of fall, don't know if it will stay or not.

I stitched this next on twice.

"Merry Solstice" by The Primitive Hare
 
Stitched on 28 count Monaco in beige using DMC Gold metallic. Will add the snowflakes for a taste of winter and turn it into a flat hanging piece to add to my door wreath.
And the second version

"Merry Solstice" by The Primitive Hare
 
Stitched over one on the same 28 count Monaco in beige using one of my own hand-dyed threads. I will also add the snowflakes again for a wintry touch and turn it into a stuffed ornament for the tree.
 
That's all for today's post, so until next time......
 
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Take Care & Happy Stitchin'
Hugs, Sandy

  4. Lovely designs. It's amazing how different the same design looks when it's stitched using different threads.

  5. With each one of my laptops, I started having problems around years 3-5, so I'm not surprised you have issues. Hopefully, it can be fixed.

    Nicely done on your Smalls.
