February Smalls SAL

I didn´t do a post for the January Smalls SAL as I got railroaded by the winter blues which monotonously insist on visiting me each winter and have me dragging myself about until the arrival of Spring. This month I did manage to finish off a couple of designs that I started many years ago.  One is the Lord´s Prayer.



and the other is of The Ten Commandments.



 I found a couple of old frames which I thought ideal although perhaps a bit small.





The Smalls SAL is hosted by Heather at  Stitching Lotus, so if you would like to stitch a little something or other each month, just click on the link  and join us.

For those of you who have a surplus of bright happy weather and sunshine, please send some to Gijon, Asturias, Spain,  where it has been raining since Christmas - many thanks.     Until next time

  18. Your finishes are both lovely, Sheryl--the beaded flowers around the border make them even more special :) I'm sorry the winter blues have hit you--I've been pretty good this year in spite of our record low temps and snow. We are due to hit -7° tomorrow (-21C). At least I can sit in my warm house and stitch :)

  24. Your finishes are so lovely!

    And, believe me, I understand the winter blues. January was terrible for me, and February wasn't much better. But, March is here and better weather is on the way. Right?

  31. There are both lovely pieces! I don't believe I have ever seen the design before. Also thanks for your comments on my blog but I am not sure I understand what you mean by "no reply" or how to fix it. Mare
