Smalls SAL- February

Just to see the sun these past four days has made me realise that it has been absent for over two months, substituted by rain and clouds.  Someone must have seen it somewhere, but it certainly didn´t make an appearance here. However, wherever it went, this week it has returned, spreading sunshine and warmth over the land and brightening our winter laden spirits.  It even motivated DH to don his neglected overalls, arm himself with pruning shears and with a determined air, cut back the wakening fruit trees, crop grape vines and trim all disobedient rampant greenery in sight.  With resign, learnt by frowns of bygone years, he left the pruning of the roses to me.
Inspired by the thought that Spring isn´t so far away, my chosen Smalls design is called `Bouquets of Joy´, which is a digital stamp set from Crafty Secrets.

I started the design ages ago with the idea of making it into a birthday card, but somehow never got around to it, so I have finished it off and just put it in a frame.

I used a variety of embroidery stitches in different colours and added a few tiny beads.

Maybe one day if I need a special card I will use the design.

I have been told that my mail is showing as `no-reply´ Sorry if someone has tried to contact me.  Google+ seems to automatically change my mail settings every month.  Hope to get this sorted out.

Happy stitching, until next week.


  1. Oh Sheryl, such a lovely piece for the Smalls SAL. I love that bouquet of flowers and each flower stitched with specialty stitches. Beautiful.
    I hope that the technician could finally sort out your problem.

  2. That is a lovely little stitching. Such pretty flowers. Sending warm wishes your way. Tammy

  3. What a sweet finish! So lovely.

  4. I guess my first reply was one that was lost! Your finish is absolutely adorable! I really admire all your specialty stitches! Great job, Sheryl!

    Good luck with all the tech problems. Ugh!
