I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

August Smalls Update

The Smalls SAL is hosted by Stitching Lotus

It's time for a catch up on my Smalls stitching for the month of August.  I only managed one complete finish for the month.... very disappointing effort! 😢😞

Free Gift - Cross Stitcher Magazine (Issue June 2000)
Designer: Angela Poole

"Beside the Sea"
Started: 5 January 2016
Finished: 8 August 2017

I love the little buttons that were included in the kit... I very nearly didn't sew them onto this little small as I thought I could use them for something else... but they do just finish off the design. Now I just have to decide how to frame it.... I am thinking something like a beach theme frame with a distressed paint look... but that's for another day!

To see everyone else's Smalls posts for August pop over to Heather's blog and check out the link up post

Next Month – The next Smalls SAL check-in will take place on Friday, 29th September 2017.

Til next time, happy stitching!
Hugs xx


  1. Oh this is darling Noni. I think the buttons really make the piece!

  2. Such a cute stitch! I agree the buttons are really adorable.

  3. This a really sweet stitch, Leonie.

  4. I stitched this one when it was first released! I love the buttons too.
