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!

Smalls SAL June 2016

Hosted by Stitching Lotus
And before we know it.... another month has gone by!  June's Smalls posting day was 30th June but as you can see I am a little bit late posting (it is probably still 30th June somewhere in the world though!)

I have quite a few smalls this month to show you... much better than last month's effort!!

Earlier this month I showed you my finishes #17 & #18.  I finished these 2 after posting May's Smalls penguin card update... so here's a recap of them:
Finish #17: Mosey n Me - Christmas Test Drive
Finished 27 May 2016
Finish #18: Penguin Christmas Card (freebie)
Finished 29 May 2016
Now onto June's Smalls...  these are all June starts and finishes :o)

Til then, happy Smalls stitching...

  1. Hi Noni, so many lovely smalls! Happs stitching!

  2. The tartan stocking caught my eye right away - and isn't it wonderful to stitch a project from an Issue that is 10 years old. Sugar Cane Crunch is the best name for fabric for a Christmas Time Stitch. Thank you for sharing your wonderful smalls

  3. Lots of beautiful finishes. Great job!!

  4. Great Smalls! And it's not just the months that whizz by, it's actually TWENTY years since the 1996 issue. How can that be? The 90's were only last year, surely. We are starting to get job applications from people born in the 2000s which is truly scary!

  5. Lovely small finishes Noni.Hope you are feeling better after your surgery.

  6. Adorable Christmas smalls, great job:)

  7. Nice selection of smalls this time.

  8. What a great selection of smalls! I love the Mosey n Me one. I remember stitching that penguin years ago. I wonder where it is now?!

  9. You have been busy! And all so lovely. Well done! I did enjoy my visit to your blog.

  10. Oh my, so many lovely finishes for the Smalls SAL. Great job!

  11. I really like that Mosey n Me. You deserved the extra day to get so many things finished!
