July Smalls SAL post

My July small for the Smalls SAL run by Heather of Stitching Lotus:
August, from Prairie Schooler's "Summer & Winter" (book 91). This was a Stitch Maynia 2017 start, stitched on thirty-something count Beachwalk by Under the Sea Fabrics, using the charted DMC. The only change I made was to swap the snail body color with the snail shell whorl color. As charted, the snail's body would have been the same color as the frog, which seemed weird to me.

Another small completed this month is Mill Hill's Flamingo:
I went ahead and finished it as a magnet, and will give it to my mom for her birthday in October.


  1. I have that same chart and hope to get to it one day. I like the changes you made to the snails body. I love flamingo's also and I am sure your mom will love it.

  2. Both your stitchy pieces look great. Love the PS design.

  3. Way to go on both your finishes! I like the snail color change along with the fabric you used for it. Enjoy your weekend!

  4. Two really great finishes. Love those legs LOL.

  5. Two sweet finishes this month, well done
