Small SAL - January


Here is my first Small for the year. I found the pattern on Pinterest, but here is a direct link to the pattern. The pattern itself is in black and white, and since I was using the same fabric as Flower Patch (by Papillon Creations) one of my older WIPs, whose colors I LOVE, I decided to re-use the same colors. I stitched it over 1 so that it would be small enough for a biscornu and except for the lighter green of the leafs at the center I really love how it came out.


To make this SAL go as smoothly as possible, I've already planned on what I want to stitch for February, March and April. I figure a three month padding would give me enough time to decide what I want to do for later months and not have late starts. Right now, I'm trying to pick patterns that fit the months they will be stitched in.
