January Smalls

I’ve just realised it’s the 25th January and I haven’t shown you my smalls yet!! OK so I was a bit late putting them out, what with Christmas and the like, but here they are…

January smalls

I seem to have lots of summery ones, and Easter or Christmas ones, not so much for the gloomy months like January so it’s a bit of a mixed bag!! I’ve turned my two seasonal boxes round to winter, one is an etui by Betsy Morgan, the other is my most recent finish by Faby Reilly, the gorgeous Zoe Box, showing the cute robin at the moment.

The big one is a Lizzie Kate design which always seems pretty apt for January! The cream cat is a needlepoint I stitched about 30 years ago, but finally made up last year! January is from the Snowflake Diaries SAL called Joyful World. The little gingerbread house is actually a Christmas decoration I made years ago, the embroidered cottage is also from many years ago.

The beady eyed amongst you will have noticed that the snowdrop one above is not in the photo – well it will be as soon as I find it! I’m hoping to make the January cross-stitch for the Anthea SAL into a mini pillow just in time too…

I’ve got plans for my February smalls, hopefully you won’t have to wait another month to see them!

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!
