Smalls of the month

It was June when I last showed you my seasonal display of cross-stitch smalls, I know because June’s smalls were still out a week ago! July and August went by in a bit of a blur with things going on at home, changing my smalls seemed the least of my problems!!! Luckily with the new month and new season my brain fog has lifted and I feel more my usual self…so here’s September’s smalls!

I’ve put all my autumn ones out – goodness knows what I’ll put out in October and November! I turned the two cross-stitch boxes round to their autumn side, the one on the left with a very cute squirrel is the Zoe box, a SAL by Faby Reilly a couple of years ago, the one on the right is a Betsy Morgan design I did about three years ago.

The pretty autumn wreath is another Faby Reilly design, it was a freebie a couple of years ago, the other autumn one with the blackbird on was a SAL on Thea Dueck’s facebook page. The pretty daisy pillow was a kit I was given a few years back.

The September pillow is from the Snowflower Diaries Joy to the World SAL, I stitched most of these a couple of years ago but I still have November and December to stitch! The jug of flowers was a mini kit I bought at Bonds, which used to be a lovely old-fashioned, rummagy sort of haberdashers in Farsley, sadly it’s now closed.

Hopefully I’m now back on track with my seasonal smalls- it’s just been one of those years!

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!

    It’s lovely to see your Autumn collection and recall when you were stitching each of them. Thank you! I noticed some leaves starting to fall here whilst checking the mail today. Our trees, if they change colour at all, won’t do so for another 2-3 months. šŸ˜± So seeing your collection is a very welcome sight!

    Perhaps seasons rather than months is the way to go whilst busy! They all look great.
