Smalls SAL September Check-in


Hello Friends,

Its last friday of the month , time to show what smalls we stitched during the month. I'm participating first time in Smalls SAL this year hosted by Heather. I decided to join this SAL as I usually stitch birthday cards or exchange pieces throughout the year and this gives me an additional chance to blog.

My craft group will be participating and selling stuff to raise money for charity in a monthly bazaar organized by a local art studio.
I stitched these simple cards , quick and easy to make , to be sold in the bazaar tomorrow.


It was a set of 6 ready to stitch cards , one of which I changed to a birthday card and sent to my snail mail friend in Japan.



I'm hoping the bazaar attracts good audience , please check Kuwait Crafters on Instagram to see the beautiful creations which will be showcased in the bazaar .

I can't believe that we are in the last quarter of the year. Its time to check the wishlist which was made in the start of the year and see where I stand.

Thank you for all the lovely comments on my last blog post , I appreciate them. Also I see have a new follower, though I can't tell who. If you are reading this,thanks for following .

Gifted Gorgeousness SAL September Update

Hello Friends,

It's that time of the month when we show what gifts we have been working on or/and what crafty gifts we have received. If you don't know what I'm talking about , check Jo's blog for more info. This is a easy SAL where you have choice to stitch any designer, color or pattern, just that it should be a gift for someone or gift from someone.


Today I have a finish to show you which is a gift for my mother's 60th birthday . Her birthday is on Monday, unfortunately I will not be with her that day physically but yes in spirit.

Here are some details

Project Name    Fabulous Florals
Start Date          4/13/2018
End date           9/11/2018
Stitch count       121H*129W
Designer           Claire Comerford
                                  Source              The World of Cross Stitching Issue 245
Fabric               18 ct white aida
Number of colors               35
Number of stitching days        55

I'm very happy with the result , though it was a bit challenging project with lots of fractional stitches , back stitching and some metallic . 

The fabric I used was a gift as was the magazine from which the pattern was chosen, so this project is a full blood GG project 😉

That's it my friends for today, I'm off to check other entries for the SAL.

Have a good weekend.
