Working through the Wips

Whoop! 1st WIP finish of the new year. "Tranquillity" by Ship's Manor. I stitched it on Jazz Aida & it will finally go to the kid's bus driver.

 I added the phrase "Today is Beautiful" in Hawaiian to fill up a bit more of the empty space. While this photo looks grey, the frame is actually a blue colour. It went to Leah, my brother Jon's GF.

And for my participation in this years Smalls SAL by Stitching Lotus: Here are some of the smalls I was able to do this month.
We support 4 children through World Vision. One of our girls is celebrating her birthday next month so I've stitched up this bag to hold her marbles in. 

Another little quick stitch for a customer who complained they felt left out from not getting an ornament year

I finished off Ray's little Bumble Bit pillow for blessing me with a couple of these 2L buckets of his delicious honey each year.

And last but not least.....This spiralled Fox 

There have been others I've put a couple stitches into but not made much leeway. There was a drastic number error in the Supernatural piece I was working on for my daughter and now I will have to start all over again. The designers digital copy did not print out properly and shaved off at least 4 lines through the middle of the pattern so when I went to add the words into the shelf, there wasn't enough space. *waaaa*
