2016 - January SAL Small
January was off to a great stitching start for smalls & completions. 
Here is my January Smalls SAL: 

From the October 2015 Cross Stitch Crazy Magazine:
February Calendar Girl
Size: 50 x 50
She was sent out as my Valentine Orni-Exchange along with some Chocolate Chai tea.

The other January Completions can be broken up in to 2 parts; the new starts with a quick finish and the ones I now get to scratch off the WIPs/UFO Follow List.

2 From the Stoney Creek 2015 Autumn Magazine.
Family Roots:

and Snow Angels: 
and Margaret Sherry's: My Cup of Tea

WIPS/UFO's List Scratchers:
  PINN: Yellow Flower Bookmark
(a 2015 Start)
Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery:
Fiber Friends
(a 2015 Start)

and Sweet Pea
(a 2015 Start....then wait for baby to arrive)

Then of course there are the New Starts I've begun through out the month that are all at various stages of completion on top of the other WIPs/UFO's I've been putting some stitches into. I'm hoping to get most of these completed by the end of February as I replenish with some Feb Starts. *haha*
