Smalls SAL, Stashbuster #1, and Start #28

It's check in day for the Smalls SAL hosted by Heather of Stitching Lotus. I'm so happy! It's my first cross stitch finish of 2015.
 This chart is a freebie by Erica Michaels and can be found here on Rainbow Gallery. My plan is to stitch the rest of the series for the SAL.

And I have my first crochet finish of 2015, too! It's been a good week :-) I'm linking it up with the Stashbuster Link Party over at Linda's Crafty Corner.
I made these slipper socks with Red Heart Super Saver in Carrot and Softelle in Peach Blossom; the two oranges are a lot darker than they look in the picture. You can find the pattern here. 

My SDUCJFC start today was another free kit from the garage sale.
#28: Cherished Teddies Around the World: Mexico
Thanks for reading and looking.
Blessings :-)

  3. I love the snowman and the little donkey is adorable. Great job on the slippers.... Orange is my favorite. My crochet skills are limited to things that are flat aka blankets and scarfs. LOL.

    1. Thanks :-) I mostly stick with flat crochet projects, too. These slippers are surprisingly easy to make, all one piece, all single crochets.
