All of the goodies I shared pictures of in my last few posts produced lots of orts and they had to have somewhere to go, so they were collected in my little ball jar to become my July TUSAL. Actually I missed posting my June TUSAL so this is a double dose.
I know this is not the same without Mr. Jenkins, he had another engagement and couldn't make this post.  He will be here next time.
I wanted to share my "Guardian Angel" the first face in Joan Elliott's (facebook group) Mystery SAL.  The skin is stitched one over one on 28ct evenweave.  One over one stitching took longer but it was well worth the time.  Of course now all the other faces will have to be stitched one over one.
There are beads to be added in the empty spaces at the end.  I love this one.

I am a member of several facebook stitching groups and the group that has the SWAT (stitch week -a-thon) several times a year decided that maybe cross stitchers should have an annual World Cross Stitch Day it is   the 8th of August. Hopefully this will help preserve the art of cross stitching and show the designers that we love what they do. If you are interested and have a facebook account go to the WCSD page and "like" the page. Join in the fun of stitching with other people all around the world.   Now back to making those wonderful little xxs. Thank you all for stopping by.

Now I see how the 1 over 1 works! I couldn't imagine how it would look different but it does. Great job.

Beautiful stitching!
The one over one on the skin is so delicate and pretty. I'll have to give it a try sometime.

Just gorgeous!

Your Fairy looks lovely. I am having a break from the face to stitch her hair today.

Thanks for sharing the information about WCSD, I've been doing my bit to promote it too, now I know where the group is!
