Into the Jungle SAL – April

I seem to be making good progress on my Into the Jungle SAL. April is now all finished and I’ve been gradually working on the header. I love stitching this so much and is probably the reason why I’m able to keep up with it. It’s so nice after a busy, stressful day to curl…… Continue reading Into the Jungle SAL – April

Into the Jungle SAL – March

How cute is this little tree frog from this month’s Into the Jungle block!? I really enjoyed stitching this one so much so I pretty much did it in one day. I couldn’t pull myself away, just saying to myself 5 more minutes! It took me back to our honeymoon in Cuba, where one evening…… Continue reading Into the Jungle SAL – March

Into the Jungle SAL – February

Following on from the super cute sloth of last month’s block are 3 bright and colourful Toucans who are apparently the national birds of Belize. I’m not really a fan of green but I’m actually really liking stitching all the different leaves and trees. Just as well really considering it is jungle themed! ūüėÜ I’m…… Continue reading Into the Jungle SAL – February

Happily Ever After SAL – Around the World in 80 Days

I didn’t expect to finish this one so soon, especially as I started the month behind, but here it is… April’s block – Around the World in 80 Days! This was a nice quick and easy little stitch.

Happily Ever After – The Owl and the Pussycat

I think it is my favourite pattern yet! You can’t really see in this picture (and I…… Continue reading Happily Ever After – The Owl and the Pussycat
