Welcome to the last Wednesday of the month! It is time for the Smalls SAL check-in! This month I stitched Teresa Wentzler’s Tulip Basket, another design from way back. It comes from the May 1989 issue of Country Stitch Monthly. I’m not even sure I was cross stitching when it was released. I was too busy playing with Barbies, probably. 😉
It is stitched with DMC as per the pattern on white evenweave. It was pretty quick to stitch, although the backstitching was a bit hard to follow. I have forgotten how confusing some old charts can be. The print quality just isn’t as nice as more modern charts.
So, what have you stitched for this month’s Smalls SAL? I can’t wait to see. Be sure to leave your link in the form below. (That also gets you an entry into the year-end draw.) And, while your here, please leave a comment if you’d like, and maybe visit some of the other participants.
Next check-in: April’s check-in will be on 30th. You’ve got lots of time, but don’t forget Easter will be happening next month. Plan your stitching accordingly. 😉
