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. 😉
I was subscribing to cross stitch magazines in 1989, maybe even that one. I agree about the backstitching being hard to follow. Nice finish!
Thank you for hosting the Small SAL all these while.. I’m not sure if I link up here?? Cos I can’t find the “form”

Nice and Spring-like! I would never have guessed it was a TW though.
Very cute design.
Take Care & Happy Stitchin’
Lovely garden. Can’t wait for spring to get here. Winter is hanging on for dear life.
What a pretty basket – it positively speaks of spring. Well done.
Congrats on the cute finish. Perfect for spring.
Very pretty! (:
i have completely failed to stitch a small this month! I might have to do two next month to make up for it!
Beautiful tulips 🙂
What a great finish! Perfect springy pick me up
April 30th will be extreamly busy for me… hopefully I can get my small done in the first part of April and schedule the post so I don’t miss it LOL
