Hello, Smalls Stitchers! It is time for the March check-in. Are you excited? I sure am!
Easter is just around the corner. And, although we had snow last night and cold, cold rain this morning, spring is actually here. So, of course I wanted to stitch something that is bright, cheerful, and brings to mind the season.
The design is Hip Hop, a limited edition kit from Lizzie*Kate. The kit included the fabric (both the cotton and the linen) and the ribbon. I stitched it using the DMC conversion rather than using over-dyed thread, and I left out the words “hippity hoppity”.
I am very happy with how it turned out. Although it is hard to tell from my terrible picture (which I blame on my procrastination and the very overcast day), I finished it into a very cute little pillow. And, without even trying, I manged to line up the stripes on the front and back fabric perfectly! Yay!
So, what did you stitch this month? I honestly can’t wait to see. Please add your link to the list you will find at the bottom of this post. Please remember to use the permalink for your blog post and to use an image of your finish as your thumbnail. Also, please either use your blog’s name or your own name in the Name field on the form, whichever your perfer. If you run into any problems at all please feel free to email me.
The link list will stay open to new entries until about midnight Eastern time on April 8th. So, you’ve still got lots of time to get your small finished up. Remember: you get one entry into the end of the year draw for every month that you share a link to your finished small.
Next Month: The next check-in will take place on Friday, April 28th.
Thanks again, Stitchy Friends, for taking part in the Smalls SAL! If you have a little bit of time, please consider visiting some of the other participants and leave some comments.
