Smalls SAL April
Most of my stitching time this month has been spent on WIPs but I did manage a small birthday card from a free kit which came with an old issue of Cross Stitcher magazine.
I have a stash of these card kits - if the chart isn't with the kit I photocopy the page from the magazine and file it with the kit. They are kept in a shoe box which is to hand when I need something quick and easy to stitch as I did this month. Because the fabric and threads are in the kit I can start stitching straightaway and I particularly like the ones that come complete with cards especially when they are illustrated like this one. I think it gives quite an impressive effect for just a few stitches.
It is for a Special Birthday (one of those that end in zero) for a friend who loves "messing around in boats".
Thanks for popping by.
