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.


  1. What a cute little finish :) Sounds really handy to have a small stash of those quick and easy projects at hand.

  2. What a lovely idea. pretty card.

  3. Pretty card. I know your friend will love it.

  4. Cute card. I have all my cover kits in a little box too.

  5. Darn he is just darling! I know how those WIPs suck up time. It is nice to slide in a little piece each month..... keeps my hopes up that I can actually *finish* something. :)
