As the song from Gilmore Girls says “So welcome to my little corner of the world”. It’s all about me and my crafting – focusing around my love for stitching and sewing along with anything else that catches my eye. So welcome, grab a coffee and happy reading.

Monochrome May wrap up

I've been a bit rubbish with Theme-a-licious the last couple of months, so when I was reading Heather's post on it this morning, I came up with a fab way to shoe-horn my stitching into the theme. My idea I had at the beginning of the year didn't happen. This was the theme, with my thoughts in green.

Monochrome May
Pick a color, any color, then stitch only on projects that contain that color for the month!
Maybe brown or blue so that could be the Giraffes or my HAED

Well neither of those happened but what I did achieve was to stitch 3 different projects in just one colour for each project. They may not have been one colour for the month (although I did initally want to go with black so I could do my sampler) but I did one in black, one in a very dark purple and the third (cue very, very big shoehorn) which I can share was stitched in a vari thread called Luna Park (by Dinky Dyes). By every stretch of the imagination possible this fits because the thread has one name therefore is one shade!!!! Told you it was a stretch even by Serendipidous Jo's standards (Sorry Jo!)

Right to the stitching. I can't share the black and purple ones as they are in the travelling box...well travelling, but here is the vari one. It was stitched for Lori's birthday earlier this week from a pattern by Steph.
Here is Wee Luna Faerie.

Here is June's theme...
Jumanji June
Is it a jungle out there in your stash? Give some love to the projects with animals or birds.
More projects than I thought have animals in them so either of the Giraffe projects or the Sampler

Shoehorning could be slightly harder here, I have 6 june projects in mind and only one contains an animal! One is better than none I guess!

Wish me luck!


  1. Cute finish! Shoehorn away, Kerry :D

  2. Aww cute fairy ❤❤❤

  3. Hiya, sorry to bother you but I,ve been trying to look at your post of the makes for the craft box ,every time I click on it , it says this post is not available , is it a fault on my part ?

  4. Absolutely gorgeous Kerry! The thread is just perfect for that project :-)

  5. Cute little pillow.

  6. Cheeky! Funnily enough, I also did a multi coloured project. I decided it was for Anti-Theme LOL.

    Next month I'll stitch animals and dead things for the anti theme, you think I'm joking? Wait for my Hallowe'en piece.

  7. Awww, that fairy is so cute. I still want to see the giraffes though - you know they're my favourite :-) x

  8. The fairy is really sweet :D Great work in May

  9. I love how you stitched that fairy ^_^

  10. LOL...I love it! I guess the multi-color was the "all for one and one for all" color, eh? =)


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. :-)
