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.

Theme-tas-stitch 2017

Here is the official Theme-tas-stitch page so sign up here to join in the madness...

The themes starting in February are:

Focus Finish February - 
Is there a WIP in your stash that you would love to get finished - then focus on a finish in February!
March Madness - 
Work on as many different projects in March - You could do one a day or have a day when you see how many you can stitch on.
April Showers - 
What pieces do you have that contain water? - It might be rain, river, sea or lake - see how many stitches you can make!
Monochrome May -
Choose a colour and stitch on your projects that contain that one colour.
 Jardin June -
Venture outdoors and put some stitches in a piece that has a garden or floral theme.
Just one July -
Pick a focus piece for the month and see how much progress you can make - show us before and after pictures if you can.
Animalia August -
Give some love to those projects with our furry or feathered friends.
 September Smalls -
What is the smallest stitch in your stash? Show us your smalls! 
Opulent October -
Break out the bling - stitch with beads, charms, metallics or on sparkly fabric.
No X November - 
Blackwork, Hardanger, pulled thread or speciality stitches the choice is yours or maybe it's time to tackle the backstitch on some of those almost finished projects.
Deck the Halls December -
Christmas is almost upon us so pull out those Christmas themed projects or stitch a new ornament for the tree. 

Q: Do you provide the charts? 
A: No - it's whatever you have in your stash that will fit the theme. You don't have to find something to stitch especially for this SAL (unless you want too)

Q: When do we post? 
A: Post on your blog on the 21st then hop over here to join the link up.

Q: Do I have to post each month?
A: No, if the theme doesn't appeal or fit with your stitching then skip a month, same as if life is too busy etc. It really is no pressure, just for fun.

So if you fancy joining me then sign up below and happy stitching.

(Edited) Please leave a comment if you can so I don't miss welcoming anyone who signs up.
