I’m working on another yearlong cross stitch project (see last year’s Once Upon a Time sampler here) but this one is a bit more laid back since it’s an older pattern and I don’t have to wait for the mystery blocks to be revealed each month. I love Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery‘s Woodland Creatures sampler, it is so super cute!
I lost a bit of momentum on this project in October when I got distracted by holiday cross stitch projects – A Little Boo for Halloween and Give Thanks for Thanksgiving. But even though I’m a couple weeks late, I finally finished up the October block. I like Owls just fine, but this block wasn’t as exciting for me as previous months, which is probably why I procrastinated so much. I watched a lot of The Great British Bake Off to power through. I also discovered I was one stitch off when I made the frame back in January, and didn’t realize it until is was too late… the month name is squished as a result, but I decided to leave it as-is. Ah well, onward and upward to the next month!
Below are a few progress pics:
Here are the finished months so far:
We’re really nearing the end now… ten months down, only two to go!
I’ll be sure to share my monthly progress, similar to last year. Stay tuned!
