Into the Jungle Cross Stitch: Leopard

The main cross stitch project I worked on in 2018 was the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery’s Into the Jungle yearlong stitchalong (SAL) club. I finished up the last animal in the first few weeks of 2019, but I’m still not quite done… just the bottom border to go, and then my year in the jungle will officially be complete.

The twelfth animal released was a lovely leopard, and I really enjoyed stitching up another big cat. I didn’t have much time to stitch between the holidays and travel of December, but when our regular routine started up again in January, I finally had time to work on the last animal. I’ll share one last post when the bottom border is done! Since I’m not working on a yearlong SAL in 2019, I’m looking forward to starting a new project from my backlog of patterns.
