Frosted Pumpkin Stitch-a-Long May

I’ve never joined a stitch-a-long before, and now this year I’ve somehow joined two! But how could I possibly resist the adorableness that is Amanda and Ashleigh’s Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery?

The Story Time Sampler┬áreleases a new kawaii-style motif from a classic children’s book each month for the year. I was a little late getting started on this one but am finally caught up.

Here’s where it’s at so far:

And the close up images for each month:

January – Alice in Wonderland

February – The Secret Garden

March – Sherlock Holmes

April – The Wizard of Oz

May – Charlotte’s Web

This is one of the most fun to stitch projects I’ve ever done, and once you get past the first month, which includes all the frames and the banner, each month’s installment only┬átakes a few nights to stitch. Meaning it’s a delightful distraction from whatever else I’m working on.
