This stitchalong is for all the stitchers out there! Based on some discussion in 2022, the “stitch” in this stitchalong is being defined as anything with machine embroidered or hand embroidered elements. While we do have a monthly theme, stitchers do not need to stitch to the theme in order to participate. Feel free to post your current WIP, ask questions, or share resources! However, only new stitches that fit the theme will be entered into our monthly and quarterly drawings.
Monthly Themes New themes will be selected each month. Stitches posted during the month that are new and on theme will be entered into a pool from which one winner will be randomly selected each month. Winners are responsible for selecting the next month’s theme!
April:The Beautiful Side of Bad WeatherWinner: jemimah
May:I need a holiday!Winner: Abbeeroad
June:Inspired by books! Stitch up a cozy reading spot, a stack of books, an inspiring quote, a far off land, a favorite character, or even a textbook diagram or dictionary definition. If it’s book related, it counts!
Quarterly Drawings All members who have posted a new stitch that fits the monthly theme will be entered into a quarterly drawing to win a donated crafty prize! Drawings will take place in March, June, September, and December of 2023. Please note, projects that are posted as entries to other contests on Lettuce Craft will be excluded from our quarterly drawings.
I’m participating in the CrossStitcher SAL 2023. I don’t have a lot of supplies with me right now but I figured this would be a great project - just one little house every month. Chart #3 has just been published and I’m still working on #1 but that doesn’t matter.
The sampler is 12 houses typical for certain areas of the UK, pictured with seasonal flowers. This one is Edinburgh, the two other ones already published are Harrogate and London.
