April's January Pick

Hi All,

I am April and I live in IL.  I am a SAHM to my son who is 8 and daughter who is 6 and have been married to my DH for 9 years. I love Halloween, so this SAL is perfect for me.

The picture is not the best, but my first piece is by Plum Street Samplers and the leaflet is called Stranded Jacks.  I am stitching the mermaid with the pumpkins under her for my January piece.  The fabric is 36 ct. and I am using a mixture of CC, WDW and GAST for the threads.  You can see on the fabric, the little start I have had on it today so far.

I am excited to see what everyone else is stitching and also to share my finishes with you.


  1. What a neat looking ornament. That looks like it will be fun to stitch. Enjoy.

  2. Looking forward to seeing this one finished. Good luck!

  3. What a fun combo -- pumpkins and mermaids

  4. I've never seen these patterns. They look absolutely adorable. Can't wait to see it done.
