Easter has arrived in part four of our 12-month seasonal SAL, featuring a cute Easter chick, an Easter egg and beautiful flowers, including a tulip – sure signs of spring! Stitch this as part of the SAL with all 12 months, or on its own as a standalone piece – the choice is yours!

If you're following the stitch-a-long you'll carry on working on the same piece of fabric as you did for 'March', building up the months as you go to create one, long, striking design.

You will need

  • 'April' chart (download below)
  • Fabric – 14 count blue aida (15x18cm (6x7in) for individual design, OR carry on working on 100x20cm (39½x8in) if completing all 12 months on the same piece) 
  • 24 tapestry needle
  • Stranded cotton colours listed in the key (see PDF)
  • A hoop for individual months or frame for the complete 12 months
