Back to school time and we know that some of you will be celebrating! The 'September' cross stitch chart download, part of the 12-month stitch-a-long (SAL) with Susan Penny and Willow Fabrics, features traditional school imagery and will look fab amongst the full collection!
Summer is nearly over and unbelievably we're already in part nine of your 12-month seasonal SAL courtesy of Susan Penny. Still in summery colours this month it's all about back to school! Stitch this as part of the SAL with all 12 months, or on its own as a standalone piece.
If you're following the stitch-a-long you'll carry on working on the same piece of fabric as you did for 'August', building up the months as you go to create one, long, striking design.
You will need
- 'September' 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
So that you can buy just a metre of fabric for this sampler, you will have only 5cm (2in) above and below the finished design, so you should count carefully before you begin stitching.
Short of supplies? Willow Fabrics to the rescue!
