The Snowflower Diaries Joyful World SAL

Back in January I started stitching a SAL( Stitch Along).
It is given for free by sweet Maja of The Snowflower Diaries blog and thousands of stitchers around the world are stitching along this beautiful calendar.
You can join in here on facebook.
You can find more lovely designs by Maja on her etsy shop too.
I am using some fabric I already had which I am not sure what it is but it looks like 28count. 
I coffee dyed it.
I printed my first month and I started using the threads I already had.
Barca keeps me company while I stitch.
Although I am not used to stitching on such high count I managed to finish the first month very quickly because only a couple of days later the second month was coming.
 February was stitched fast as well. Always with Barca next to me.
 February finished.
Every pattern is introduced in the group on facebook on the 10th of the previous month.
And here's March, so sweet.
Barca looked anxiously to see the next month completed.
 No in fact she was looking at my snack.
 And here's April completed.
I have already printed the pattern of May but haven't managed to start it yet!

Barca is adorable 😊
Loving your stitching, well done for stitching on higher count fabric, it looks really good 😊
I am behind myself as I have not stitched May yet!
Happy stitching 😊

What an original idea! April was beautiful, with the rabbit and the squirrel.

Those are just beautiful-what a fun sew along and I love Barca-our pets are always so sweet. I always admire those of you that can stitch with no pattern-awesome

Such sweet charts - are you stitching over one on 28 count? You must be crazy! Barca has such gorgeous eyes.
