The People Chose 🦓

Here's another SAL month with Jo @ Serendipitous Stitching and this time it's Monochrome stitching. I didn't think I had very much, but was surprised at what I found.

As you can see, I made this in 1989, for my parents. Felt like yesterday! I ended up making one for a neighbour too, they had a lovely black cat named Boo so I added that to the blocks.

This is one that Gman2 asked me to make for his friend.

I made this one when the Gmen were in middle school, it was supposed to be for their band teacher when they graduated 8th grade. It looks like I'm giving it to her before Nathan graduates! I still have to add the charms and I thought about adding the concerts they performed and the places they went by stitching them along the border.

I made this one a while ago and still have to properly frame it.

A freebie I finished in time for St. Patrick's Day, but still need to fully finish.

I think that's it, take a look and see what everyone else stitched.
Next month... Bees!


  1. Awesome projects Astrid.


  2. You have stitched some lovely monochromatic pieces!! I like to do them every so often, they are relaxing to me.

  3. I honestly don't think I could come up with a single monochrome pieces I've done, so I'm impressed with what you've done.

  4. Great pieces Astrid! I especially like the Christmas Bells though Godzilla did make me giggle!

  5. Thanks for taking part in The People's Choice this month. I did copy you for the banner this time!
    It's surprising how many monochrome pieces we have when we actually look back. Love Godzilla and the JBW. I could have posted all 12 of my Monthly JBW cats too!

Thanks for all your amazing rawrs!
