Z is for Zebra!

So very late posting! But I have a reason, which you shall see :D

Z is for Zebra, first - there are some super cute zebras out there!

What I could not actually find was a realistic Zebra.  It's one of the reasons that I wanted a horse pattern - I want to make a horse, and then mod it into a Zebra.  So, yup!  Totally bought this the other day:

(I bought the expansion pack, too, 'cause I wanna make a Pegasus).  But someday, hopefully soon, you'll see a wee horse on my blog!  And then a Zebra to go with him!

Here's the reason I'm late posting, though - my Turtle has lost his kitty friend (it stayed in my house about three seconds after my sister saw it) but has gained a new buddy to stand by his side :D

From this angle, you can see that Currently Nameless Dragon needs his wings and toes blocked, still. I didn't want to do it before sewing them on because you have to practically squoosh them to get them in place, and then I didn't want to wait to post about him while they dried.  So that's on my to-do list.

But he's super cute and I'm very pleased with him!

So that's it for the April A-Z challenge!  I'm pretty happy with how it went, and only three new patterns got added to my collection so far (although there are a lot more on my wish list).  The horse was one, here's the other two:

I had no plans to add any but the horse, but these two were on my favorites list and went on sale for $1 apiece.  Wasn't passing that up!

So tomorrow starts the Stitch Maynia challenge - there'll be a big upswing in cross stitch projects!  A lot of people are starting one every day of the month, but I'm going to stick with five.  Possibly six, but I doubt it :D

Happy Stitching, everyone!



  1. I love the penguin! So cute! And with the scarf you can do in different colors you could create a whole Antarctica! Love the dragon too :)

  2. Good luck with Stitch Maynia. I belong to the group but I don't really know what the challenge is about so I'll just be watching from the sidelines! That dragon is soooo cute!!! And the penguin!!!! Congratulations on finishing A-Z. I enjoyed the cuteness so much.

  3. Awesome finish to a great A-Z. Huge congrats on finishing the fantastic dragon! I hope you get to keep him. :)

  4. Sorry your kitty ran away Tama but I love your dragon. I have enjoyed reading your post all month. I look forward to seeing some of those critters crocheted.


  5. How cute! I used to cross stitch many years ago, but I don't remember doing any 3D stuff. Several Christmas stockings, however!

  6. Congrats on finishing the challenge! Thanks for all the great new ideas!

  7. The zebras are very cute, and I look forward to seeing how you modify the horse to turn him into a zebra :)

    Congratulations on surviving the A-Z challenge!
