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!
