Since the IGGPCamp sigil cross stitch project was such a big hit and many people expressed interest in doing more, I’ve decided to organize a pattern-of-the-month for you to stitch. So let’s get stitching, and check out this the autumn-themed September cross stitch pattern.
The patterns will be kept relatively simple so that anyone may participate in the stitch-along. Polls will occur on my Twitter (@whoahZoe) to help determine the monthly patterns; suggestions are welcome!! My goal is for it to be a mixture of seasonal/holiday patterns and various fandoms.
