April Stitchalong: week 2
photo by Animerae
Well I was super-excited to see so much progress on April's stitchalong - Love and a Sandwich's Monster cupcake! I've got my pieces all cut out, but I think I'll start by showing you all the gems that have been uploaded in the pool so far...
First up is Animerae's fierce little purple cupcake:
I love how LaWhimsy sketches out her ideas and includes her drawings in her pictures:
I'm glad she stitched out of her comfort zone and made this cute little cupcake her own. :)
Look at this cutie stitched by Luciana!
He looks sort of like a happy little gnome cupcake, and I love the shiny bead sprinkles.
Little Red Emo Hood stitched an adorable version on pink gingham:
And I love the pillow pinkaleen made with her cupcake pattern:
Is all of this inspiring you to stitch your own cupcake? I don't know about you but I'm hungry for more cupcakes!
You can also use Chelsea's drawing as a guide to arrange your pieces:

Oh, and yes, your eyes do not fool you - we've finally taken the plunge and are using Disqus for our comments. Some of you have had a hard time commenting since Blogger changed their system, and Disqus offers lots of cool options to keep a conversation going. I'm hoping this will make it even easier for you to share your thoughts with us! Any comments made before today are temporarily invisible while they migrate into Disqus - but everything should be synced up within a week, I hope. Any new comments should show up right away, so feel free to give us a test comment today!
