I don't think I've tackled this kind of stitch along before, where the pattern is revealed a section at a time. There have been a couple of quilt alongs that I didn't manage to keep up with, but I've never tried something quite like this.
Now I'm hooked.
Patterns: Universal Monster Sal by the Witchy Stitcher and Emerald City SAL by Owl Forest Embroidery
Just look at the Phantom of the Opera with his pipe organ! Room number two, The Mummy, is even cuter. If it wasn't for Stitch Maynia and all of the other things I want to stitch on, I might actually have had them done before the third room comes out. It's the Universal Monster SAL and we've still got the Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Invisible Man, Frankenstein and his bride, the Wolfman, Dracula to look forward to -- and a haunted mansion to stitch around the outside of the whole thing.
It's like a wonderfully creepy dollhouse.
The house is the first bit of the Emerald City SAL, a free download from Owl Forest Embroidery. There would already be a cyclone if I'd been able to remember which project that shade of grey floss was hiding in. There are three sections available so far, all depicting scenes from the story. I'm a little less likely to keep up with this one, but I can definitely see myself stitching the whole thing.
Now that I've started these two, I'm sure I'll be susceptible to other SALs in the future.
Between writing this post and publishing it, the third Universal Monsters room was released and I had to drop everything to start stitching the Gill Man because he is the cutest thing ever and these colors have me imaging the smell of musty old tropical fish stores...
