Feel free to choose your own colors. However, since this is a menagerie of animals, make sure you include some browns, grays, and greens. Unless your animals are all from space. In that case, allow thy imagination full reign.
▶WHAT YOU'LL RECEIVE: This pattern is a digital copy that will be available to download after you check out. Your pattern will include a cover sheet, stitching notes, and a black and white chart that's easy to see.
Don't forget to show off your amazing project on Instagram using the hashtag #funkymenageriesal. Or come visit with other SAL-ers in my Facebook group called LINDY STITCHERS. You get extra SAL points for totally making up scientific names for the ambiguous motifs in this sampler.
How do you review a mystery stitch-along before it's over? Using your INTUITION! I have been let down by stitchalongs in the past but I *know* that a stitchalong from Lindy Stitches is going to be a sure-fire bucket of adorableness.
This looks wonderful! It will be my first stitch along which I hopefully (fingers crossed), will be able to keep up with during Christmas Holidays while the children are on their long holidays from school! Also, you always give me a giggle Lindy; "....Unless your animals are all from space. In that case, allow thy imagination full reign." Haha - I love it. Thank you and best wishes for the season!
