April's Pattern created by Magical525 for your stitching pleasure:

Spring is here - Neglected Floss SAL April by Magical525

April Neglected Floss SAL by Mattsma by Mattsma  

Magic Wand by bikershead Magical525 and   Butterflies by pjuk Mattsma have come up with a way for you to use that neglected floss you have laying around.  For some of you, it probably bothers you just a tiny bit that you have these flosses that never get used or there is just a tiny bit left of some specialty floss that you may never use again in a pattern so here is the best way to ensure you use every  one of them at least once, or finish them off entirely!  Gifted floss, those bobbins that sit quietly in your floss boxes, bags, or drawer never getting used or are forgotten…oh yes, we have something fun for you!

Heart 'n Swirl Divider 3 - F2U! by Drache-Lehre

Magical525 will provide a pattern, you just grab three random colors, or get color coordinated, and stitch up the pattern using those old neglected flosses.  Random number generator works for those times when you cannot decide.  Or close your eyes and reach into your stash and use whatever comes out. Butterfly Bright-Lt-Blue - F2U! by Drache-Lehre

This is going to be a year long SAL to start, so before you begin, consider how you would like to stitch this up.  Some patterns will be 20 x 20 stitches all the way to 50 x 50 stitches.  Because of the size variations, you could create a lovely sampler-type project, or save each one and then, when you have quite a few….make BISCORNU (yes I’m biased as we love making them).  The possibilities are endless! Butterfly Bright-Purple - F2U! by Drache-Lehre

Butterfly Pink - F2U! by Drache-Lehre  The patterns are lovingly created by Magical525 and are FREE.  You provide the neglected flosses, and while you are at it…dig out those little pieces and parts of fabrics you have laying around that you don’t know what to do with!  These will make PERFECT on the go travel projects.

Lily - Bullet [Left] - F2U! by Drache-Lehre  The flosses do not have to be DMC, they can be ANY NEGLECTED FLOSS you have laying around. Have two strands of some Weeks Dye Works left over?  Use that up until it’s gone! Then start a new floss where you left off. Test out those metallics or silks or satins that you are nervous about using!   Lily - Bullet [Right] - F2U! by Drache-Lehre

You could submit your finished piece to the Contest Folder, even though this isn’t a contest, just a little SAL.  Last but not least:  ENJOY YOURSELF! Rainbow Heart [Free to use] by Milkate  

The Greasy Pole by KitLightning  At the end of each month Magical525 will do a roundup to show off what everyone has accomplished!  Pixel gemstones - Amethyst by Arrelline
