No Flying Monkeys Stitch-Along

I have started blog-stitching this Point of It All Designs canvas on my main Blog but since this creates a stitch guide, I am collecting all the links here so you can follow along.  The canvas itself is "Good Day - No Flying Monkeys" #S-386.  Any shop can order it for you from Point of It All Designs.

This piece is 9 inches high and 7 wide on 13 count canvas.  I plan to post about how I stitch it every Friday and will collect the links here.  I'll add  the threads and other supplies I used below as I figure out what to do.

After I finished this piece, I turned my instructions into a free stitch guide.  It is not as detailed as what you will find in the links below but you can stitch No Flying Monkeys using it.  Just email me at to get a copy of the PDF file.

Hello, Judith. I can email you the guide I wrote as a PDF file. You just have to send your email address to me at I don't know of any other guides for this canvas although I've seen it stitched several times using elements from my guide.

It's a very fun canvas, by the way. You'll enjoy it, wither you use my free guide or not.
