A to Z Challenge - Theme Reveal

Good Morning everyone!
Today is the day for the big theme reveal of the A to Z challenge and I am quite excited to share what I will be blogging about for the month of April.

The A to Z challenge takes place during the month of April and each day you make a new post, which corresponds to a letter of the alphabet.  So, April 1st is the letter "A", April 2nd is the letter "B", April 3 is the letter "C", and so on.

I have decided to stitch along with the challenge, so the hardest part was picking out a new alphabet pattern to work on, but I did manage to decide on one...
I am going to be cross stitching and blogging about characters from the DC comic universe!  And, I choose an absolutely adorable pattern from FangirlStitches to work on for the month.
This is what the piece will look like once I am finished...
The picture is from Fangirl's Etsy shop and isn't it adorable!  I can't wait to start on the piece.
So, I know my theme may sound a bit strange, since I am not a huge comic book fan, but I am actually doing this for my son.  He is turning 12 at the end of the month and has started enjoying Batman and the Justice League cartoons (thank you Netflix).  I thought that this project would make a great gift for him and learning about the characters would give me more things to talk to him about. (It can be difficult conversing with an almost 12 year old and I know that is only going to get worse.)

Well, I hope everyone will enjoy my posts and my stitching!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I look forward to reading what everyone else will be blogging about.


  1. I'm sure your son will appreciate this:) Have fun stitching and blogging everyday, while I just enjoy reading about, lol.

  2. Sounds like a good plan:) AND you'll have a nice finish for your son at the end of it all too:)

  3. Great choice Carrie. I'm looking forward to seeing your progress each day.

  7. What a great choice! My son is 13 and it is so important to keep the communication channels open. We are reading the Terry Pratchett Discworld books together and most of our conversations start there and branch off!

  8. This sounds interesting :) I will enjoy following you through the a to s challenge.
