Wow, it's been a while....

Hi all

Gosh what happened to March! I didn't realise I had missed a whole month of posting. I've been working on my crazy January challenge pieces and also on some of my older wips. So without further ado, here's some pics!

First up, here's my March ornament:Country Cottage Needleworks - Visions of Sugar Plums unknown 28ct linen with DMC

I was so sorry to hear the bad news about Lisa from the Primitive Needle as were a lot of others. I decided to stitch one of her designs. Here's a little witch:

Fabric is a remnant from my stash, think it was part of a hand-dyed grab bag from silkweavers. Threads used were Crescent Colours - Raven, GAST - Fragrant Cloves & GAST Avocado.

In March I made some progress on my crazy challenge piece, Blue Ribbon Designs - Autumn Leaves & Sunflower Seeds. This month I finished the squirrel block & the house block. Here's a pic of my progress:

The last few weeks I've been stitching on an older wip, Mirabilia's Mermaids of the Deep Blue. The last time I touched this I had to frog a bit and ended up putting it away. I was just past the halfway mark. Here's a progress pic of the whole project, I've been working on the left mermaid and you can see with the mermaid on the right where I was at previously.

Here's a close-up of the area I've been working on, it seems blogger has turned the pic sideways for some reason though. Sorry for the lousy pics, my camera seems to be playing up!

Well that's it for now, I'm currently working on Bent Creek's Easter Snapper for an Easter SAL I'm in with one of my yahoo groups. As I only started it last night I haven't got a pic yet but will endeavour to get one soon.

Thanks for looking and as always, your comments if you have a chance to post one are most welcome!

Happy Stitching
