March WIPocalypse


March has just flown by but I think I've managed to do pretty well with my stitching this month. With the arrival of spring and Easter almost here I wanted to stitch some smalls or ornaments to add to my decor. I managed to stitch three pieces, two of which I also did the final finishing on. I'm unable to show one of my finishes since it's for an Easter treasure hunt taking place this weekend. I'll be able to post a pic of it at that time.


The above was completed for my commitment to the Ornament SAL. Then I continued on my Prairie Schooler kick!

The ornament for the Easter treasure hunt is also a Prairie Schooler design.

I also completed this handsome fellow just in time for St. Paddy's Day!

Heart in Hand Needleart St. Patrick's Bird

In addition to the smalls, I finished up two of my larger WIPs.

Heartstring Samplery Baby It's Cold Outside

and

Blackbird Designs Awake The Dawning Day

I'm so glad that I got the latter one done because I really want to get this housewarming gift to its new owner so it can grace the walls of her lovely new home. It's off to be stretched today and when that's done Pam can pick out the frame of her choice. 

As a reward for all these finishes, I started not one, but two new stitches. Both are Plum Street Sampler designs - Fruit of the Spirit followed by Viktor and Irina. 






That about covers it for this month. Watch out for some updated photos of the new starts over the next few weeks.

So many beautiful projects this month! I do love the PS Spring--have stitched it three times myself :)

Happy Easter, Lynn. Great projects and so many! How in the world did you get your cat to wear those bunny ears? She looks kind of annoyed.

Great stitching Lynn, I do have a soft spot for those Heart in Hand birds. I really should get round to finishing all of mine up!
Best wishes.
