March Smalls SAL

March has been a fabulous month for me for stitching smalls. After finishing off the stitching on a rather large design in February I was in the mood for some quicker, smaller finishes. I managed to stitch four small designs and complete the final finishing on two of these in addition to finishing up some stitches from last year.

It seem only fitting to stitch some St. Patrick's Day pillows.


Lizzie Kate St. Patrick Flip-it

The Primitive Hare Shamrock freebie

These two smalls contributed to my bowl of St. Patrick's Day cheer.



After St. Patrick's Day it was time to bring in some spring themed designs. My two finishes were Threadwork Primitives Bloom and Primitive Stitchin' A Tisket A Tasket. These can be seen here on my previous post. I have plans for the finishing on Bloom but the verdict is still out on how I'll finish the other.

The two finishes from last year which I added the final finishing touches to are Printemps and Beehive, both of which were freebie patterns offered by their designers Martine and Esther.





There is another small start which I didn't quite get finished in time.
This is one of three eggs by Country Garden Stitcher which actually are meant to be stitched all together. I have chosen instead to stitch them individually. They are very similar to the Christmas packages which she has designed. Lots of beads, glitter and colour. Mine is stitched on a lovely lavender opalescent fabric using a Dinky Dyes overdyed silk floss.

With luck I'll have the finished product to show on next month's post! 
As the days get sunnier and warmer I have lots more ideas for small finishes to brighten up the house. I started off the year with a list of large designs which I wanted to finish by year's end but this may just be the year of the small!

Your St Patrick's basket looks wonderful. I really must have a finishing day soon. I know I have plenty of designs that would fill a basket many times over!
Best wishes.
