March Smalls SAL

The last day of the month and time for a Smalls update. As I indicated in the last post I stitched a piece by Blackbird Designs called Bird in Hand. This was chosen by my granddaughter to be stitched by moi as a birthday gift for her. I have finished all the stitching and all that remains is the final finishing.



The design called for my initial at the bottom right hand and I've added my granddaughter's initial to the top left. 

It was a busy month and I didn't have time to complete the second small. This one is to be added to my display bowl of small spring stitches. It's another Blackbird Design called Pins and Tulips Pincushion and it can be found in their book Sarah Tobias.


This should be finished fairly quickly if I can stay still long enough to stitch! 
I just received a few new charts from the Nashville Needlework Market and one in particular I hope to finish as part of this years' smalls. Have a peek at A Stitch in Time by With Thy Needle and Thread.  
See you next month!

Lynn: I love Blackbird Designs they are so primitive looking.
Love your new start, I stitched this pattern for a Blackbird Designs Exchange a few years ago I love it.
