March Smalls

We turned the page on the calendar before I realized that I had yet to post my small finish for the month of March. This is a sweet little design by Pheasant Street Samplers called My Sewing Tools which I picked up last year at the Prim Stitchers Society Retreat.

I haven't decided on a final finish yet. Perhaps a needlebook? I didn't start this until quite late in the month but it stitched up quickly.

I'm already working on April's small. After arriving home from church following Easter services yesterday I sat down and stitched more than I think I had all last month! I've chosen a sweet little design by SubRosa to finish as a birthday gift for my childhood friend. It's appropriately called Happy Birthday. Here's a sneak peek of it.

I love the colours used in this design and it's also stitching up very quickly. Although Easter has come and gone, I'm in the mood to stitch another small design to add to my Easter/Spring display. Looks like I'll have plenty of time this month for another stitch! 

My eldest son is visiting with us for a bit. His girls are still in school so they remained home at their mom's place. It was great to have all three of my sons and my daughter-in-law join us at Easter this year!

I hope you all had a joyous Easter celebration. He is Risen! Alleluia!
