The last day of February...will March come in like a lamb or a lion? I am voting for Lamb and that we will have some spring weather here in Alabama.
Sister Leta found this piece of cross stitch while decluttering. She kindly gifted it to me to make a pillow for my Grimmwood Dough Bowl. She says she cannot even remember doing this little stitch. It must have been the 90s because look at all that back stitching. I have to admit that I am glad back stitching is seldom found in charts these days.
On Wednesday I had my six month dental cleaning and check in Huntsville so I rewarded myself with a trip to Patches and Stitches. This shop is a combination quilt/ cross stitch shop and on Wednesdays they put their fat quarters on sale....20% off for each one.
I found this cute print to add to Leta's stitch to make a little pillow.
Here are the fat quarters I picked up....
I will be using them for future projects. I just love the blue stripe with he pink flowers.
I picked up two pieces of fabric for stitching....
I will probably use this one for a Christmas ornament. Plans could change.
Speaking of changing plans. My Very Prairie Year took a detour last week. I have completed three monthly projects and as I was looking at my spring plans I had a change of heart. I think I was a bit unrealistic about my Prairie Stitching. So my April May and June stitch will be Summer Breeze .
I have three finishes....
Forest Snowfall....what a fun stitch. I did change some of the colors as well as the front door style.
My March Prairie Schooler piece. It will be a small pillow as well. Going to Grimmwood.
I also finished up my October Word Play...it had been in Time Out because I just got tired of stitching on it. I managed to get these two pieces laced up and ready to FFO.
Oh and one more bunny I forgot to share on Wednesday.
He is living on the kitchen hutch until after Easter.
