March's Updates

It's almost the end of March, time for an update. Here is my ornament for March, another one of LHN monthly ornaments.

Design: Snowy Pines by LHN
Fabric: 28ct Raw Linen
Thread: DMC

Notice that cute pincube in the corner of the picture? I won it from Carmen's blog giveaway. Thank you for this gift, Carmen, I love it!

Next, an update on the 6 Fat Men. I had finished "Let It Snow" and started on "Snow House". These snowmen are a delight to stitch, they are quick too!

Continuing on my stitching of smalls, here are 3 small finishes for your viewing pleasure. You have to wait to see the finishing ha, ha!

This is Garden Pin Cushion from The first of LK Inspiration Boxers, B33 I Know God.

Design: LK B33 I Know God
Fabric: 32ct Platinum Belfast Linen
Thread: DMC

The next small was inspired by Becky. Her stitching and finishing are gorgeous, visit her blog to see more of her wonderful works.

Not sure about the finishing for this one, may turn it into a needlebook.

Design: LHN Busy Needle
Fabric: 40ct Hand-dyed linen by Nina
Thread: WDW, DMC

The third small is a freebie by The Little Stitcher. It is a pretty and quick stitch. I intend to turn it into a tea pouch for my younger DD, she loves tea!

The fabric is cream, the picture is misleading!!!

Design: Tea Time by The Little Stitcher
Fabric: 28ct Cream Cashel
Thread: DMC

Ok, the only finishing I did in March is to finish off the SB's scissors fob. The cording is finally done and I love it. I did finished an Exchange ornament, will show when it arrives at my partner's home.

That is all for March, hopefully more to show for April. I must really sit down to do some finishings, my box is overflowing!

Happy Stitching till the next update!
