And Then There Were the SAL pieces

I enjoyed stitching the Maryse SAL piece this month – mainly because crocus are one of my favourite flowers!  Not that I can see any outside, given the size of the snowbanks and snowdrifts there are at my house – LOL.  I can dream tho……

I am particularly enjoying the colours in this piece, and am looking forward to seeing what the rest of the neighbourhood looks like.

And then there were two – owls, that is!  Well, okay, including January, there are now three:

I switched the colours on the tummys tho – I could not see much difference  in shades when I stitched the first owl in the colour called for.  Do you think there will be a shamrock owl here in March??

And then there were blackbirds – lots of them this time!  This is part II in the Blackbird Mystery Sampler:

hmmmm 12 blackbirds!  If this were a flock of crows, it would be a ‘murder’.

Can you stand to see another mitten?  The Cricket Collection offered a new freebie for Valentines day – Mitten Cakes!  The freebie is here: http://www.cecricket.com/gift_design.html and this is my finished mitten for February:



I backstitched the SWEET part of the sweetheart, cause I could not see the letters well. Vicki’s idea of beads for sprinkles was perfect!  And I think the pink and white cording tops it off!
