Morning Bloggers !
This morning is bright and sunny and I’ve turned the corner on my cold, my head now feels part of my body lol. I feel ready to tackly lots of things today so first off on the list is my update and March Makeover on the blog.
With it being March and St. Patrick’s Day being celebrated in March how could I not have gone with shamrocks as a theme this month. I’m liking it, now if something is hard to read or anything do just let me know.
Theme-a-licious for me this month was a roaring success. Of course the fact that I picked Pride and Prejudice themed pieces helped enormously.
On my list was.
- My Mrs Darcy Sampler
- My Mr Darcy Letter
Both pieces are by The Sampler Girl and I got both pieces complete and the Mrs Darcy got framed. My Mr Darcy’s Letter needs a frame which I’ll order next week but I know what I want look wise for it and it was totally swooonnnnn a licious stitching it. I swear I could hear Colin Firth saying it to me while I stitched it rofl…
|Mrs Darcy finished and framed.|
Now for the month of March the theme is March Madness.
Stitch or knit on something different every day…it’s madness…of the funnest possible kind.
Now as I have my rotation finally working to plan with a change on that happening every 10 hours I’m normally getting two if not onto a third project on a week but that dosen’t quite meet this but with it and my knitting I’m confident I can meet this challenge. So thats 2/3 projects a week stitching wise and I know I’ve got 5 projects knitting wise on the go at the moment so thats me sorted. I can feel this month is going to be hectic lol.
