I try to celebrate each of the patron saints days for the United Kingdom, it's a good reason to move my ornaments and stitching around and of course cook a special dinner. Tonight we have lamb and I have some dried fruit soaking in tea ready to make my Bara Brith.
My Grandmother's jug vase comes out on March 1st, from that date until after Easter I keep it filled with daffodils - my first bunch came from Lidl yesterday.
I have my Welsh dragons on the mantle just for today so I'll be changing it slightly tomorrow.
My season tree picture is now showing Spring. I love these tree designs from Jardin Privé, I stitched them all a few years ago as part of Needlecraft Haven's Four Season's SAL and change it for the seasons, this one will stay until the end of May now.
My spring cushion was also stitched for the Four Season's SAL and will be on display too until the end of May. I have yet to decide what to stitch for this year's SAL, as it's a day home due to our very cold snowy weather it might be an online shopping day!
My Drawn Thread March box finish will of course be staying on show for the whole month too - I love my set of these, it's so nice to change each month.
I have no new stitching to share and my next few pieces are all gifts or exchanges however I have managed a little more on Sampler Bouquet, just the centre motif to do and that's another panel finished - not far to go now.
RJ and Mary at Stitching Friends Forever are celebrating their first blog birthday at the end of March and asked everyone to send a photo of something stitched by their favourite designer - they are holding a 'party' at the end of March - happy blogiversary RJ and Mary
I too have a blog birthday at the end of March - 10 years !! I cannot believe it has been that long. RJ and Mary's party gave me an idea - a 'first blog' celebration.
If you would like to take part please email me a link to your very first blog post - on March 30th I will post up '10 years of blogging' and will include all the blogs/links sent so we can see how we all started - I do hope you'll join in.
