A St. Patrick's Day Finish

A Year in Chalk - March
from Hands On Design
stitched on 30-ct. WDW Gunmetal linen
with GAST Chalk and Avocado

I started this Saturday afternoon and crossed the last stitch just minutes ago! This is a fun series that I'm hoping to complete as the year progresses. The patterns have not all been released yet so I will have to wait and see what they look like. Confidence is high that I will love each of them! I have the board that you use to mount them on and swap them out each month but all my crafty stuff is up north so the finish finishing will have to wait. I have April all set to go and will start it soon.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

BeeBeeDee FeeNee!

Sweetheart Sampler
Blackbird Designs
Loose Feathers #12
stitched on 30-ct. Olde Town Blend linen
with Holly Berry & Chamomile Sampler Threads

I am so happy with how this turned out! It is a true sweetheart sampler with the addition of Phil's initials at the bottom and the year that we met! I plan to take it to be framed as soon as we are back north so we can hang it in our house in Michigan!

It's a beautiful sunny day here in Cape Coral so I plan to head out to the patio soon with a cold bevvie and a trashy novel!

 Enjoy your day!
