TUSAL March #2

I collected quite a lot of orts for TUSAL. Orts were from Just Nan's Cardinal Tweet and Oakley Owlet, and some were from my Easter/Spring exchange project. If you still don't know what TUSAL is click the icon on the left hand side bar. Here is an up close look at the orts.

Here is a photo of the whole ort jar with the lid.

2014 Smalls SAL - March

It is the last Wednesday of March, so it is time for the Smalls SAL. I worked on 3 small projects this month.

Here are the stitched pieces for Cardinal Tweet - Just Nan. I will show the completed photo during the Just Nan SAL update.

Then I did some more stitching last night on Oakley Owlet - Just Nan.

The 3rd project was the Spring/Easter exchange project but it is still a secret until April 12th.

It was another productive International Hermit Stitching Weekend. I finished my Spring/Easter Exchange project (won't be able to show photos until April 12th).
I also started another small project last week at the Cross Stitch Club. This is what I got done on Oakley Owlet - Just Nan.

This is what I accomplished over the weekend.

St. Patrick's Day

I hope everyone had a great St. Patrick's Day. Here is a project I stitched in 2009 for my Nana who was irish. It was returned to me last summer when she passed away. I thought of her today as I wore green, which was her favourite colour.
