There is a new stitch along at Clever Poppy. This is perfect for those of you wanting to start embroidery or get back to it after a long break. I had an ulterior motive.
After downloading the pattern and transferring it to material I was ready to stitch. The downloadable pattern comes with complete instructions.
I used some variegated floss from another project for the flowers of lazy daisy stitch and french knots. I love my needle minder that I made awhile ago it really helps me keep track of the needle.
The finished project was then pinned and stitched onto one side of the project bag.
Each side has an embroidery project stitched onto each side.
This is a project bag I’ve been working on to carry my embroidery projects in. It is a great way to display the latest embroidery projects. I love upcycled bags.
This is a cute little sewing display that I received for my birthday in the middle of the month. It has a thimble, scissors and a spot beside the fairy to keep your needle.

March flew by, with birthdays, several snow and ice storms, a spring forward time change, and the arrival of the spring equinox. There are still patches of snow in the north facing gardens, but most of it has melted away.
We had an unexpected visitor on March 18 – a hawk or is it a merlin was chasing a dove, the dove flew into the front door window, and we had the perfect view of the hawk as it attacked the dove. Not really a pleasant thing but a natural thing in Nature.
On a walk in the garden on March 24 I found lots of growth once the snow had melted away.
Another storm blew through on March 25 with some snow and icy rain. The rest of the week was very changeable as Nature was trying to decide which season it was. Well, it isn’t bbq season yet or sitting on the deck season. But it will be soon.
I love trying new recipes, especially one you cook all in one dish. This one, hot dogs and roasted veggies, came from The English Kitchen and was delicious.
I hope you had a good end of March and look forward to nicer weather in April when I hope to do some stitching sitting on the deck.
