Here we are at mid March already. The clocks changed last weekend. I wish we could just stay on one time and not change twice a year.
Baking this week included some Irish soda bread in honour of St. Patrick’s Day.
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.
It isn’t supposed to start till the end of the month, however I am doing it early as I want the finished piece to fill in on the 4th side of my embroidery project bag. The downloadable pattern comes with complete instructions.
The mason jar blooms is sewn on the first side, the time to stitch embroidery is ready to sew on one side, winter tea cup embroidery is pinned on one of the side panels, and this bunny embroidery will be on the last side.
I’ve started planning the next project which will be a set of pillow cases for an upcoming birthday. I’ve drawn out a pattern and if I like it will transfer it to the pillow cases ready for stitching next week.
I get lots of inspiration from other stitchers at Slow Sunday Stitching and appreciate all the visits and comments from there. Visit them and gather some inspiration for yourself.
Spring is fast approaching. This year March 20, 2023 is the first day of the spring season but will it be the first spring weather day? I’ve been touching up some of the rocks that will go outside once the weather improves. And I was also experimenting with some brown paper bags with an idea that another friend shared with me. More on that craft later if it turns out.
It is always exciting when the patches of ground begin to appear in March, a promise of what is to come. Now the birds will have a place to peck for worms.
Even though it is foggy to start the day and there is rain coming down to help wash away more of the snow I hope you all have a wonderful day.
