March Update

My goodness, I can't believe it's time to do a Stitch from Stash update already!
Since my gung-ho St. Patrick's Day stitching I have laid my tapestry needles down and not returned!
I did not start any new charts this month, despite having every good intention to.  I did dust off Quaker Turtles but I think I am going to have to start from scratch on that one.

I did spend some of the $25 budget this month:  I bought an issue of Cross Stitcher because I just have to stitch this pillow or a portion of it!
(photo is taken from the March issue)

So my grand total for the month is $14, however I do have carry over from January and February when I didn't spend any money.

I have been working a bit on my stool cover:

I'm loving the bright colours because the weather is still the pits.  Unfortunately I have to rip out the last 6 rows because it's "wibbly" and I want it to lay flat. Fingers crossed I get it right next time.  Someone is waiting for me to get it finished, because it offers a better vantage point to bark at people across the street.

I stitched the little bird at the top using a pattern in the February issue of 'Bustle and Sew' magazine.  I used a thrifted cashmere sweater and it's so downy soft.  So, to the person who washed their Lord and Taylor, 100% cashmere sweater and put it in the dryer and shrunk it to baby size - one person's junk really is another person's treasure!

Have a wonderful week and thanks for visiting!

Such fun, happy, colorful stuff! Love the stool cover - and your furry "model." The pillow looks like it will be a fun project - made me wonder if a person could do something similar with a profile drawing of their child.

That cushion is fantastic....definitely a must stitch. I haven't done any cross stitch for ages, think I might start a new project soon as it is such a lovely hobby.

Oh Jenn, this little birdie is so sweet. And the pillow you found in the Cross Stitcher is definitely worth stitching.
