It’s the first day of a new month today so I’ve changed over my display of cross-stitch smalls. Last month was predominantly Valentine themed ones, some of these have stayed as it’s our 12th wedding anniversary on the 17th March.
Be My Valentine has gone back in the bureau but the others have stayed. I’ve also kept the little heart freebie from Faby Reilly,
Over the last two or three years I’ve made an anniversary card, a little keepsake of the occasion. This was last years which turned out a bit big for a card so I mounted it and included a little pocket on the back for messages.
This was the first one I made, it’s a design by Faby Reilly, it’s still a card at the moment, I haven’t quite sussed out how I’m going to make it into a small, I might just pop it in a little frame.
The Joyful World SAL for March is obviously included, this month has a stork and chick. .
It’s been very mild here for the last couple of weeks and we saw our first bumble bee of the year, so I’ve included this bee pincushion I made back in 2015, it’s a design by Jardin Privee.
This one hasn’t got any four leaf clovers on it but somehow it makes me think of St Patricks Day. I think it would look pretty with a tiny clover charm in the middle!
So, here’s my bowl of smalls for March. I’m hoping to finish some Easter ones for next month.
