March Stitching

 Good morning ! I hope you had a great week !
I finished stitching this With Thy Needle and Thread March wordplay last week , and finally got it finished to show you !
 I converted all the floss to DMC and changed some of the colors..I didn't want any of the orange in it.. so I used more greens and tans.
 I was having a little trouble with my magnet system to hold it on the silver tray , so my daughter said I should get some sheet metal and cut a piece to use on the back of the stitchery to hold it to the magnets (I was using 2 sets of magnets ,3 on the stitching and 3 on the tray ) it works perfectly and will be a lot cheaper ! No more magnets to buy.
 I matted March on burlap too , like Februarys.. you can also see Octobers  here ...
 We also found the new green Mason jars at Michaels ! Had to bring some of those home :)
 I am working on the March Cottage from CCN , hope to have that finished soon !
When we were out thrifting the other day I found some more snowman salad/desert plates .. these are Oneida , and were 49 cents each .. they are really cute ! I also got a really nice wrought iron planter for my porch at an Estate sale .. It will have to wait until I get flowers to show you :)
I redid one of my daughters chalkboards at her house and she wanted a chicken , so here is her chicken ..I need a long chalkboard like that for my house :)

We took this photo with our iphones last week in our neighborhood ..I love the reflection in the hood of the car..Do you see all that snow we still have ?!?

Hope you have a great weekend ! Thanks so much for your visits and nice comments !
 See you on Monday with a project I am doing for Joann Fabrics and Crafts !I would love for you to follow me on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest ..all the links are in the sidebar !

Good morning Priscilla. Those IG photos were stellar!!!!! Love all of your monthly x stitch. I was at our new Hobby Lobby yesterday, and I stood there in front of the deco mesh, wonderingnwhichbto get, and wishing my friend Priscilla lived near me so I could learn how to make one of those beautiful wreaths!!!!!!! I didn't get any. : (
Off to our Noah's first soccer game.

Wow--that last photo with your iPhone is so amazing, Priscilla--just a glorious shot of your snow and the setting sun. As tired of the snow as we are, it is still quite pretty!

Love your newest Word Play finish, too--I like the colors you used, too. It looks more spring-like without the oranges... Really nice :)

Word Play looks great. The more of them I have done, the more colors I have changed. My March looks like the recommended colors because it was only the 2nd one I did. I wish I had changed colors but I sure won't do it over!!

Beautiful photo of the snow, you seem to have had snow for ages!!!! Bet you're really ready for spring!!
Love your March wordplay and how you have finished it on the tray, the colours are just right, surely orange isn't Springy???
Your daughters chicken is fab, you have quite a talent, don't you
Love to all
Linda O xxxx

I love the stitchery, the colours are beautiful!, I prefer muted colours. The photo from the car is almost magical, Mr B uploads his to a flicker account and has won many awards, I think it would be safe to say this merits recognition:)

Beautiful Stitching!!! :)

Kathleen said...

Love your stitching. I used to do a lot of cross stitch, but my eyes hate me now, so I don't do it much anymore. I need to get me a magnifying light or something. Thanks for linking up to Tips and Tricks.

Sarah said...

I always enjoy seeing your newest stitching project.
Thanks for sharing them!
