April TUSAL and Dancing Daffodils
This is April's TUSAL, posing with the two uncompleted Spring/Easter designs I started as part of March Madness. The picture in the frame is a Travelling Pattern started by Cucki. I'm not sure where it has reached now!
I also completed and mounted the Hallowe'en Ornie for March:
This is a freebie from La Contesse's blog. I changed it slightly to make it square and added a little witch charm instead of the charted stitched bats. It is stitched over 1 on 28count burnt orange Jazlyn. Several people are taking part in the Hallowe'en Ornie SAL and post regularly but there aren't many Followers yet. If you're a fan of Hallowe'en I do recommend following the blog just to see all the lovely designs there, even if you don't need another SAL challenge!
And now for the Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop:
I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high oer blogs and hills
When all at once I worked it out
The answer's "Dancing Daffodils"
Thank you Christine, the answer was indeed "Dancing Daffodils", a sight usually seen at this time of year but not under the snow so many of us have had. The only reason we've not had snow here is the wind has come straight from Siberia and blown it all inland!
I did the draw this afternoon, aided and abetted by the Large Boy. There were 15 picture posters and 37 correct answers (zero incorrect ones!) so we simply assigned everyone a playing card and picked 2 at random, one from each category. The winners were 2 of Clubs and 9 of Spades, aka Lynda and Linda!
The first Lynda blogs from her Cozy Little Place for Stitching and the second Linda says SUch is Life. I'll be in touch soon to discover your addresses if I don't already have them.
Thank you to everyone who entered this year and to all those who became new followers for the participating blogs. It's a great way to discover new friends.
Finally, my Blogaversary Giveaway is still open. See the previous post for the competition question. Another big Thank You to everyone that has shared their answers already. It's so much fun to find out more about you all.
