March Smalls SAL
The Smalls SAL is hosted by Heather from Stitching Lotus
This year I have two Small Challenges:
For the Hallowe'en Blog I have done something a little different this year, I've chosen a band sampler by Just Nan called Counting Bats and each band corresponds to the monthly themes on the blog. March's theme was Pumpkins and I stitched this band:
And here is the whole thing so far:
I have chosen another series for the Christmas Ornie Blog; The Primitive Hare's Christmas Cubes. This month the theme was Santa and his Helpers. I am having to stitch the letters out of order to fit the themes so here is S and a pair of jolly Elf shoes and stripy socks:
And the three finished letters so far:
They are all stitched on the same 35 count Country Mocha fabric, it's just the photography that makes them look different!
I stitched another Small For Syria:
This is for the Concern Stitching for Syria project. The charity is running a Women's Centre in Lebanon and wants to make a hanging for the walls to show the women that the international stitching community is aware of their difficulties.
And I also completed a Lizzie*Kate small, Sampling Easter. I will be giving the chart away as the prize in my Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop, so don't forget to state clearly if you are interested in winning. I'd like it to go to someone who will stitch it sooner rather than stashing it for later!

Finally, the March Pie Chart. Once again the largest proportion of the month went to Nora Corbett's Alphabet Fairies. If you take the time to add up the days, they actually come to 36! Because some days I stitched more than one project I counted both projects on those days.
