A blog trying to focus on all the nice things in life, those moments when everything turns out right. Finding the perfect fabric for that chart you love, the ideal sampler quote, just the right picture in all the 1000s of magazines you own. Meeting people who share your interests and obsessions and totally understand why you NEED that chart when you already have enough to last until you're 104
The Mania of Maynia is over and it's time to recap how the month went.
First of all, here is my Pie:
15 days of Discworld, all spent on The Blowing Man, from here:

I have his legs and wind to finish and then I will work on the red/white border to make sure that all meeets up alright.
In my WIPocalypse post I showed my finish of Just Nan's Winter in the Square which had been my 20-a-Day project so far this year. Once I completed that I decided to start another Just Nan seasonal design. This one is Small Delights - Spring! with the exclamation mark as part of the name. I'm using a lovely pale green linen which is incredibly difficult to get the colour right in photos:

The Tiny Decisions app was used once again to decide on my project for the rest of the month after I completed 15 days of Discworld. A new start came up, I was very excited about this one. Regular followers will remember my Spooky Conversion of Lavender & Lace's Enchanted Alphabet - Happy Dance. I had been following Ms Oh Sew Crafty's Christmas Village and also Michelle Cozyegg's Halloween Village and wanted one of my own. I decided to use the County Cottage Needlework Main Street as the basis and convert each shop to a Spooky version. Kerry in Stitches has done a Gilmour Girls version and when I won her Sparklies Giveaway I decided to use the voucher to purchase the fabric and make this a 2020 start.
Unfortunately 8 days wasn't quite enough to finish it so I am going to pop it into the Bath-Time stitching slot which is vacant thanks to the end of Maynia.
You can see there is very little left to do:

(this fabric photographs perfectly almost every time)
I will list my conversion colours when I finish this shop.
And on to Maynia. Here are the final three designs:
