March Smalls


The Smalls SAL is hosted by Mary's Thread

This year my Smalls will be the Stoney Creek 12 Days of Christmas 2019 Ornament series which I started on Boxing Day 2020 for the 12 Days of Stitchmas.

March was the Three French Hens:

stitched on 32 count Lime Green evenweave

I added March to my Tiny Modernist calendar: 

stitched on 32 count Summer Sky Belfast linen from Silkweavers

Last month I completed an Autumn Lane Stitchery design for the Just Cross Stitch Ornament group and this month I've been stitching Mrs Claus to go with Santa Claus:

stitched on 28 count tea-dyed evenweave

My second Christmas Ornament for the month comes from the Gift of Stitching magazine, the November 2010 Christmas Ornament Special.  Another 12 Days design, this time from Nancy Pederson, called First Day of Christmas:

stitched on 28 count black evenweave using DMC 742

I completed the design from last month too.   Rosewood Manor design called Quaker Diamond Noel:

stitched on 32 count Reed Green linen

I also stitched a trio of mice from Just Nan:

One more to go for the final weekend in The March of the Mischievious Mice!

🐇 Good Friday - Friday 2nd April 🐇

Finally, it's time to sign up for the Annual Easter Treasure Hunt.    If you would like to take part this year, just leave a comment here.  The week before Easter I will send you a letter of the alphabet which will form part of the mystery phrase.  On Good Friday you will post that letter along with a photo of something seasonal that you have stitched (could be Easter or Spring or just something cheerful and sunny or floral).  We all hop around like little bunnies to find the Mystery Phrase!

Here's a link to last year's hop so you can see how it all works - Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop 2020

You are doing a wonderful job keeping up with all of your stitch a longs (12 days of Christmas, Months of the Year, Just Nan). I love seeing all the different projects you have on the go since I usually only do 1 or 2 projects at the same time.

Love all your work but those mice are just adorable.
