Theme-a-licious Update - March Madness


In my last update I said that I would like to finish the eyelet alphabet on my 'March Madness' project Juda Hayle in Miniature by Eileen Bennett.  Unfortunately I was feeling rather under the weather for the last couple of weeks, so such tiny stitching wasn't appealing (Deco got plenty of love instead!) but I did get a few more letters done.  I can see the end of this alphabet now!

I did meet my main goal for March and Alpine Garden is finished! A delight to stitch as always with a Drawn Thread design and I'm thrilled to have it stitched at last.  I just have to stitch Prairie Garden now to complete the set.

Now onto my goals for 'Amazon April', Heather's guidance is 'dip your needle into the vast swath of fabric dedicated to your BIGGEST projects!' 

So I am going to pull the Scottish Sampler from the Goodhart Book back out to work on this month,  I'm not going to start something new to replace 'Alpine Garden' as I am expecting that the pre-stitching for this years classes with Lauren Sauer to arrive soon and I will need to crack on with that.
