Also Jo's Fault!

 I can't show progress on the Mill Hill kit, but I wanted to share this as it is also for Jo's Blog Hop that is coming up. I need to blame someone for my lack of self control!

IHSW: My Progress for March 2022

 Well, it is all Jo's fault! I started something new this weekend.

A little Mill Hill Bead Kit. Hopefully I will have it done for the Blog Hop Jo is scheduling.

Pour ta Fete got a bit of attention:

As did Purple Mountain Majesty:

I stitched very little on the Lizard Canvas as I need some threads to do the background:

And I'm not sure about the gecko's head. I may have to do some ripping.

Plugging away on More than a Rose. That background!

And I managed to start the hemstitch on Red February:

So what did you stitch this weekend?

IHSW March 2022 :What I Will Try to Stitch

 The important word is TRY!

Pour ta Fete by Lind

Purple Mountains Majesty Heart by Gay Ann Rogers
Lizard Canvas:
More Than a Rose by Melinda Sherbring:

I really want to start a new piece as I feel like it might cheer me up a bit. But a bit of progress on one or all of these would also be a blessing!

Gifted Gorgeousness March 2022

 Well, I am glad I have a reminder on my phone for this lovely little challenge. I was wondering, what have I stitched that could count as a "gift"? Hmmm. Not Purple Mountain Majesty by Gay Ann Rogers-

(The trees are supposed to be half crosses, BTW. They just look a little weird to me.)

Not More Than A Rose by Melinda Sherbring:

You can't tell, but there is a ton of shiny threads on this piece!

Put Pour ta Fete will work!  I think the original sampler was stitched as a gift for an aunt! That counts, doesn't it?

Go check Jo's Blog out to see more Gifted Gorgeousness!

Pour Ta Fete Progress

 I love stitching on this piece. Teeny, tiny stitches:

I did have to frog the "F": Sigh
I may finish this in my lifetime.

Gay Ann Rogers Challenge

 Gay Ann Rogers posted a challenge to stitch 15 stitches a day. I'm all for a new challenge! I decided to use Purple Mountain Majesty Heart as it has a ton of tent stitch that needs to be done.

Here is my start:

Here is my "15 stitches:"

Ignore the crazy trees. They get another layer and I will fix them then.

I Can't Believe it is March!

 New numbers were called for WIPGO, so I have abandoned the Lizard Canvas until I catch up for this month. But I did spend some serious time with Springhill by Rosewood Manor.

Here is where I started:

And here is where I finished:

I'm a slow stitcher so I am happy with my progress. Now to dig out Angel of Love by Lavender and Lace.
