Could I have waited any longer to get this March ornament finished? Don't think so ;-)
It was a fun one to work on. I have seen some really pretty ones that you all have done, and that makes me think this will not be the only set I'll make. Do you see that awful, nasty stain on the back piece? My 'new' iron spit some steam that was brown on it... I haven't done anything other than blot it to try to remove it. So sad !! But AT LEAST it wasn't the front; right?
The list of freebies for April's Rabbit theme have been posted - come check them out! I've verified all the links are working as of this posting, and there are some really cute designs. If you run across any other free rabbit patterns (or patterns that fit any of our themes), please let me know and I'll add them to our link list.
The March freebies will be listed on the main page for the next few days. Once they are removed, they will continue to be available in the Archive section. As with any freebie, be sure to print it out and/or save it to your own computer when you find it, as designs can be removed by the designers at any time.
For February, I've stitched a beautiful heart offered as a Valentine's design from Dragonfly Stitches. This is on a mystery linen using HDF Phlox silk.
For March, I've stitched Sampler Flowers 2 by Peripheria Designs.

This is my March flower soon-to-be-an-ornament. The chart is from Prairie Schooler that I recently found linked on a list of freebies (there two others there also). I used 18 ct white Aida and most of the suggested floss colors.

Here is my ornament for March . I still need to stitch it together, but you can see it will be a diamond shape with the hanger on the top point. The pattern is from the Containers section, p. 25, in the Better Homes and Gardens 2001 Cross Stitch Designs book.

I first saw a beautiful version of this on the Freebie Gallery. Mine is just a little stuffed pillow and a little big for an ornament but I love how it turned out. I even remembered to put the year on it (I often forget). The free chart is from the Midsummer Night Musings blog.

I have finally stitched up my January ornie, I decided not to use the design I had first settled on and started a new search. This is from Little House Needlework's 'Stitcher's Prayer'. I'm using a Heart in Hand kit for February's, and am on the lookout for a March design that is a similar shape.
Everyone seems to be doing so well keeping up - you are an inspiration to a slow poke like me!
