Song of the Weather – March

I was in two minds whether to carry straight on with the March chart or have a change. I decided that as I had all of the stuff out that it made sense to carry on. March was a lot of fun. I already like Queen stitches and the Basque knots were fabulous to stitch – they are two rows of knots around the outside of the design. 

I sweated over the cutting – again! I'm not too sure that's going to wear off in a hurry in fact, as I get more bits stitched it might get worse…more to ruin if I mess it up! I really like the shape that the Klosters and the cutting make this month and the Square Filet stitch inside the middle holes is great – I used a sharp needle to do that, made it a lot easier. 

So here it is…

I put a piece of fabric behind the holes this time – it was a useful exercise. I now know that I will not be using any shade of pink fabric at the back!

Here are the first 3 altogether…
