Where did March go?

Can anyone tell me where March went??? It seems that it never existed, as it went by so fast! I've totally been busy all (well, most of) this time, just not near Blogger! Let's see... yardwork, taxes, closet organizing, starting the garden, and sometimes just nothin' :)

I stitched this and sent to my daughter to celebrate the beginning of spring.

And the back:

While rummaging in my stash I found this old WIP that I know I must have started sometime around 1988. Not a lot left to do, so I thought it would look cute as a small patriotic pillow for the chair in my kitchen. So it's finished!

Liberty Dolls
The Cricket Collection
c. 1987
1988 ? - 3/20/2012

Then this cute little bunny begged to be stitched, also with a small pillow in mind. The addition of the tiny, tiny buttons was just perfect!

I loved working this piece, and want to have it framed real soon. This was my "travel" project. I have to choose another small canvas and get it ready to "go".

I couldn't resist starting this old Sheepish design, Gone Fishing! Haven't stitched one from Sheepish in so long.

Well, if you got this far you get a gold star!! I'll be back soon!

Yay! I get a gold star! You've been busy Mary. That bunny is sure cute and those buttons are perfect for him. I've never seen the Sheepish Designs pattern. Looks like an oldie but goodie! Have a great evening!

With all the other stuff you did, you managed to get a lot of stitching. So many cute finishes.
