March WIPocalypse

My March update is pretty minimal....I dedicated the majority of my stitching time to Coral, with a few small projects tossed in there!

Here's what Coral looked like just after my February update (1/1/2 pages):


And here's what she looks like for my March update (3 1/2 pages):


I'm hoping my April update brings a completed/framed piece!

I also completed a needlebook for a friend (though it wasn't officially on my WIPocalypse list, it's still a finished piece!)

Back!
And..... in my last post I shared the LHN pattern I won from Bekca.... after I received it I fell in love with it and went on the hunt for more LHN patterns online.  I won a few from eBay, one of which was a pattern for a scissor fob.  The pattern came in the mail yesterday and I just couldn't keep my hands off of it, so I finished off the fob last night:

It was actually a little kit, but I used my own fabric/floss so I could save the rest for the bigger pattern it came with.  I think it turned out so cute!

And there you have it....all my stitchy stuff from the past month!!  (you can see my full WIPocalypse list and update here)

I think that's the cutest needlebook I've ever seen. I bet your friend loves it.

Can you believe it, I love LHN designs but don't ever remember seeing Cut and Snip. Is that the design's name? Your finished scissors fob is so pretty.

Hugs,
Veronica.
