March comes to an end ...

Update of Needleprint Beatrix Potter Quaker, last day of the month and time to post my progress on the SAL blog. The ladies have made good progress again this month, there are 100 ladies in this SAL and lots of variations in colour and thread.

End of the month also means time to remind myself how much spare time or should that be essential time i have spent on my hobby and what was achieved

Papillon Creations SAL 2008 'How Does Your Garden Grow' - only 3 months late!
Monthly Christmas Ornament ~ Christmas Bouquet - Marie Chantel Lord
Monthly Challenge ~ The Workbasket - Berthi's Birdbath
Birthday card for DS
Knitted a pink bunny
Finally got round to making up The Cats Whiskers, Peacock Stitching Chair

LHN Wool needlebook and fob SAL with Karen
Beatrix Potter SAL - 6 motifs added this month

LHN Travelling stitcher

I always think i haven't done a lot in a month but when i see it written down at the end of the month it makes me realise that its not just the stitching time, its the making up that takes time too..... that chair for instance 14 hours!!! thats 2 days work for some folks LOL

Hope you all had a productive March, roll on April. I've updated the sidebar with the additional things i need to do in April but i will be spending some time thinking and planning for a couple of birthday gifts for May, i need to be organised and get cracking on those too.

Love and {hugs}


  1. You really got a lot done with the NBPSAL it looks great! And Yes that chair is an achievement in itself .
    And you got the Papillion finished!! So well done!!

  2. Great progress Julie. I can see me spending quite some time looking through the SAL blog tonight ;-)

  3. Well, you have been busy while I was gone.

    I like the bunny you made. Vary sweet.
