Theme-a-licious 2014 March Madness & April Showers

March's Theme was an oldie but a goodie :) March Madness, the plan? Work on something different every single day in March, madness but of the funnest kind.

My March Madness was a little different, for me it was madness to think I'd get any sort of stitching done! At least that's what I thought until last week, however I have been stitching, it's just been on one project.

No photo of progress as there's not much change since my last post however I can talk about April's theme.

April's theme was a mystery theme at first, meaning that one hadn't been picked out yet. Now it's been revealed as April Shower's: work on any water themed stitching. Brilliant, this means I can continue working on Super Mario as I have finally hit the water part of the chart!

My aim for April Showers is to FINISH Super Mario :)

an update and a pattern

a friend of mine asked to see my whole mario project so far so I thought I'd post it up here as well

it's getting there!!

Also I realised that I never posted up the pattern for the Yoshi's I stitched for Lee's Valentine gift so here is Yoshi Love in all it's glory :) threads listed are DMC, just click to enlarge the pattern then right click to save it :)

WIPocalpse 2014- March

So this post is about...10 days overdue. Oh well.

This month I have been working on Super Mario thru the ages. I won't post pics as I did two posts ago and not much has changed since then.

Our topic for the month is about where we like to stitch.

Generally I like to either stitch in the living room on the sofa in front of the telly, not always productive as I end up watching telly instead of stitching so I tend to wait until there's a friends marathon or something similar to stitch like this as i don't really need to watch the screen. Its more of a background noise thing.

Since getting my own tv in February for my birthday I now tend to stitch in my bedroom, it's not connected to the aerial yet so I just watch dvd's or netflix through my games console instead of actual tv but I've found its much less distracting and I'm actually making more progress.

Hopefully next month I will post on time and have pictures to share, our topic is going to be about stash organization!

Stitch from Stash 2014-March

3 months in and I haven't cracked yet!

Yes it's March and I still haven't added to my stash, I've also not started anything new apart from a Valentine's gift but I am making progress on some WIP's so that's something.

I won't show pics of Super Mario through the ages as I showed it in my last post but
I have also been working on my 'Rainbow Road' granny stripe blanket (yarn stash is still huge though!)

So that's it for my SFS2014 March report, no new starts or finishes but some progress made and most importantly, NO SPENDING :)

Theme-a-licious March Madness, TUSAL & WIPocalypse posts coming soon!

IHSW March 2014

So this weekend just gone was International Hermit & Stitch Weekend. I didn't sign up for it this month as my grandparents were coming down I didn't think I'd get anytime to stitch before going back to work on Sunday.

However Sunday evening I had no plans as I sat down and stitched and stitched and stitched!

This was my progress before I started (excuse the chocs and DS, I sent this pic to Lee to show him what my plans were for the evening)
 And this was the progress I'd made when I stopped! I've finished a page and started a new one, the this blue line you can see at the bottom is the bottom of the design! The end is in sight!

So that's it for my IHSW report, stay tuned for Themealicious March Madness & Stitch From Stitch March posts coming soon!
