Slow Sunday Stitching March Clue Complete!

I finished the March clue of the Linen And Threads - Mystery Sampler SAL.  This is a group that I found on Facebook.  The pattern is FREE!!!

My stitches are not perfect.  Some of them are in the wrong place.  Some of them I made a big goof design choice and put them elsewhere.  I did learn that I need to count several times and put the big things in first.  I got all happy working with the green floss and thought I was stitching in the right spot to find out it wasn't.  When I went to put the big things in they didn't fit right and I had to rip out a few stitches.  Some of them I left to show my "learning talents".

Now I'll go back and start working on the January clue.  I'm not that thrilled with my peacock feathers.  The colors just don't look right to me and some of them aren't in the right place.  I'm ripping out the feathers (not all the blue body of the bird) and starting over with what I have learned.

On a happy note, BETTY returned this week!  She has been gone for over a month -- maybe close to two months.  I think she was being fed in one of the neighbor's barns, but I'm not sure.  I'm not really a cat person, but I love having Betty around as long as she doesn't try to get into the house when we are trying to catch the school bus.  Silly Betty!

I'm linking up at Kathy's Quilts for  Slow Sunday Stitching.

Slow Sunday Stitching


  1. March looks lovely! Glad Betty is back looking good.

  2. It is so easy to stitch in the wrong spot in counter cross stitch. We have all done this, several times! Your project is looking good!

  3. Your stitchery is lovely, I just cannot do that anymore.

  4. Pretty stitchery... Counting is always the hard part on that and it is so easy to get things in the wrong spot.

  5. So pleased that Betty has returned safely, you must have wondered if you would see her again.

  6. I have been doing a bunch of ripping out cross-stitches myself, but sometimes I just say "Oh well" and continue on. I claim that it is my own personalization.....and really who is going to know except me. Your stitching looks wonderful.
