Happy March!

It is finally March! That means spring is right round the corner, right? Right? Well, maybe, but right now we are just waiting for a snow storm to start. We are supposed to get between 15 and 20 cm of snow today, possibly more. Now, if this was January, I would be super excited. But, by the beginning of March, I’m starting to dream of pretty flowers and warm days. I suppose if I can’t have them in real life, I can at least stitch them.

This is the March chart for the Joyful World SAL, a wonderful free stitch-along from Maja of The Snowflower Diaries. (Yes, I did get it done by my goal of the end of February. ūüėÄ ) Each month, on about the 10th, she releases the chart for the coming month (e.g. the March chart in February), and also includes translations for the month name in over six languages. I’ve chosen to stitch the months in French because I think it suits the style of the design.

I’m stitching the SAL using DMC threads (using Maja’s provided colour suggestions) on a huge piece of linen from Enchanting Lair (colourway Heritage). I have no idea how I will finish it when it is all done, but I’m pretty sure it will look great. ūüėČ
