The March SALs

 I caught up on my SAL stitching a while ago, but as we had Felix' best friend staying over for a couple of days, I didn't get around to posting! I'll try to catch up with everything the coming week.

My SAL stitching was a bit sparse in March, due to the other 'SALs' going on - the Mischievous New Start challenge and the one-a-day on the Puppeteer. I still got things to show!

First of all, I am all caught up on the Sampler SAL. By rights I shouldn't be, but Magical is on a bit of a hiatus right now (she just needs a break after overdoing it on the SALs last year, but I'm sure she'll be back in due time, and I have lots of stitching to tide me over until then). So I stitched the first three parts of the second page, and will now put this away until she releases the next one (sorry for the bad picture, it's fresh out of the hoop):

From previous SALs, I stitched one of the 2015 ornaments of the month, which I already showed started and finished - I think there are three more of these left to stitch now:

And then the last one I got caught up on was the temperature stitch - finished March, including a special flower on my birthday! It's still being pretty chilly right now, but you can see on the monthly averages (the names of the months) that it's getting slightly warmer. I also finished the top border and will continue working down the sides next month.

Leonore: Nice progress on your Sampler, I like your temp design, do you choose the stitch to use or does someone else do so, just curious.
Beautiful ornament.

Well,done on catching up with the SALs. And yes, there's always plenty to do if there is a pause in one!

Nice round-up of everything. Good luck getting back to all of the SALs!
