A Quickie Theme-a-licious Update? (or not)

This month's Theme-a-licious theme is:

March Madness

Work on something different every day...it's madness...of the funnest possible kind.

Frankly, I didn't think that would work very well for me this month since I have so many obligation stitches to do.

I did, however, finish a monster-sized section on a Band Sampler round robin. I needed to match the section of the stitcher next to me, and hers was HUGE!!! I would say that this section was around triple the size of most of our Band Sampler RR sections. On top of which, I had some difficulties getting that Celtic knot lined up right. So, a lot of frogging happened. The finished piece was beautiful, though.







I have two other round robin pieces I need to be working on, but I hope to sprinkle some stitches onto some other pieces in between.

I want to say a great big THANK YOU, and Welcome Aboard to all my new followers. It was just a couple of weeks ago that I was at 85 followers. At last count, I'm up to 123!! Wow!

Remember that the deadline to enter my giveaway is March 31. Good luck to all of you!

I'm sorry that I've been slacking on the Hunky Friday thing again. I keep getting sick. I feel like this winter will never end....

Until next time,

Hugs and Stitches

Your band just looks amazing! Did you use a chart or just add bits and pieces from different places?
