February & March - Sand, Sea & Cross Stitch - 17.04.16

It was my original intention to stitch one of this blocks each month but I got a bit carried away and got three done this month.

As I said in my previous post the design is charted for DMC but I decided to switch out some of the colours for other threads I have in my stash.  The solid border is stitched in Pushkina from Fiberlicious, the inner dotted border is stitched in Lemon & Lime from Dinky Dyes, the month is stitched in Spring Crocus from Crafty Kitten, the red is Terracotta from Dinky Dyes and the yellow Nullabor from Dinky Dyes.   I added an additional colour in the sail of the boat for February and this was another thread from Crafty Kitten - August 2013 Limited Edition.  Everything else I have stitched in the recommended DMC.

Hoping in May I can get the next three months done but will see what happens.

Keep stitching and smiling

Such a beautiful design, and a great way to use some hand-dyed threads!
