1 Xmas Item for March

Finally found time to sit down at the keyboard ... just before bedtime.

I decided on a slightly different plan of attack for my Christmas Bunting as all the letters are traced on the one piece of material. If I list it here then I'll have somewhere to come back for a reference when I forget what I'm supposed to be doing :)

February - stitch 'C'
March - stitch 'H' and 'R'
April - stitch 'I' and 'S'
May - now I can cut away C,H,R and make them up.
June - complete making C,H,R
July - stitch 'M' and 'A'
August - cut away and make I,S
Septeber - stitch 'S' and 'T'
October - make up M,A
November - make up S,T
December - assemble bunting

Confused yet?  I am so I've colour co-ordinated to make sure I've covered each letter to stitch and make.  Better show what I've managed for March ... 'H' is complete and 'R' is almost.

I took R with me to work today to do a little stitching at lunch time and .... half way to work realized I'd left my glasses at home.  Arrrrgggghhh!

How did everyelf go with their Christmas sewing? If you would be so kind as to leave a comment when you post your 1 Xmas Item, I'll pop my jingle bells on and come over for a visit.

Have I missed adding your picture to the 1 Xmas Item page one month?  If you can't find your picture by the end of each month, don't be afraid to say "Hey - You missed mine". I won't mind a gentle reminder :)

Happy Christmas Sewing and enjoy viewing all the lovely creations this month.
