Fangirl February ~ Now That's a Wrap


It's the last day of the month...this is Leap Day to boot...so it's time for a Theme-a-licious check in. February's theme was: Send a Valentine to your favorite designer...or at least work on his or her designs for the month!

There is no way to hide the fact I LOVE Bent Creek with all my heart so I dug through my stash and came up with a few designs I've been wanting to start, closed my eyes and picked one. Bad Hare Day was the winner. This was so much fun to stitch that it went much faster than I expected. I  am incredibly pleased to show you a finish!


Design ~ Bad Hare Day
Designer ~ Bent Creek
Fabric ~ 28 count tea dyed Lugana
Fiber ~ DMC

How cool is that? I know you will forgive the fact that it is still very wrinkled and crumpled. This bun hasn't had his bath yet! Can you see I stitched my initials in red? I am so very attracted to alphabets...

Since Bad Hare Day was completed I decided to spend the rest of February stitching another favorite: Prairie Schooler... 


And my 8th ornament is finished! 8 Maid-a-milking was quick. Really, all of these blocks stitch up super fast. If I just closed my laptop planted my rear I could get them done in no time flat!

So...March Madness starts tomorrow. In March, our theme is: Stitch or knit on something different every day...it's madness...of the funnest possible kind. I dunno about something different every single day but we will see! If you'd like to join us on this theme-filled adventure visit Heather's blog It's Geek to Me for details.

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Your work is really lovely. I used to do a lot of cross stitch when my children [2 daughters and a son] were small and all three learned how to cross stitch :-)....happy happy memories.

Bad hare day is so adorable!

I think a new start every day would be too much for me, I'd be a nervous wreck by the end of week one!

You like Bent Creek? I never would have guessed :)

Bad Hare Day is adorable, Sharon, and I love your latest PS finish. I really should pull mine out and get started, too!

Good luck with March Madness--being a one-project-at-a-time stitcher, I could never handle that...

Love both of your finishes! But then what's not to love about a fluffy bunny?!?!?

Embrace the madness in March. It's kind of fun to try and work on different things each day. (I keep telling myself that at least!)
