However blue is not the only colour choice and there have been some lovely colourful examples of the March Stitch Along pattern appearing in the Embroidery pool. I particularly like ticklepea's take on this month's pattern, as she's used the alphabet Corvus provided, as a basis for a sampler.

And talking of colourful, how's this for a colourful octopus? (And I love the phrase stitched out).

Some great work is beginning to appear in the embroidery pool and I'll be doing a full round up at the end of the month. Meanwhile it is not too late to have a go at this pattern, you can find the pattern link in this post here or if you search on Flickr under the tag MarchStitchAlong.
