March Stitchalong: Happy Birthday, Feeling Stitchy!

Stitchalong1

March is a very special month on Feeling Stitchy - our blog is turning 5 years old! In honor of our birthday, someone very special created a free pattern set for this month's stitchalong - Mollie Johanson of Wild Olive! By the way, that little piñata was stitched and photographed by Mollie herself - eeeep!

I was beyond thrilled when I saw these adorable little patterns - such sweetness:

Even sweeter were the colors Mollie chose - perfect Fiesta colors - which is, by the way, a huge street party held in my hometown of San Antonio, Texas every year. Whether she planned it or not, these colors remind me of all that and make me extremely happy! She was wonderful enough to include them in her photo, in case you'd like to use them as inspiration:

Are you guys as excited as I am about this stitchalong?! To join, stitch any or all of Mollie's motifs for this month's stitchalong, tag them "MarchStitchalong2012" and add them to the embroidery pool.

Can't wait to see your stitching! :)

  5. Beautiful patterns, and happy birthday! this post had a wonderful side-effect at our home - my daughter walked up and saw "feeling stitchy" on the cake, announced she was also feeling stitchy, and is now sitting happily with her hoop, hessian and wool needle doing her thing while I cough and sneeze and try to relax for a bit! thank you!
