March Check - In

Good afternoon everyone.
Today is the last Friday of the month, which means, it is Smalls check-in day....

I completed a really sweet piece for my March check-in...
"Love Muffins" from PinoyStitch ...
The piece was stitched on 18 count, white Aida and I used only 1 strand of thread.
(I thought I would hate stitching on 18 count, but I really enjoyed it.)

I also managed to finish my March magazine SAL piece...
"Luck O' the Irish" from the April 2017 issue of Just Cross Stitch magazine...

I made a new start on the April fairy...
The fairy patterns are by Lucie Heaton...
...the fabric is 14 count, light lime green Aida, that I hand dyed.

Oh, I forgot to share some very exciting stitchy news in my last post...
I have been searching for Dragon Age: Inquisition cross stitch patterns, because it is a game that both my husband and I enjoy. (That is very rare.) 
I really, really wanted to stitch the main characters from the game, but I could never find them....
So, I contacted the super talented Roslyn (FangirlStitches) and she created the most awesome pattern ever...
Two characters are complete (minus a couple French knots, which will come later) and I am having a blast working on the piece; cannot wait to have it finished!
Thanks again so very much, Ros!

Well my friends, that is all for today... to get some more stitching done!
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
