Hey, guess what, everybody?? I got Coke to put up a billboard just a block from my loft for us! See?
OK, not really.
I mean, that billboard really is a block from our place, but it's not JUST for us. It occurred to me, as I was reading your fabulous ideas for March Madness, that it's possible most of my overseas blogging buddies have no idea what this phrase means in the States. In fact, as I consulted Wikipedia, I found that my European friends may have even thought I was talking about tough female hares fighting off males! Although, I must admit that I loved Topcho's report with her picture of the mad March Hare from Alice in Wonderland. =)
Well, in the US, March Madness means basketball. Now don't be too disappointed; when DF Teresa and I did our first private theme-along, we said, "Well, March is March Madness. How can we change that to be stitching-related?" We quickly eliminated a project slam-dunk contest as an option. ;)
Enough talking! On to the stitching!
The Sparkly Compote of Decree has been good to me this month!
Here are links to the reports I did, followed by the highlight reel. =)
Snow Catchers by Fanci That.
Call of the Sea by With My Needle (Ellen Chester).
And since the last post, I've worked on She Maketh Fine Linen by Moss Creek Designs:
Aaaannnd Castles by the Sea by Teresa Wentzler:
Here is the sea, great and wide
where Your teeming creations hide.
Above, the ships sail to and fro
and Leviathan doth sport below.
I made it rhyme. I like "sport" better than "play" in other translations. This dragon definitely looks like he's "sporting" to me. =) Of course, that kind of leaves out the castle.... Anyone have any other suggestions?
I did a swap on Wavy and Castles. I pulled Castles for Monday originally, but I knew I would not have much time to stitch and I wanted more time with this one. So I crossed my fingers and picked again. Out came Wavy, which I could make visible progress on in the small amount of time I had.
So how is March Madness treating you? Please add your link below (to your wrap-up post). Our next post will be on the 31st, when we'll wrap up the Madness and talk about Amazon April! And don't worry if you haven't posted before...just jump in whenever.
