March Smalls SAL Post

Other than the fun Easter Blog Hop in my previous post. (If you hopped by for that just scroll down a bit.) Today is also the check in for the Smalls SAL. The purpose of this SAL is to inspire us to finish at least one small piece each month. I joined a few years ago and picked a year long monthly design set to stitch. I've always loved these monthly themes and it was just the push I needed to stick to it the whole year. This year I'm stitching up Durene Jones Calendar...
My plan is to stitch each month during the month on the calendar hopefully. This month I had a challenge. Since Durene designs this for UK holidays Mother's Day was the celebrated event in March. Here in the states ours isn't until May. I didn't want to change the May to the March design because it's been really cold still and pretty flowers aren't to be found just yet either. So I thought I would try to shoot for something from our Irish heritage and do a Saint Patrick's Day themed cake change. Here is what I came up with...
I am so happy with the finished result. Plus it's finished and on display. 3 down. Wohoo!
