A Prairie Schooler Year ~ March

 
My year of Prairie Schooler finishes from over the years continues...
I have several for March, but I think that this is my favorite!
I'm always so happy to see it each March 1st.

 
I softened it up a bit using one thread over two on 28 count linen and tea dying after I finished it.

 
And I added little "x's" to the seams.

 
This similar design I stitched a decade or two (or more) ago...

 
A favorite Easter piece with coordinating rick rack along the seam.

 
Another stitch from many years ago in my "over one" days when my eyesight was better.

 
Here you can get some perspective of the size.

 
This scissor fob was stitched over one on 22 count.
 
It's been fun when I pull out each month's decorations, to dig through and find my Prairie Schooler favorites from over the years... So many memories tied up in the stitching :)
"The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake."
~Psalm 23:1-3
 
Blessings, Patti
