My first Flip-it

I am pleased to say I have finished my March Flip-it and have made it into an ornament. I was going to buy a nice frame and swop the month inside each time.... but decided to make the hanging ornie instead after seeing someone else make one like that. So here it is -

I do have it hung up at the moment even though it is May !! I have now started August in the hope I will finish this in plenty of time!!

I also finished my next Charity square, this is for a "monsters" blanket.... he is a kind of cute monster. I love stitching these charity squares as most of the charts I pick are ones I would have no reason to stitch otherwise. Next I am doing a cute Margaret Sherry puppy.

I am really trying to put lots of work into my Family Tree this week too as I don't seem to have done so much recently. I would love to get this finished by the end of the year! I have done a lot but when you look there is still loads more to do.

The weather is supposed to be really nice again this weekend, so I may even get to stitch in the garden !!

I love the fabbie you have used for the St Paddy's ornament. It looks much better than on the chart I have got. Now I know how good it can look, I must get some made for next year. If I cant use them here in ireland, where can I???
Lovely monster too!
