Tada! March is done!
The latest addition to my triangle pool is March. It's all about friends....new friends and old friends....
It started with another serendipity moment. I purchased a couple of books from my new friend, Robin and then started experimenting with a couple of her stitch combinations. Of course, I liked them so much, that I decided to use them on my March piece. Isn't it lucky that I actually stitched them on a triangle? Okay, that started me on a search for complimentary embellishments. I found a bag of shells from my friend Wendy, some purple pearls for my older sister (it's her favourite colour), green beads for my younger one and the face from a play date with Cheryl & Deb. I grew up in Vancouver, B.C. and I love everything about the ocean. Granted, the shells would be different, but the feeling is exactly the same. I remember the sound of the waves, the smell of the sea, childhood memories, seaside adventures and the total feeling of calm that washes over me as I gaze out over my oldest friend.
