Stitching from Stash 2014 - March Update

I only managed one afternoon of stitching this month, but that's better than no stitching at all, right?

Eventually, this will be a shamrock. The design is rather simplistic, having been converted from a charted crochet pattern. The burlap "canvas" is 6" square and I have two of them in my stash. I know they were purchased locally; either at Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Jo~Ann or Walmart. I'm using a dark green #5 perle for the stitching.

If I like how this turns out, I'm considering stitching a series of 12 single motifs and displaying one each month, on a little easel.

Money spent: $0

My birthday is coming up soon (April 4th), so maybe, just maybe, I'll end up with some free stash money!
