March Small & FFOs

A couple of days early, my March small for the 2017 Smalls SAL run by Heather of Stitching Lotus.

This is 3 Violets Humbug, my first Just Nan project. I used the called-for threads on a gray-blue Cashel linen; the color of the linen is shown accurately in the second set of pics. I really enjoyed stitching this, and making it up into the cute little humbug. I now want to stitch so many Just Nan things! I've kitted up Spring Mouse in a House for April. :D

I feel like Santa forgot to visit my house on Christmas Eve or something.

I think the Spring temperatures are giving me Spring Fever, too. I'm restless. I want to clean all the things, start all the projects, finish all the projects, travel around the world, climb the walls.... And I'm in a weird mental place where I want to talk to people, but I also want to be completely alone. I was deep in the throes of this last night, and I solved it by talking to my dog. He's a good listener and low maintenance company, so it was perfect.

Anyway, I've been stitching:
