monthly cross stitch series! — March

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold:

when it is summer in the light,

and winter in the shade. – Charles Dickens

Today we bring you the third design in our monthly cross stitch blog series, designed by Terry Loewen. Stitch this weekend to display for St. Patrick’s Day, and in plenty of time to welcome the March winds that will blow winter away! (Will you PLEASE blow winter away, March winds?)

The idea behind this cross stitch blog series is to offer you an embroidered design of same size to change every month just as you change your calendar picture.
