Here is the March Stitch Along Gallery. I hope more will join in this month. It's a lot of fun, doesn't take a lot of fabric or time and gives you a chance to be creative. What are you waiting for? Here are the rules:

March Week One

Amanda sent along some fabrics. She chose "land" for her theme. She hasn't cut her strips yet, probably waiting to hear what we do next :)

Amanda's fabrics and threads for "land" theme

Jennifer kind of chose between two "sea" and "land" or perhaps "sky" and "land". You can read about it on her blog.

And Jennifer's threads...

I am yet to decide because I want you to decide for me. Please leave a comment at the bottom of my post as to which theme you think I should use. Read my blog here.

Marilyn joined in this week too! She has using a land/sea theme. I see she used threads down to the very last strand, just like me! Way to go Marilyn.

Amanda sent in her block with a little dinosaur applique. How cute is that?

Jennifer made her selection into land and added a palm tree. That's cute too! You can read about it on her blog.

I need to make a decision on whether to have one or two Nemos on my block. I hope you will help me decide. Leave a comment below or on my latest blog post.

Great to see Marilyn using something a little different - fussy cutting works! Find out more on Marilyn's blog.

March Week Four

These really cute blocks are turning out wonderful. Marilyn added stitching to her piece as well as couching in some white cloud in the sky. Perfect addition.
