February 2024 progress report

 Good evening everyone,

Wow, February is in the rear view mirror and we are driving straight into March. 

So, over on Facebook I have tried to participate in the Magazine Monthly Challenge hosted by Robin and Carolyn. I love the idea of stitching out of my magazines.   I had 3 finishes, which is amazing to me. Some of these you have seen from earlier post in the month but I will recap February's Challenge.

The theme was In The Meadow.

I chose Baked Alaska by Glendon Place because of the blues and greens. Minimum stitch was 200 stitches. I converted floss to my own colors on 28 ct Lugana.

The acrostic was S N O W S H O E
