Can you believe it’s March already?! I’m sure some of you are saying already or finally?! I work in a school setting so to me this means it is the beginning of the end. In just slightly over three months the school year will end. It’s almost time for tulips, Cubs opening day in baseball, golf, swimming and generally warmer weather. It will fly by!
I thought I would share our March wall hanging that we made many, many, MANY moons ago. I am sorry I cannot find or recall the pattern name, so I’m unable to share that right now. It basically represents in each quadrant how March can come in like a lion or a lamb, St. Patrick’s Day and how windy it is for kite flying. Here is a closeup of the friendly lion:
Doesn’t his face just make you smile?! He has a mane and tail-end made from yarn that was unraveled to form the curls.
Here is a closeup of the lamb:
The lamb’s body is made from sherpa, which is often used in the linings for coats, hats, boots, slippers and mittens. We have an abundance of sherpa because we bought it en masse after a mitten class. We were going to make tons of mittens for everyone we knew. Needless to say, that didn’t quite happen but I will be happy to share a post in the future regarding how easy and cute those mittens are to make. 😉
Don’t let the winds of March blow you away! What are you looking forward to this spring and summer?
