March ornament and WIPocalypse update

I'm in the 2013 Ornament SAL, where we stitch a new ornament each month for any holiday.  My March ornament is Boule Bordeaux, a freebie from a French blog, Le blog de Vava.  I used DMC gold metallic 5282 and a red/pink variegated J&P Coats floss.  This is stitched on perforated paper with red felt on the back.  It is about 4" x 5".
Boule Bordeaux - FINISHED!

Started 2/9/2012, Finished 3/27/2013

Since my last WIPocalypse update in February, I finished Singing the Blues and made progress on my SAL pieces.  I sent this chart to Ruth in Ireland, so follow her blog to watch her bluebird come to life!
Singing the Blues - FINISHED!
On the monthly Prairie Schooler designs, I've been stitching the eagle for July. He is patiently waiting for his wings.  This will be done soon, and then I'll start the August square.
Summer & Winter (July) update #4
The Bear and the Bees by The Prairie Schooler is my Monday SAL with Linda.  I stitched the grass and some leaves.  Linda already finished hers.  We'll start a new Monday SAL next week.
The Bear and the Bees update #3
On Boo! Club by Lizzie*Kate, I finished Spiders and started on Eek!.

Linda, Sharon, and I will start a new Monday SAL on April 1, for Bothy Threads Cut Thru' designs.  Linda and Sharon will do Stable and I'll do Igloo.  Does anyone else want to stitch along with us?

You can see current pics of all of my WIPs on my WIPocalypse page. Remember to check in on Measi's blog with a link to your WIPocalypse update, too!

Really great ornament finish Debbie and I'm already sorting through colours in my head. I love the progress on all the pieces and can't wait to see your igloo cut thru along with the wizard of oz. I've just now finished my Kris Kringle piece. I'm really liking the Prairie Schooler pieces at the moment.

Great ornament Debbie. I love the sticky felt idea. Don't have that up here. July is almost done. Need to start that one. The Bear is almost done. You'll have it finished by next week. And more great progress on Boo Club.

Your stitching looks fantastic. I might join you in the new Monday SAL but I must just see if I have any 14 count big enough.
