Theme-A-Licious March Madness (week 4)

The theme for this month is March Madness, "Work on something different every day... it's madness... of the funnest possible kind."  I used the Random Number Generator to pick a number from 1-95 for a WIP from my WIPocalypse list to stitch on each day.  I'll post an update every weekend with the choices for the prior week.

March 22 - #51, Yo Ho Ho Ho:  I stitched the pirate Santa's hat.

March 23 - #46, Christmas Ark:  I stitched more of the elephant using Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe overdyed floss.
Christmas Ark update #2
Christmas Ark update #2

March 24 - #87, Best of Friends:  I stitched a little more in the lower left corner. This whole design is printed on the Aida so I don't have to look at a chart. It's so easy! The colors will all wash out with water when I am done.

This is how it will look when finished (some day):

March 25 - #78, Spring Sampler:  I stitched a row using lemon-lime Perle cotton.  All the floss is from Dinky Dyes.
Spring Sampler update #1
March 26 - #85, Believe:  I stitched more of Santa's red coat.  This is on 28 ct black linen.
Believe update #1

March 27 - #26, Christmas Sampler:  I stitched another reindeer on this Prairie Schooler design.
Christmas Sampler update #3
March 28 - #35, Easter Hang-Up:  I finished the basket and stitched the background using Dragonflylotus Handspun Handpainted wool thread in Sunlit Quackenbush, but the 5-yard skein (1 ply) wasn't enough with only 6 stitches left at the bottom to do, so I'll just change the border design a bit, unless anyone out there has a little 6-inch piece to spare?
Easter Hang-Up update #2
My final Theme-a-licious blog post will be on April 1, with the last 3 days of the month and all the March Madness links.  Happy Stitching, everyone!

Great progress on all these pieces Debbie. Can you match that dark color close enough to finish the six stitches.

Great progress! Do you keep all your WIP's kitted up with thread? I try too but always wind up borrowing from projects and then forgetting which color I borrowed :(

I did a double-take on Three Little Girls, LOL!! That is really interesting...I've never seen a design printed right on the fabric like that. Someday I will get Google Glass and hack it to overlay my pattern on top of what I'm stitching. =)

Never seen a color coded pattern before. The three girls are absolutely gorgeous!
Well done on your WIP's.Such a great variety!
