March Blog Header Revealed

March 2013 Blog Header

While creating my March Blog Header, I decided to mix it up a bit and include cross stitch as well as photos of the 'real thing' in nature.

Row #1: Photo of Pileated Woodpecker; Cross Stitch -  Elizabeth Spurlock, "Chickadee" from "Easy Cross Stitch Pattern a Day Calendar 2009"; Cross Stitch - Heart in Hand, "D is for Daffodil"; then down to photo of Violets; up to photo of Snowdrops; down to photo of Chickadee; over to photo of Tulips; Cross Stitch - Cedar Hill, "Bouquet for February".

Row #2: Cross Stitch - Lizzie Kate, "Spring Basket"; Cross Stitch - Cedar Hill, "Bouquet for March"; Cross Stitch - The Little Stitcher, "Snowdrop"; photo of Daffodils. 

Row #3: Cross Stitch - Cedar Hill, "Sweet Violets"; photo of Cyclamen; Cross Stitch - Praiseworthy Stitches, "Winter Bird Delight" (kit); Cross Stitch - Hands to Work, "Spring Violets".

Love them all, of course, but the Chickadee one is almost as accurate and excellent as the picture nearby! Wow! Real nice pattern! Hugs!

They're all wonderful! How did it get to be March already? lol!

I think this is my favorite banner yet. Because of the bird pictures. I love birds and flowers.

Love how closely the stitched chickadee matches the real life one! Very neat. :)
