March Birthday Village

I'm still here, but life seems to have interfered with my crafting so not much to show. I did manage to complete the March installment on the San-man Birthday Village SAL. Looks like the little girl in the pink house has come out to play on the swing. I completely re-designed her. I just wasn't happy with the way the original came out, and even with my "no frogging" policy, I felt compelled to re-do her. Proportions are a little weird on this design, but I do like her better now.




And for SherryA, who asked for the link to the double flower dishcloth pattern from this old post, here it is.. Click Here

Such a cute addition to your little village, Annie. I like the yellow bird in the tree, too!

I'm with you--I haven't even picked up my needle all week except to sew on a few beads... Sometimes real life just has to take precedence, doesn't it? Hope you get a bit more crafting time this week...
