March Challenge!

It is "reveal day" for the March Monthly Challenge at Jayne's Attic. This month our design was Alphabet Tree, by Blue Ribbon Designs, (a huge Thank you to Belinda for letting us use this retired design).
I made mine into a needleroll using an orphan piece of unlabelled pale blue evenweave and Carries Creations in Irish Kiss, which is lovely mix of fresh springlike greens and looks quite at home in my primroses, don't you think?

There are huge number of finishes in this months challenge, and the album is well worth a look (link in the Group Activities section of the forum at Jayne's Attic).

Can't wait to see what we get for April!

Beautifully finished Christine. You're right there are lots of lovely finishes this month. I used your tray finish this time and am really pleased with it. Can't reveal it on my blog yet though as I'm sending it to someone:)

I love your choice of soft pastel colours, and great finish too.

Love the needleroll, nice colour choices, its super to browse the album and get ideas for future months finishes. This activity is certainly a fun and exciting one for all i think.

Like Sally I used your tray design and want to say a big thank you for explaining how to do this.

The needleroll is really pretty and the standard overall on reveal day gets better every month. Its a lovely way of learning new tecniques.

Your needleroll is beautiful Christine. The album is full of wonderful finishes this month. I really must try your tray finish sometime.

I love primroses - always reminds me of when I lived in Cornwall (Helston and Porthleven).
