Greetings from Finland: March's Goal is Reached

Tadaa!!!

There they are my first ones for TTS.
Because I have earlier stitched Christmas Joy block, I replaced Tis the Season with it. I'll do it in June.

I'm embroidering with Atalie's hand-dyed thread. I'm absolutely pleased with it, but yet I wanted little bit more intense to the blocks.

So I stitched the stars of 'Bon Noel Birdies' block with DMC's yellow and gold (1 strand of both colour).

Now they slightly glitter...

They are just beautiful, Satu
I stitched my GJ in different colors and it has been an awakening to do these in only one...I thought the stars needed to be done in gold...so happy to see I wasn't the only one.

Your blocks are just stunning!! I love your fabric and thread choice. I never would have thought to use different colour strands in one needle! I'm always a bit slow. *grin* Sandy H.
