Well it’s been a busy month! I have that day job which often puts a damper on my stitching abilities. That being said, pursue on! This months Block features a fun and colorful pot of gold and a rainbow shamrock! I am a bit behind in the stitching side but here’s the design for all to see and stitch.

Some things I wanted to express. Some stitchers don't like to have a lot of different colors to deal with in working a design. I have added two for the ribbon at the base of the heart. I just felt it gave some depth if the stitcher didn't want to use the additional ribbon. I also believe that the design would be cute if the ribbon didn't have the two colors of blue, but only uses one color. That is at the stitcher's discretion.

Good Evening! It has been a full day here. I wish I could say it was a full day of stitching but - No. Being a working household we have those fun things, such as laundry, to accomplish before sitting and doing the relaxation activities. That being said, I wanted to share how far I have gotten even in the couple hours I have been able to stitch. I’ll be back to post more later.
It’s been a good day of stitching! I made some adjustments in my pattern because I didn’t have the exact colors I wanted but I think they are going to work out quite nicely. Next I will need to complete the background, add the month and then the ribbon and it will be ready to go to the framers.

I thought it would be fun to stitch this design together! I have gathered all my materials and will post a few images while we stitch along! Ultimately you could choose to use the block as part of a 2018 calendar. The intended design size for the 2018 calendar (201 x 150 stitches = 14.36" x 10.71"). This design size does not include any extra fabric so don't forget to include what you would need for framing. You can find the pattern at my website at KeenStitches.

I love hearts but in this design I added a little different touch with a real ribbon and bow versus making a stitched one in the design. I love when a design has depth and adding the ribbon gives a 3D feel to the design. I will be finished with the stitched design shortly and I will post the finished design. To view the design please visit my KeenStitches website and look for Block of the Month
Thank you for visiting and look for an upcoming post about the next block of the month! I just released the block of the month for February and March! I will be also giving a sneak peek at how to incorporate all the blocks of the month into a 2018 calendar!
