Gee Golly Gosh - -

Oh Fish Hooks!  I ran out of floss on the Holly & Hearts.  So I ordered some more and just had to find something new to work on.


I have the right edge border left to do.  Like I said - I just had to start something new......

I started the Victoria Sampler Stitcher's Heart Tray project.  I am in the stitcherama in September but I am thinking I might not wait that long to do the finishing on this one.  I want to use the tray.

So Close to being done





I worked very hard on the pink banner at the bottom.  I now have the bottom border and a border on the far right side to do.  Then - Then - Then this one is done.

Holly & Hearts Part 3 progress





I did make some progress.  I am hoping to finish this one soon.  I am being so good to not start the one that I really want to work on.  Today I did take a break and went outside.  It is 75 degrees out there.  The trees have buds on them.  Everything is brown and dirty looking.  We are all eager to see green and colors soon.  I did some raking to clean up out front.  I am glad to have the alphabet part done.  It does look interesting.   I am eager to see how this whole thing looks.

Happy Easter 2014





Part 3 of Holly & Hearts by Lizzie Kate.  I have part of the alphabet done and the house except for the window parts.  I keep working away at it.  I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter celebrated with family.  It is so important.

Holly & Hearts Part 2 is done!





Part Two is done!  I am moving on to Part Three but I do have to say it is a struggle as I really want to work on my VS Tray project.  I am also busy with the new sewing machine.  Mending is now a breeze and I love it.  I am also making Easter eggs.  I hope to get a photo soon.  So many things are getting done and need to be done.  It is a busy time.  Today I see little sprouts in the ground that just might be my purple tulips.

So Many Projects - - -






I have so many things that I want to work on and so little time to do it all.  I have been trying to keep with this current project.  Lizzie Kate's Holly & Hearts.  This is about half of Part Two.  So I am half way done with this project.  Meanwhile my package arrived from Victoria Sampler The Stitcher's Heart and tray project.  I love, love, love it.  Meanwhile I have some new goodies to do on the fancy embroidery machine.  Easter Eggs!  So many things to work on.  Tomorrow may be a good play day.  Tonight we can expect sleet and snow.  All that after being close to 80 degrees yesterday.

Ahhhh Spring!

Spring has arrived.  The weather is warm.  The snow is melting everywhere and is completely gone from the deck.  The trees are sporting some buds.  My eyes are itching so tree pollens are getting ready to burst out!

I did get some stitching done.  While on my Boston trip, I started this little project.  It is called Love Is.... and was designed by Summer House Stitche Works.  I finished it this morning.  It needs the finishing process but it is ready to go.

 Then I moved on and finished up Part One of the Holly and Hearts by Lizzie Kate.  I plan to continue on with part two.  The windows are still open this evening and it smells so nice.  It has been a very long winter and spring is much appreciated.
