february 17 -long time gone

I have not been keeping up with this blog like I is all going along with the stitching funk I have been in...I don't know what's wrong but I just can't seem to get myself going. Anyway, I do have a few things to share...

We (well, actually my DH) decided it was time to get rid of our old carpet. This had to do with two things...the carpet is getting pretty's light colored, and with 4 furbabies running around, plus 2 humans...well you get the idea...also, my sister and niece are coming to visit for a few day..tonight actually. My sister has never seen our house (she lives 3000 miles away) and DH loves to make a good impression! So...we had wood floors put in. I must say that I really do love them and I'm glad we did it...I just don't know about the timing!


and after:

I have also received some fun goodies in the mail over the past few weeks:

this adorable stitched block from Petra...this was for the block SAL with the Stitcher's Timeout group...the colors are so much brighter in person

this wonderful ornament stitched by Carol...

my Valentine's Day sock exchange from Rita....

and this adorable kitty pin cushion from Pauline....

Thanks again to all of you!

So the last time I stitched was on Super Bowl Sunday...I didn't get much done because I was too busy watching the game and cheering on the Saints. But here is my small start on Tea with Jane Austen from The Sampler Girl.

And finally, my very late TUSAL update. Not much added this month...again! I think maybe I'll look for a new container to inspire me!

And finally finally...even thought I only have one sister...and we haven't seen each other in almost 2 is the real reason they are making the little Thomas the Tank Engine fan..."toot toot"!

Thanks for visiting!
