Hello again friends!

It's hard to believe that it is already March! And even harder to believe that the month is nearly half over! Yesterday, our temps were up to 70 and today it is way cooler and rainy  - typical PNW weather! I was going to try to make March a "Stitch Every Day" month, but that just didn't happen. I really don't think I was meant to "plan".... other than to just pick up whatever I feel like stitching on any given day. I guess that could be called a plan...maybe!

I also meant to blog way more often this year, but February went by in a blur. Technology and I were not friends and I couldn't get my computer and camera to cooperate with each other at all. I missed all my SAL posts for the month so I will have to catch up next month. I did post my TUSAL on the Facebook group though.

And my stitching bug decided to take a vacation as well...wanted to get out of the cold, I guess! I did have a finish, and did a bit on my full coverage piece, but I really do not like the fabric I am using for that. It is a Monaco (Charles Craft, I think) but it feels a little stiff. Is there anything I can do about that, I wonder? My finish was one of my YOWs pieces from this year. It is To Be Thankful from Country Cottage Needleworks ... I changed the fllowers from white to yellow... sorry for the wrinkles

Most of the month was taken up with watching the Olympics, which I really enjoyed; doing our taxes, (which I didn't enjoy at all!), spending lots of time with my husband because he was off for a week (and talking about his maybe retiring this summer - YAY!) and paying off our mortgage (triple YAY!!!) Oh...and I also made a cannoli cake for my daughter for her birthday cake, which was a big hit! So the month flew by and we are well into the Year of the Dog.

So far this month, I've worked some on Light of Peace and Strawberry Fields, but I don't have pictures I can share here yet. I also had a fun time at Acorns and Threads at their Market Day. Jeanine was kind enought to bring back a bunch of things for me and I added to my bag when I was there. There were so many great designs at Market this year. Here is a pic of what I got that day:

I just want to start them all right away!

The birds are singing, the doggies are all sleeping...seems like a perfect time to stitch, so that is what I am going to do! Thank you to everyone who takes the time to still read my blog, and for your comments. It really means a lot. Please remember to be kind to yourself and to others, and to be grateful for every day.

'Til next time,



  1. Your stitched piece is lovely. You did so well with the stash. I really miss not having a LNS anywhere near me. In fact yours is probably the closest but that involves a 3 hour trip to Portland! Oh well, it would be worth it!

  2. Oh my, Lynda, you were a busy bee back in February. And you even had the time to stitch and finish your lovely piece. I do hope that the missing stitchy bug will return soon.
    Your new haul from market is a dream. It could also be my haul, you know because I really love what I see. That should make the stitchy bug return immediately :)))

  3. I agree with you time if flying lately. Of course the past 20 years have flew by since my son will be 20 in April. Congrats on the finish. Great new haul. I don't blame you for wanting to start them all. Also Major Congrats on paying off your mortgage.

  4. Wonderful new stash haul, Lynda. It certainly sounds like you have had a very full month so you are forgiven for not blogging as often as you would like.

  5. This is one of my favourite sayings! I love the fabric you chose to stitch it on.
    You certainly know how to keep busy, great haul!

  6. Great article..I am looking so forward to your blogcomment and
    I love your page on your post.. That is so pretty..

  7. You have a huge pile of projects there. Keep up the good work!

  8. Congratulations, wonderful work, it's beautiful so much and good idea on site.
