We are having a beautiful day here in SW Missouri, anyway in my area of SW Missouri. The temp is above 40 degrees, the sun is shining and the snow is melting. Fred has moved back to his back yard, at least for his day time enjoyment, but he will probably have to sleep in at night for a few more days. He and Maggie are in the back yard now running and playing.
Wayne and I are getting back to our normal routine. He went to coffee club this a.m. and has gone to lunch at the Senior Center today, then he is going to get his truck serviced and who knows what else he will find to do, but at least he can get out and about.
As for me, I moved the dust from one side of the roon to the other and ran the vacuum, cleaned the kitched floor, and have things pretty much back to normal. Now I can stitch or read or some of both.
Yesterday I put together some kits I want to stitch this new year. Here is a list what I have kitted up:
1. La-D-Da...Letters & Leaves
3. With Thy Needle & Thread...Love & Be Loved
4. The Sampler Girl...Primitive Valentine Cupboard Sampler
5. Plum Pudding Needleart...Blessed Be (I've stitched this a couple of times for gifts, so now I want to do one for myself).
6. Little House Needleworks...Season of Hope...March, April, May/June, July, August/September, October, November. I have December, January, February stitched up.
7. Heartstring Primitives...I will stitch you in my Heart (I've also stitched this one for a gift, so will do one for myself now).
I also have some charts ordered that haven't come in yet that I want to stitch this year.
My WIP are shown below:
This is the LHN ornament series for this year. This is the second ornament, Pear Tree. I already have the first ornament, Fa La La stitched. I'm thinking about making a quilted wall hanging with these ornaments.
This is the SAL of LHN, The Library. I don't well with SAL's as I get side-tracked with other items to stitch, so if I keep up that's okay, if I don't, that's okay also. This is a beautiful design and one I am really enjoying working on. Of course, I love all of Diane's designs and have almost all of them in my stash.
This next design is from iStitch, called Sew in Love. You can see other charts from this designer at www.istitchcharts.blogspot.com.
I have deleted this photo, because I made a terrible mistake by showing way to much of the designers chart. Like the designers, who work so hard to give us each of these beautiful designs, I DO NOT LIKE PEOPLE WHO CHEAT AND COPY THE DESIGNS. I feel if people can't purchase the charts, they don't need to stitch! That's my two cents worth. Carol, I do apologize if I caused any problems for you.
I hope each of you are having a GREAT day, and can put lots in stitches in your fabric today.
Until Next Time,
