Hello my blogging friends. Happy March! Can you believe February passed us by so quickly? Spring has to be just around the corner for my neck of the woods, though we had a bit of Spring last week with one day reaching 70 degrees! In February! Usually a month when we are covered in snow that doesn’t start to melt until that first week of nice spring weather. So what have I been up to?
I have been slowly stitching on Ella. But that gap at the bottom of the dress is getting close to finishing! So excited about that. Then I can move my scrolls up. I was working on Ella while waiting for my Sullivan thread order to come into my LNS. Thanks to a wonderful stitching friend, I will be able to continue on my Mystery Sampler possibly tonight 🙂
Yep, a wonderful stitcher in the Mystery Sampler SAL group offered to send me 3 skeins of London Fog so that I can continue stitching. I am hoping to pick it up tonight, if not tonight, then on Sunday. Thank you so much, Heather. You are a sweetie!
And did you happen to notice the cute scroll covers on my scroll frame? Yep, I had to buy a new bag and covers to fit this project. Let me show you a better picture.
My new Deanna bag and grime guards. They have little birds and Eiffel Towers on them. And the lining is a beautiful pink! Love them!! If you are interested in Frame covers or bags for your scrolls or Q-snaps, check her out at Deanna’s Frame Covers and Storage. She is awesome.
I have also re-started my Temperature blanket and it is going much better. I switched to all half double crochet, since that is easier for me to keep track of the stitches. Though I have already lost 4 stitches somewhere. Probably in the ends, but I am not going to worry about it. Carole gave me a tip: put a marker in my last stitch, so I know where to put my hook when I turn. It has helped tremendously. Thank you, Carole. I am on row 25 so far. I am not too fond of the colors, but it is winter. I can’t wait to get to some happy colors.
Just look at all those yummy colors I will be getting to someday 🙂 All Stylecraft DK yarn. Love working with this yarn. So soft and doesn’t split when I crochet or knit. I still have a lot of catching up to do. Row 25 means that is the 25th of January. I should see some nice color changes when I get through February. As I said in the beginning of my post, we have had some nice, spring like temps.
And lastly, let me show you some pretty fabrics I received last week:
Sorry about the sideways photo. But they are beautiful any way you look at them. All are from Fantasy Dyed Fabrics. So pretty! I had plans to use the one on the right for Mirabilia’s Snow Queen, but it is a bit too small. I didn’t have anything in mind for any of them when I bought them. I am sure I will find something wonderful to put on all of them some day. If you would like to see more of Fantasy Dyed Fabrics, check out her facebook page and Etsy shop. She posts new fabrics at least once a week, but I will warn you, they sell out almost immediately.
At the end of this month, my little old blog will be 5 years old! I can’t believe I have kept up with it for 5 years! Not as much as I would like, but as much as I can. And it has been so much fun and I have met so many wonderful people. So watch out for my next post. I will be posting a give-away to celebrate my 5 wonderful years 🙂
Well, that is about all I have to share today. I am also getting ready for a scrapbook fundraiser that I give a make n take class at, twice a year. As you can see, I have just a little going on, and can you believe that I want to add a few more projects to my ever growing list? But not until at least next week 😉 So how many projects are you juggling these days and are they all the same hobby or all different hobbies? I’d love to hear all about them.
