My Time Stitching

Hello blogging friends! I’m back for my 6th day in a row with another quick post. I didn’t know if I could do it, but I did. It is the 6th and final day of my blogaversary celebration. My last giveaway will be at the bottom of this post. remember to use the special code word in your comment for today and the previous 5 posts. I will draw for all of the prizes on March 31, 2023 and post the results here on my blog. I truly don’t know where the last 11 years went, but I have had fun with this blog. I have enjoyed posting and sharing what I have been up to and reading your comments and getting to know you through your blogs, too. I have really enjoyed my blog and hopefully you have, too. So what have I been up to since yesterday?

Still stitching on Spring Basket. Sorry about the wrinkles, but I don’t really feel like ironing it just to get it all wrinkled again when I work on it later. It is a more involved stitch than I first thought, but I really am enjoying it. I thought about leaving the border off, but I think it really adds to the design. I just have to finish the border and decide how I want to finish it. The next time that I post, it will be a FFO (Fully Finished Object)

Now for my last giveaway. Another cross stitch pattern. Another favorite designer, Country Cottage Needleworks.

I have many of this designer’s patterns in my stash and I loved this one so much I purchased it twice, LOL. So now I am giving you a chance to win this one. Put code word Christmas in your comment if you would like a chance to win it.

I won’t post again until March 31 when I have picked all of the winners. Again I want to thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and leaving comments. I try to read and respond to each and every one. I have enjoyed sharing what I am up to with you the last 11 years and I look forward to many more. Thank you ❤

Happy Stitching!

So Much Snow, Inside and Out

Hello blogging friends! How is your January going? Mine has not gone well, but that is a story for another day. And the last few days we have been getting snow. So much snow outside.

Snow Day

This photo was taken this morning. It has been snowing all day. There is also so much snow inside, with my Winter Snowfall project.

I have finished all of the pink on this project, so all that is left is all that white snow. I have been trying to push through to get this done, but I am so bored with the white. So since it is my Birthday today, I decided I needed a new Birthday start!

February Sampler of the Month

So I started the February Sampler of the Month by Country Cottage Needleworks. I have so many CCN patterns that I want to do. I wanted to do this series last year, but didn’t get to it. I am skipping January for now since it is almost over. I will be mounting all of the months myself in order to pop them in and out of 2 different frames I purchased for them. We shall see how that goes. But this project will be a nice break from all that snow 😉 I am stitching on 16ct Aida Beautiful Beige from Wichelt. So for the rest of the day I am going to enjoy my birthday by stitching on a new project and eating cake.

What new project are you itching to get started on?
