Hi Peeps!

 Just wanted to show ya a little peek at what I've been working on lately.........it was really fun to work on, but I didn't have a big enough background piece that fit, so I had to order a larger piece of wool to finish it.  I will show the whole piece complete when I get it totally put together... (sorry the lighting wasn't as good in the second pic).  Can you say SPRING???!!
 We also celebrated our future daughter-in-law's b'day over the wkend w/a bakery cake.  Her favorite color is purple, can you tell??   I thought the flowers were so pretty!  (needless to say, it disappeared FAST)!!

 
Well, we have certainly gotten enough rain the past two days to build an ark.  I certainly hope spring is around the corner!!  It was warm and sunny a few days ago, then SNOW showers the next day.  March has always been crazy weather for us here in Eastern Ky.
 
 
 
Here's BJ in the craft room, keeping mommy company.  He likes to curl up on a tie-dyed bean bag and sleep in front of the fireplace, but he got up and moved just when I was going to snap his pic in it!  Doggone it!! :))
Happy stitching!!

Not Much Going On

Well, I wish I could say that my hubby bought me this gorgeous red Corvette for our 26th anniversary on Valentine's Day, BUT nope, he did not! LOL  (I actually took this shot when I worked a temp job at a local car dealership)!  Thought this might grab your attention, tee hee!!
 I wanted to show you all TWO of the projects I made during the month of Feb. but completely forgot to take pics of them, duh, so hopefully next time!  In the meantime I've been gearing up for spring instead, (which reminds me, I need to put my SNOWMEN away)!!  This month has not been super productive for me as far as stitching goes, but I have been trying to get some UFO's finished.  Just not a lot of time for stitching w/four young adults living w/us.  (that's another story)!
 However, I have spent the last couple of days listing lots and lots of new items in the ol' Etsy shop. I just placed 2 more orders for lots of new goodies that should arrive sometime next wk.
I already listed some new cross stitch patterns and fabric........
 as well as several wool applique patterns and a few kits..........
 Don't forget my SALE is still going on till this Sun. nite~March. 3rd midnight Eastern time. 
Happy first day of March and I hope it looks like SPRING soon!
