Marching By....

Yes, March is moving along quite nicely - already the 20th! And, I'm sad to say I'm a bit sore from shoveling 7 inches of snow out of the driveway just yesterday. But, I have faith, spring begins today and the snow is going to be finished for the year. At least one can hope.

And, as March continues "March-ing" by my stitching progress continues as well. I'm happy to say I did manage to recover from my early month slump and have made some progress on my projects for the month. No finishes yet, but I know I'm getting very close on several items. I think I'll build the suspense and not post the progress pictures on the nearly finished items just yet.

Also, I've been on a bit of a stash building craze. Just insane I know because I already have more projects sitting in the not-started pile than I could ever possibly finish, but I see some of the new patterns coming out and just have to have them. I also made a trip to my local needlework shop just to grab a skein of floss and couldn't pass up a few great little projects from CCN. I'm regretting not taking a picture of my newly acquired stash to share with you, but you'll have to take my word for it - it was so much fun! The shop also had all new samples from local stitchers on the walls which was so nice to see. I just love seeing other folks framed work up close and personal - so much fun!

That's all for today, but I'll be back soon with some finishes to share!

  5. Hi there!
    I felt I had to comment. Just started following your blog this morning, and boy can I ever relate to your stash building CRAZE you mention in this post!! I think some part of my brain thinks I'm secretly a millionaire or something, because I'm constantly scouring the web and finding (and BUYING) more new projects!! It's insane! I have well more than enough than I can ever possibly finish in this lifetime. Ahhh...well, it's fun to dream about one day finishing them all, isn't it? And so much fun to bring home new goodies!! Or in my case, attack the mailman before he can get the package into my mailbox! Ha ha ha.
