Weekly Update

Welcome Spring, the weather here has been rainy and cloudy all week. Yesterday the sun came out and it was  a beautiful day. Our busy time at work is here. I work for a CPA and do tax returns.
In the evening, stitching is my way to relax. I finished an ornament for my partner in the Christmas Ornament quarterly exchange that I take part in. I will post a picture next week after my partner, Mary G, receives it. Also, stitched a lot of the Witches Stitch too!! that will be a birthday gift for my niece in April. She loves Halloween. Also, starting stitching on a yellow rose which will also be a gift the end of April. I did get a little stitching on a few of my WIPs also.

Weekly Update

Good morning all from rainy and cold SE Texas. I work for a CPA doing tax preparing and accounting, so of course this is my busy time of the year. I come home in the evenings and unwind by stitching. I now have 17 items in my rotations, the newest,"Witches Stitch Too!!!"-Homespun Elegance  will be a birthday gift for my niece in April. She loves Halloween, so I thought this would be neat for her to add to her Halloween collection. I won the chart "Witches Stitch Too!!!"-Homespun Elegance and also, Pumpkin Gingham-Twisted Threads from Riona at Oubliette (her blog).

This has been a good week of receiving great items in the mail. Next, I won a give a way from Toni at Easy Street Ramblings. She was part of the 2015 Grow Your Blog Party.
I am also in the Christmas Crafter's Ornament Exchange. This week I received my ornament from Mary G for the Feb-April 2015 exchange. (I am still stitching hers)
I did some stitching on WIPs in my rotation:
1.     “Blessed” Ornament -2012 Ornament Series-Littlehouse Needleworks
1.     Garden Of Joy-Friendly Stitchers Sal 2009 -completed 47 Squares Of 52
I have stitched a squirrel to add to my garden
