February blog post

Hello all, hope you have had a great month with lots of stitching time. I have found time for a little stitching this month. My first goal was to finish What is a Fireman! by Art Venue for my daughter's friend's birthday. The birthday was Feb 9th and yea I did get it finished and framed in time for his birthday.

I was able to put a few stitches in several of my WIPs as well
     “March Winds 2015  Doodle – Blueladie Designs
 July ”Larkspur ”  Flower Of The Month series– Ellen Maurer Stroh
     November Weather Poems-Sue Cook-Britian’s #1 Crossstitch Magazine-2000 issues
 Christmas Animals – Heaven And Earth

N Needle - Stitcher’s  Alphabet – Brookes Books 

August Baseball Snowman- Snowman Series–Vermillion-
KYKS Forum hosted by Cathryn and Iris has a Bingo game each month. I won it January. The winner of the last game calls the new game and sends the prize. I received all the goodies in the picture. Wow.

I had a nice Valentine Day. My daughter and granddaughter treated me with a container of chocolate covered strawberries and my granddaughter gave a bouquet of yellow roses.
 My niece Sarah, has asked me stitch her initial "S" for her. I found a nice one in Jim Shore, Mill Hill Monograms book. I have changed the colors to shades of brown that she asked for. This is my next goal to finish, soon I hope.
I enjoyed my sorority's(Beta Sigma Phi) Valentine Ball the Crown Plaza, Houston, TX
on Saturday, Feb. 18th.
Several of us stay the night after the dinner and dance at the hotel and have breakfast together.
My camera was acting up so my pictures were not very good. I will be getting others later, but here are a couple. That is me standing in the Purple.

Have a great week and enjoy life.

Great finish on 'What is a fireman?' Good progress on your other projects. I am taken with the design of your 'S' project and I must now see what some of the other letters look like as I think these would make nice gifts.
