Time is marching on. I really don't know where February went. I was sick most of the month. I do feel better now but my voice is still not 100%. That's not the best thing when you talk on the phone for a living!
The "main event" in February was Mom's birthday celebration. We managed to surprise her, not an easy feat to pull off. Anna made her a beautiful cake. We missed Steve, but our hearts were with him and his family. Joy and I had a great time traveling together. Big thanks to Tim and his family for all they did to make the weekend a success!
I've been rummaging around in my stitching basket, trying to figure out what I've accomplished, if anything. I have pictures to share. Warning - not a thing has been ironed...
On the 18th I mentioned that I wanted to get a little more done on the Olde Willow project. Mission accomplished!
I finished the first Petite Exemplary by E&E&F. I am stitching all four designs together, so while it does count as a finish (by my twisted reckoning) the project itself is not finished.
Things are busy at work and that means more stitching time. I finished the sugarplum at the heel of the stocking.
My current project is from CJC Day 1, Lizzie Kate "Don't Get Your Tinsel in a Tangle." Not much progress yet but it is nice to see a few more colors emerge.
The guild UFO challenge ends in May. I need to finish a quilt I started in the 80's. I have some hand quilting left to do and the binding. I keep looking at it, but looking never leads to quilting. Funny how that works. One more project that needs knuckles.
Many thanks to everyone still checking in here at Toadlilyville. I am kind of afraid to open my blog reader, it has been so long. I really want to come see what you are stitching...and maybe take a peek at market purchases.
Lastly I want to say my thoughts are with Lisa Roswell's family. May you find the peace that passes understanding.
