I've thought about updating my blog for the past week or so, does that count?
Anyway, I have continued to stitch pretty often during the month of March. With a lot of dentist and dr. appts, one can accomplish considerable progress on stitching in waiting rooms. Small projects are great for that and I finished a couple last week: Britty Puppy from Brittercup Designs 'Keep it Clean', minus the words, bone, and heart AND a freebie sampler from Blue Ribbon Designs, I picked up this chart at the LNS, but I think you might be able to download it from her website. I didn't stitch the 'for you' over-one part nor add my initials, but might later...
The other sampler is by 4 My Boys titled 'Snow Proud Sampler' and is stitched on 28 ct. dirty cashel (what a crappy name for that color of linen, but then again, I guess fitting).
One other recent finish will have to wait to make an appearance here until I hear from my exchange partner that it has been received. Stay tuned for a spring house.....
April is looking to be an incredibly busy month for me, with birthdays, easter, house full of company 2 weekends in a row, among a zillion other 'things' going on. I sometimes work better under pressure though, so I might just really keep this blog updated even though it'll be hectic!
I bought my first flowers today, a hanging pot of red petunias-my favorite color and one of my favorite flowers. I wish I was more of a 'green thumb' but at this point in life I've decided I should probably wish to be able to pay a full time gardener instead. LOL I did notice my cannas are starting to come up, wahoo! Now, those are some beautiful flowers to grow because they are tall, grow fast and are pretty low maintenace. I need to thin out the bulbs today and plant some in front of the ugly gas meter out back so I don't have to look at it this summer. Oh, this reminds me, I want to find some more asparagus ferns to grow in pots this summer. They are beautiful and I have managed to keep mine alive every year I have them-awesome! I snagged a pic online to upload here of an asparagus fern.
I'm off to dig in the dirt.......Have a wonderful spring weekend!
