Fancy a Jane Day ?
The Sampler Girl

The LHN's are sold as kits with CC floss. Mary Kathryn of Handrafts put together a kit for Janes Day. She has a very keen eye for selecting fabric and floss for projects and I have always been very pleased with her choices.

Happy Spring !

Finally, spring has sprung. It's not raining as much and it seems the days are a bit warmer and of course longer. Took Tiger to Trout Lake yesterday and could not believe how excited she was. Our visits over the winter months have been sporadic. I really need to get into a better routine where we go more often, as we both could use the walk to get rid of some "winter flab".

I leave you today with 2 more stitches from last year that I'm pretty sure I didn't blog about.

Not sure where these bunnies came from, I'm guessing a freebie.


A while ago I told you how I had gotten back into reading. As I was browsing around looking at book sites I came across this one that peeked my interest
Body Movers by Stephanie Bond . I read the first one and thought it's okay, but since I had purchased the first 3 as a bundle, I read on and couldn't stop till I reached book 6. Books 7 and 8 are on hold, as there are talks of making a TV series. I can't wait to find out what happens, so I'm hoping it will be soon, very soon. As for making it into a TV series, it could work with the right actors.

I stitched this bunny maybe 2 years ago, but don't think I posted about it. At the moment I can't remember whose design it is, am pretty sure it was a freebie. If I come across the pattern, I'll let you know.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Jour de Chance designed by
28ct. white evenweave
If I remember correctly this pattern was from last year and meant to be a biscornu. The Rosace Floss I found out about on another blog, sorry I don't remember whose. You can send away for 3 skeins and there is no cost, not even postage. Thanks to family I have a few different colors to try out. It won't replace my DMC, but for stitching small fobs and pillows they will do fine.

I havn't posted since the end of January, yikes that is a long time. No specific reason or problems, time just got away from me. We ended February with snow and so far March has been stormy, rain, thunder and lightining. And more rain !

I do have stitching to show for my time away and will bring you up to date soon.
