February Update

Nada, zip, zero--no progress.  I have not picked up the needle and thread on my bap (His Eye is on the Sparrow).  I had several other things I worked on.  first our Kansas Stitcher group had a challenge to stitch something for Kansas Day --which was Jan. 29th.  I stitched a sunflower biscornu. Then I stitched for me! Started on my birthday (2nd)--something that has been in my to do pile for 5 or 6 years.  Fell in love with these little birdies and darn it --they have been calling for a long time.  So I heeded the siren song and got with it.  Valerie Pfeiffer Trios. I plan on taking it to the framers this week.  I also started a Black Bird Design--Christmas Garden.  I belong to a group on Facebook that loans out of print BBD patterns.I put my name on the list for this one and low and behold it was my turn!  Because it is a lone I am devoting all my stitching time to it.  I want to be able to pass in on quickly.  I pulled threads from my stash of Victorian Motto Sampler.  Working on 40 ct Picture This Plus "Doubloon".

We had a nice tease for spring--upper 70's on Saturday (20th). Was wonderful to spend time outside without winter clothes and gale force winds.  Just soo pleasant.  Back to 40's but that is OK cause spring isn't that far away! Daffodils are poking thru!

That is what I have been up to--lots of stitching!  Keep stitching!  Dede
