I don't know where the time goes it just flies by around here.
Things have been a bit hectic and crazy. My husband was hospitalized with some heart problems. An old problem acting up again. He is on the mend and is home now thank God.
My 2 grandchildren have been sick too, the granddaughter with a sinus infection and my grandson with an ear infection, he has been home from school for winter recess. We have had loads of snow and I wish he could have been able to go and play in it but being sick he had to stay in. Well, maybe over the weekend. I would love to take them to the park sledding. We have a great park a couple miles away that has wonderful hills. I wouldn't mind going down one of them myself.
I am so excited. I ordered 2 of the new Carriage House Sampling girls, Elizabeth and Mary Margaret, also La D da's new Mockingbird. I also ordered the silk threads for Mockingbird from Vikki Clayton's, which I know I said it before but I just love those silks. I also ordered some NPI's for my Village piece from CHS. So I am going to be just sitting by the mailbox greedily rubbing my hands together waiting for my stash. WHOOHOOO
I really love all the stories/nursery rhyme type pieces by La D Da. Miss Mary Mack is coming out so nice and I am anxious to stitch some more of their designs. Bushel and a Peck, Merry Sunshine, and Polly Wolly Doodle. Would love to decorate a wall with them.
Here is Miss Mary:
I think she is very fetching. Don'tcha think?
Today I will be receiving my new page of the Mystery Sampler, page 13. I am all done with 1- 12 and I am so glad that I am right on time with this piece. Can't wait to get started on 13.
Here is my mystery sampler update:
In addition to all my plans I am in 2 spring swaps, from 2 separate email groups and I would love to show everyone what I am stitching but I know one of my partners takes a look at my blog now and then, and I want her to be surprised. So I have quite a lot of spring stitching in my future.
Thank you all so much for your lovely comments on my posts and pictures. I love hearing from all of you and reading everyone elses blogs. So many very talented creative friendly people.
