I was determined to post today, being the last day of February. I am sitting down here with a nice large cup of Dunkin Donuts coffee and enjoying the warmth of it. i am soooo sick of the cold. I know we have more winter still to come but it does seem like its been so very long. Non stop snow and ice and freeze your fingers off temperatures. Brrrrr!! We have had so many snow days I am sure we are going to lose some of our summer vacation because of it.
I have been stitching a bit and want to share what I have done this month.

Not the greatest picture but this design is just so cute.
I plan on having a basket full of little pillows with birds on them. I think this red bird which is by Blackbird Designs is just so sweet. I just ordered the new BBD book and I am so anxious to get it and see what goodies its filled with. Barb and Alma sure know how to put some wonderful designs together.
This past Valentine's Day I stitched this Little House design for my husband Ray for a gift. I am putting it inside a mirror that I bought from Sudberry Designs. It fits perfectly but I haven't finished stretching and pinning it yet. Yep I am framing it myself. Daring aren't I? LOL I need to pick up more pins this week so I can get it done. I will be sure and share a picture whenits all framed.

My husband liked it a lot and he was happy to see me stitching so much this month. I had lost my stitching MOJO for a little while there but its back and I am so glad.
I still am doing my crocheting, I made my girls all pretty little washcloths that I have to say are the nicest to wash with. They are called Spa cloths and they came out so nice. I added two little heart shape soaps. I need to take some individual pics of them but this was how I wrapped and gave to my children. Aren't they sweet and valentiny looking. :)

Here is the view from my sewing/craft table. Wanted you to see my very pretty snow filled trees outside of the window. We planted those trees when they were about 2 ft high, now they are huge and so very pretty, especially covered with snow.

Goodnight for now. Sending all my readers, hugs and many thanks for visiting my blog.

Love your BBD piece -- I love the idea of lots of pillows! What nice crocheted gifts for your kids too. And a sweet present for your DH. Aren't you just sick of the snow? We keep getting rain the past couple of times, but there's still lots of snow on the ground even so. I just want it all to go away. And no more snow please! :D

A basket full of little pillows with birds sounds very intriguing. And that little BBD bird is such a wonderful start to it.
