Yep ----three titles for today's post!!!!

First one---
Don't tell Chookyblue--
but I have had this work in progress--
Blocks in progress from the "A Gardener's Journal" by Anni Downs--
way before she did the "club"--I was gonna "join" it to get me moving again on finishing it---but??????
but yesterday I found the bag with the ones I have finished and ones that are traced waiting there turn--and I got busy on them once again--
above shows the newest work--2 more totally done and a 3rd one half done!!
So Chooky---I am working on it and I promise----
AHHHH--lets not do the "promise" thingy"--but I will try to keep working on these--
I love these and really would love to finish them!!!

Look what I found----
As I was "digging" around looking for the ones I had finished in the Gardner's Journal--
you will never guess what I found--
Looky here!!!!
Remember when I just "redid" these two--
cause I could not find last years--
Well--friends--here they are--??????

One of my thread orders came in today--
again this is all "Chooky's" fault!!!!
Over on the SAL site for the Tis the Season--
some inspiring stitchers are doing their blocks in variegated threads of red and green--
well-Di can't let that happen with out her--so she went looking and finally found some and ordered a couple different ones--
The one on the left is a No for this project--
the spool in the middle is for hand quilting some pink and green quilts I have--
but that thread on the right is just "right" I do believe!!!!

 It's my turn--
Now I know that everyone--even me believe it or not ==
is tired of seeing these kinds of pictures--
but--darn it---I just had to take some to show you what was happening at my house today!!!
this is through the window--

then I opened the window for these "shots"--

it is piled high here--but hard to see that from up here on the 2nd floor!!!

Sooooo---Spring can come now--
seen enough white stuff for now!!!!

and one sweet kitty--Miss Gracie

    now hiding things from me and blaming me for buying threads all in one are in serious trouble punishment I promise to stay on your case about your Gardener's Journal so you better get some pics taken and do a post on the SAL blog and let us know how much you have done and what you need to do for your gardeners journal......ASAP......oh and we need to see

    I like the other bonus stitcheries you found too........
    Snow well I would not get sick of the pics as I NEVER see snow..........only seen it once or twice in my life.........but I can understand you're sick of it..........going to be well over 100F for the next few days.........bring on autumn I say........

  6. Such pretty stitching! Love the thread you chose too. Those pictures look TOO familiar! Ugh, I'm ready for Spring!!

  7. Stitching is gorgeous. Snow is icky!!!
