April 2017 Update

And another band of the sampler is done.





Life got a little crazy this past week or two and isn't settling down anytime soon it looks like.  Hopefully, next month I can catch a little break.  Meanwhile, I'll keep plugging away when I can.

Happy Stitching,

Tamara

And we have progress!

A page finish on Little Flutterby:

And the next pair started:



Now to go try to accomplish 25,000 million things today.  Sigh.

Happy Stitching,

February Update

I don't feel like I have accomplished all that much this past month.

Peacock Band Sampler, still working on Band 6.



And an up-close shot:


Those Jessica stitches are killing me.

Then there is Little Flutterby.



Most of my week has been spent on my socks that were started last fall sometime, pictured here with the yarn cake for the next pair up.



Last month I had a needle minder craving and got the ladybug pictured with Little Flutterby above and these two, all from Gina's Unique Boutique on Etsy.





March is a busy month at work and I can't seem to get a quiet weekend to sit and stitch lately.  Spring is springing, though, and that makes things seem a little brighter at times.

Happy Stitching,

Tamara

Peacock Band Sampler

Hello, 2017!

I'm moving right along on the Northern Expressions Peacock Band Sampler.  My Trick or Treat Sampler ended up getting kicked off my stand, lol.  I do plan to get back to it once the band sampler is done.



I'm well into band 6 now where it's Jessica Stitchpalooza.

The weatherman's calling for anywhere between 4-9 inches of snow here Saturday, so maybe I'll get a snow stitching day.  I'm not counting on it, though.  Usually, when we have a weather event, I'm too busy looking out the window or looking at people's pictures on the computer to get anything done.  And then it's an hour or two shoveling snow and cleaning off the car so I can get to work on Sunday.  Blech.  Can't you Northerners keep your snow up there, please?

Happy Stitching!
