New Start!

I just had to share my new start.

I tend to like stitching things appropriate to the season.

I looked through several charts last night before I decided on this. But I have done the winter band sampler and the autumn one. So, I need to stitch this one and the summer one to round out the group.

I can't believe how long it's been since my last post! This has been such a long winter here in the midwest. We are finally starting to see some warmer days. After a cold day tomorrow we are supposed to see 50 degree temps for the next week or so!

We have been busy here working on wedding planning! It is less than a month away!
Keep your fingers crossed for good weather on April 19! The wedding will be a small affair, outside, at the Roseman covered bridge in Winterset, Iowa. The location was chosen by them as a place with special memories for them.

I did get two pieces stitched for them, I still have to have the framing done.


Sorry for the sideways picture. I am having some issues with this program tonight!!

This past weekend was a bachelorette party for the bride. The girls invited me as well. I joined them for dinner, but then headed home while they continued on with their evening.

Our son's fiancée has a birthday coming up next month as well, so I wanted to stitch something for her as well. She has a thing for owls, so I thought this piece would fit the bill.

I am planning on finding some cute fabric and sewing it up as a cute little pillow. The design is from Cricket.

I have been doing quite a bit of reading too. Probably more reading than stitching.

I think we have most of the details for the wedding under control. There are challenges in planning a wedding at a destination 4 or so hours away from home.

I have kept up reading your blogs and have enjoyed reading about news in your lives and seeing beautiful projects in progress or completed!

I spent about 4-6 weeks with sciatic nerve pain in my left leg. So I did have to take a few days off work to get thru the worst of it. Luckily it is much better now, and I am returning to normal. Not all the way back but loads better than a month ago!

I will try not to wait so long for the next post. I'm not sure what I will be picking up next to work on.

Happy Stitching!
