Can you believe we are about 20 days away from Spring?! Where did the time go? Today may have been the proof that March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb. We made it home from church just in time for the rain to fall and the wind to howl. It was stormy all day, but a great day for stitching and drinking a cup of tea. I wore my sweatpants again and watched the race with stitching in hand. It was a real treat.
I am proud that I made a bit of progress today. I still have not located my error yet, but admittedly I did not look too hard. It is over on the right side somewhere in between the roses and her green sleeve. So I am stitching where I know it is correct. (I checked.) It is nice to work on the skirt for a while. I am hoping to commit at least and hour a day to work on her. I am really excited about being able to stitch the fruit border. I think it will really pop against the black background fabric. MLI really has true talent with her selection of colors. Everything just comes together so nicely in her pieces.
A couple of months ago, DH and I found those Altoids that are peppermint covered with chocolate. They are quite tasty. I think we have bought one a month, so I now have two of the tins. I have always wanted to stitch the tins since I have seen some really beautiful ones on the web. Now that I finally have the tins after all of these years, I can not seem to find a design I like. Isn't that always the way? I am sure that in time I will find something outstanding. I still have to work on my Whitman's tins, but only recently found affordable 40 count fabric. The fabric that it calls for is cost prohibitive for me, so I will dye my own. I also plan on using DMC rather than the more expensive threads. I think they will be absolutely beautiful. I hope to start them right after I finish the Lady.
Wishing everyone a happy week!
