Happy March!!

How's March treating everyone?  I know most you have had just a miserable winter.  We usually don't get a lot of snow except in the mountains, but this year has been horrible ... no snow!!!  The mountains look so weird all bare except for the very tops ... the ski resorts are struggling big time and I'm wondering what our summer will be like with no snow runoff for the reservoirs .... could be a hot dry summer, which won't be much fun.  We've had one of the warms February's on record ... I'm afraid the weather is changing, and not for the good ... anywhere!

I had a fun couple of weeks with stitching.  I was going through all my project bags and found 3 designs that were in varies stages of being done ... so I decided to finish them up ... what a great feeling that is!!!

I started this freebie design last year ... not sure why I didn't finish it back then, but I'm glad I found it and got it done ...

Now this design I know is at least 2 years old and I remember getting to a certain point in the stitching and didn't want to do the vines ... when I pulled it out all I needed to stitch was the basket, the vines and the leaves/flowers ... a few hours later it was done!  Can't wait to get it framed!

In between all the Easter stitching I threw in a St. Patrick's Day stitch ... this one was quick and soooo cute to stitch!

Thanks for all your lovely comments and well wishes for my father-in-law.  Yesterday he turned 93!!!  Monica and I didn't go visit him because we've been fighting colds ... I've been done with one horrible sinus infection, my first one ever!  and hopefully my last ... omgosh it's been ugly!  But Terry, Chris and Robert went to visit him ... took him some cards, a balloon and a cupcake to celebrate 93 years.  He had a nice visit with everyone.  Hoping he gets to come home in a couple more weeks.

I hope you all stay safe and warm out there in the snow covered states ... and wherever you are, I hope the frogs stay away and you keep stitching and sharing.

I hope you find your Joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for finishes...

Kudos to you on going back and finishing these pieces! It always feel good to get a WIP/UFO finished. The Delivering Yummy Goodness finish is sooo cute!

Very pretty stitching. We miss the snow too. The Olympics look almost like they do in the summer!

Barbi said...

Oh what great Easter finishes! I have to see what I can dig up to stitch for Easter this year. You've inspired me.

All super cute!! And you get extra points for being on season with your projects - something I NEVER manage to do. lol

All are beautiful finishes. Love your March basket display.

Really cute finishes there! So colorful and cheerful--what most of us need, to take our minds off the cold, cold weather! You have a lot of great March finishes! I must get busy! Hugs!

Lovely finishes! I'm embarrassed by how many things I could probably finish by putting in just a few hours. So I won't even look for them. LOL

Hey! Great stitching going on over there. I'm still plugging away on HS His Eye on the Sparrow. When I complete this page, think I'll do something small to have a finish. Been missing you on FB? You taking a break from that like I have from Blog visiting? We've had a few warm days this week. Yeah!!

What fun, bright, cheerful finishes. Love the Easter theme, and the little St. Pat's one. Wish we could have sent you some of our snow, but at least it is starting to melt a bit now. Hopefully your summer won't be go long and dry, the weather seems to be odd all over this year.
