We had snow again on Friday. It seems so odd to see snow here. It didn’t last all day, but it was pretty for awhile. I’ve also had a migraine, so I apologize for not posting sooner. I was so excited to see everyone’s progress on Barnabee. I am almost embarrassed to show you how little I did on it. I stitched for about two hours on Thursday night, but this is all I can show for it. I feel like the slowest stitcher!
It is such a sweet piece though. Although I knew that it was going to be small, I never expected it to be quite this small. It is only 3 1/2 inches across. I love the little beeskep border. Too bad I didn’t finish it. Oh well, there is always next week! And since I wasn’t able to stitch on my HAED piece on Wednesday, I decided to pull it out and work on it last night. I didn’t get a whole 10 x 10 block done, but it is still progress. Eric says he’s going to retire before I finish this piece! And he’s only 32.
I am trying to figure out a better way to organize my thread for this piece. I feel like I spend half my time searching for the thread I need, because there are so many colors in this. So, at Jo-Ann’s today I purchased a plastic box with cardboard bobbins that I can use to store all the threads for this piece. Hopefully it will make it easier to find each color, because they will be in the box in order. I also bought my thread for Baby Garden today, so I should be able to start that on Monday. I got an email from Stitching Bits & Bobs that my thread for my sheep blankets is FINALLY on its way. I’m anxious to finish up my February blanket, because the sheep is naked again. Not too much else going on around here…I intend to stitch on Mystery 9 this weekend, and hopefully get some sewing in. First though, I’m going to get rid of my migraine (here’s hoping!). Everyone have a great weekend, and welcome to newcomers!

I am grateful for snowflakes.
