LEAP Day & A FINISH!

FINALLY!  I had such high hopes of showing this finish 2 weeks ago, but alas my blog title still holds true. 
It is centered, on the square I just got in close to take the pic.  Hope you all have a Happy LEAP DAY. 

I'm going to do something a little out of character for me.  I've decided that since March begins with the letter "M" it must mean I should stitch for ME all month.  I'm gonna treat myself and only stitch things I'm keeping.  No gifts, charity, swaps--just me.  I'm kinda excited 'bout giving it a try.  I have some UFO's that need my desperate attention and I have a Lizzy Kate purchased in October that I'm finally going to start!  I'll do my best to show my progess more consistently here.  Happy Stitching my friends.  May God Bless you all!

Winter has arrived!

Yup, winter finally arrived in SC.  The wind blew all day yesterday and Praise the Lord there's no moisture in the air, or we'd probably have SNOW.  YUK! 
I've been stitching some, mostly just enjoying my family.  Gonna try to get a little stitching in this evening on my latest Love Quilt square.  This square is for a little boy named is Thomas.  The official deadline is March 1, but my personal goal is Feb 16.  I don't have long, so gotta get finished. 
In the meantime wanted to catch up with all my followers and show off my February House...
March should prove to be interesting as my designer friend has hinted that it's green {makes sense--St. Patricks Day}. 
Hope to post again soon with another finish.  Until then, Happy Stitching!
