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!

  1. Gorgeous finish. I love Orca whales so this piece is beautiful indeed. Good job on picking the month for you stitching. That's really important to do sometimes.

    1. Thanks Meari. It's kind of exhilirating, which is weird b/c I ususally just stich for everybody else. I just have to limit myself to months that start with "M". That way I don't get selfish [or more selfish]!
