First Week of March

O my goodness it's March 7 already! I have been successful in keeping it a Mostly Monogamous March.   I made decent progress on my Mira project.  Here's my day one start, which was actually March 3.


And here's where I ended last night which was Day 3 of my stitching time. 

I know, I know-- I didn't start in the middle, the shame!  ha ha  I have a tendency to start at the top if I can because that's the direction I like to stitch.  
Wanted to share a little bit of recently added stash.  Stoney Creek had a Superbowl Sunday Sale. Managed to eek out a few things that day.  
The butterfly Love was their February Free chart. I didn't get the rest of the series, but it was free so I figured what the hay!  

Needed a few DMC for my Mira project so went to Hobby Lobby on Saturday to get those.  While I was there found a chart on clearance.  Picked it up for $7.  I didn't realize they've gone up on their DMC again!  It's now .49 each--YIKES!  I'm gonna show my age here but I remember paying .10 each.  Definately gonna have to keep an eye out for DMC sales in the future.  
I have no plans to stitch any of these designs anytime soon, but I just had to have them.  I have not decided if I will work on my Frosted Pumpkin March "block" this week or not. I'm  enjoying working on my Mira, "Autumn in my Garden" so much. Unless I just get frustrated with it, I may just wait until next week for the Pumpkin SAL.  If you'd like to follow me on Instagram @farmboyslove you can see daily updates.  Otherwise I'll see you back here next week.
 Until then, Happy Stitching =) Pam
