And another month bites the dust...where is the time going??
Before I forget I'll get the Gifted Gorgeousness post done (I nearly forgot about it last month!!) So...I have two pictures to show today...
The first is one a friend had given me to stitch. This is the February Garden Journal Series from Garden Samplings. I'm trying to finish each month, during the same month. So far I've been on point! Wish me luck!!
The second is a gift I'm giving to someone else. I was ecstatic to use only threads I had here at home, fabric someone had given me a while back, keeping up with my "stitch from stash" resolution, and hope to get it in a frame and off to my friend sometime soon. I finally found a frame last week, I just need to get it pinned and secured in the frame. It was for a friend's birthday and part of my Pay It Forward project I have going this year. This is a A Mon Ami Pierre pattern.
My other SAL I'm participating in is the Get It Done SAL 2015. I have two patterns I've been striving to finish this year. I've made progress on both, and am so excited to show them to you now. I'm actually half way done on my Bent Creek Red Thread piece!!
The other is Aurora Cabin and is a Dimensions kit. I have been working a bit on this but got sidetracked...I'll show you why in a minute.
I have been invited to a friend's house for Passover this year. I am a Christian, but my friend from college is Jewish, and she invited us to her Passover Seder this year. I am incredibly honored, and so excited to take part in her celebrations. I've always wanted to participate in a Seder, and am so thrilled she asked me. I asked what I could bring, and she said she would give it some thought, but in the meanwhile, I found this lovely Matzoh cover to stitch, and though she probably has one already, I thought she might appreciate the sentiment. I love this pattern, and am nearly halfway done now. I am not sure how this is actually used so if you know how I should finish this off, I would appreciate your input!!
I still have half a month left to go...I hope to finish the Matzoh cover, and hope there will still be time left over to finish two winter/Christmas themed projects to keep up with my goals for this year. Wish me luck!! I will be having surgery toward the end of the month so with all the appointments I am running out of time. Off to get some stitching done while we are "iced in" today! I'll leave you with a picture of a little visitor yesterday, who braved the sub zero wind chill to pay me a visit. Doesn't he look chilly???
