The trip to NOLA was fun and wet. It rained on us most of the time. A little rain did not dampen our spirits though. Did a few of the NOLA things to do. Will post them at a later date.

We had quite a bit of weather in OK last night. Evidently I slept through it which is unusual because I don't sleep well. It must have rained pretty hard. The ditches beside my place are full of water, and I can see how high the water rose in the yard. One plus, it is cool this morn. I know lots of folks are ready for warm weather. I am not one of them. Cool weather is my preference.
Guess I'll get my day started. Marie, I'm sipping on a cup of Community Coffee!

Amy received her Hoe Exchange piece from me today. I chose to stitch primitivebettys "Tulip Time". I think this design is so cute. I used DMC threads and a 28ct cashel linen called Provence Lavender. I ruched some ribbon for the trim. First time I have ever done a larger piece with the ruched trim. I think it turned out great. Amy reported that she is recovering from surgery, so Get Well Soon!

It took me a little longer than it should have. Seems Oklahoma has been beset by allergy season plus I've had a head cold. Both have caused my eyes to water thus hampering my stitching!
I must get busy though. The frogs hit my latest St. Patrick's stitch, so I've got to rip it, rip it. Not much time left to finish it. Plus, I made so very little progress on my SAL with Julianne. Bzy, Bzy, what's a stitcher to do?
Have a great day. Tomorrow I will get some stitching in. I'll be in Tulsa getting my van serviced.

I received my Valentine from Julianne last week. She stitched a Prairie Schooler design for me. She bought the trim while she was in New York. It is so much fun to receive a stitched piece from a friend. Thank you J., I have it on my stitching shelf where I can see it.
We decided to do a SAL of the ornament "Night Before Christmas" by Birds of a Feather from the 1998 Ornament issue. I've robbed, exchanged and improvised for all the thread colors. I'm sure it will look great when I get it stitched. I've never stitched a BOF design for me, so this ornie will constitute two firsts. It's my first SAL too.
I'm a great lover of anything St. Patrick's related. I ordered iStitch Designs "Sew Irish". Pulled the threads for it last night also. Once I cut the fabric for it, I'll begin.
Saturday I put the finishing touches in "March" of LHN Months of the Year series. It has shamrocks in it, so loved stitching it.
Guess I had better get busy. Lots to do before I head off to work this afternoon.

Both designs are freebies. I am sorry to say I did not make a notation of who the designers are. ***edited*** Be My Valentine is a primitivebetty's design. On Julianne's I used Cupid thread and on mine I used Buckeye Scarlet. Both were stitched on opalescent white 32ct fabric.
Well, tomorrow nite is the Super Bowl. I don't have a favorite team in this contest, but I am drawn to that kid QB Kaepernick from San Francisco. May the best team win. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
