Lynn had my name. She stitched the kitty to look like my grey tabbie. Isn't it cute? I sure love it. It is from the 2002 JCS Christmas issue. I completely forgot to ask who the designer is. I have the issue some where, and can look it up. Lynn made some modifications to reflect my favorite color and Tobie's coat. Both of us have said many times that we wanted to stitch this design. She made good on it. Thank you Lynn. Of course, I love it!

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.

My first finish of 2013 is Plum Street Samplers, Maxim and Zoya. I put it away to work on ornaments and exchanges. There wasn't too much stitching that was left. I'm thinking I need to change the date in the right hand corner. I'll think on it a while but will definitely make a decision before I take it to be framed.
We have a chance of light snow flurries today. That means it's going to be cold and overcast. Love it, love it. Why, you ask? Great day to stay in and stitch!! That's exactly what I intend to do. Oh, and watch me some FOOTBALL too. Near as I can figure I have four games today. Oh, what's a girl to do? The season is rapidly coming to an end. Ah, but never fear, Downton Abby starts Sunday!!!
Have a great weekend.
