How did it get to be March?

It is amazing how as you get older the years go by faster and faster. I remember when I was in elementary school thinking that the year was sooooo long. Now there are times when it is not long enough. I guess that is what happens when you are busy every moment of the day. The end of February was also a blur as we were all very very sick. Nathaniel brought us home a great virus that has had us all down for the count.

Here is what I have been stitching on the last few weeks…Mirabilia’s Halloween fairy. I needed something to take with me on our trip to Allen’s family over presidents day and I kind of stuck with it. Here she is so far…she does have legs, but I didn’t feel like un rolling her.
She is so much fun. I am running out of the Black Coffee that came with the kit. I also heard that many stitchers ran out of the Dandilion Stem as well so I will have to pick that up when I go to my stitching group tomorrow night. Maybe my embellishment for the Nora Corbett “Holly” pattern will be in as well.

I also got my Neighborhood RR back recently. It is fabulous and I look forward to getting it framed. Thanks to Carol, Glenna, Karen, Deb, Marie, Carissa, Nicole, Sabine and Wendy for stitching on it. I thank 9 stitchers instead of the usual 8 as Carissa was unable to finish her block and Marie was kind enough to take what she had started and put the finishing touches on it. Thank you so much ladies for such a lovely memory of you all.

One more picture for you today. We got a ton of snow this morning so we took Nathaniel outside to play. He had a fabulous time. He even helped us shovel. One of our kind neighbors brought him a tiny little shovel. It was so cute.

I also have some goals to work on for March. I hope to:
1. Finish Haloween Fairy
2. Finish half of Part 5 of Bordeaux Mystery
3. Stitch on Mystery 9

Good luck to me.:)
