February Smalls ....

Hi everyone.  Yep....I am a few days late for posting my Smalls but I had a very busy Fri for posting day.  You can join our SAL by clicking on this link to Mary's Thread.  We post on the last Friday of every month, and I really did mean to this past Friday.  However I had some unexpected appointments to come up.

Here is one of the things I did manage to stitch up and get totally finished.  It is The Primitive Hare Valentine freebie!!!  I used 36ct Sassy's Fabric and a HDF Gandy Tangopremium silk to stitch it in.  I filled it with crushed walnut shells to give it a little bit of weight.

I also finished a small for a Valentine Exchange that Sassy Jack's Stitchery organized.  We were to take a Plum Street Sampler chart and take a portion of it to make in to a small.  It could be made into any kind of small such as a pincushion, needlebook, scissor fob, etc.  I used the chart Remember Me and took a small portion and made it into a small pincushion .... again filled with crushed walnut shells and chenille trim around it.  I thought it turned out really nice.

I am off to stitch the day away and take care of a very sick hubby.

February ORTs.....

Sharon of It's Daffycat had posted our TUSAL on Monday, Feb 4.  She is our host for our TUSAL and you can click on her blog name to find out more about this group.

Sadly, I was NOT feeling well on Monday so I did not do much of anything, let alone check email.  Shame on me.  But I now have it on my calender all the dates for my TUSAL posting dates so I won't forget them in  the future.

I was gone a lot traveling last year so I am hoping to get back into the habit of posting on my blog. 

Here is my ORTs for our TUSAL posting!!!

Now I am off to make some lunch and then settle in for some serious stitching today because we have 100% chance of rain scheduled to happen today.  Thank goodness I have already been this morning to have my labs drawn and back home before this downpour settled in!!
