February is behind us and we're well into March, and the birthday season. Sunday, March 2, was my DSIL's 26th birthday, which we celebrated with a soup and salad lunch at his and my lovely DD's home. It was also my sweet niece's 18th (!) birthday on the same day. Today is my sister's birthday which I celebrated by giving her a call on the phone - and she was actually home when I called! Really between now and June 1, it's a swirl of birthday craziness.
My life lately has been in the late winter doldrums, still. Some nice things have been going on, but I've just felt a little blah about it all. So I was really happy that I didn't share all my little stitching pics that I took last week, as no stitching has been happening here since then. Oh, I've meant to pick up a project, then thought I'd rather veg. So there you have it. I thought you should know that about me, as the Pioneer Woman says. :D
I did finish half of this freebie, then started the other half, but it's not going well. Think I may just start it all over, it's small and of no consequence. But this side came out rather well, using leftover floss from the Acorns and Thread project I finished a couple of months ago.
In my last blog post I believe I mentioned my bulletin board that displays some of my finished projects. This is its current state.
I've been thinking of buying a huge piece of foam board at Home Depot, or some such place, and filling most of the wall space at the bottom of the stairs (where this board is) to display more finished pieces as they become available. There are also some cards from stitching friends on the board, and the pattern of course - to inspire/remind me to get busy and create some clothes for Kirsten's American Girl doll (yeah right). Anyway, I really enjoy my board and the bigger it is, the more I have to enjoy! :)
In the meantime, I think I'm going to curl up and hide in Connie's suitcase. She's leaving for Hawaii real soon and spending time on the beach in the sun sounds like just the thing for curing the doldrums!
