I loved doing this piece. I needed to take a break from In the Garden and the Horse piece. For some reason I just can't get into them, and need to take breaks. Oh well....as long as they are done by June 1, it'll be fine. This is finish #13 towards the 50 mark. Last year I had 21 done, then had to start over a couple of times since then. I guess you are suppose to have 50 done in a year, that will never happen. In fact I restarted last summer and at this rate it'll take a little over 2 years to hit 50. I'm doing good at not buying more patterns and using what I have. A strong desire to see my credit card shrink is great motivation not to buy any more patterns. I have enough material for now. In fact this piece was done on a scrap piece of material. I will have this made into a pillow and give it as a gift. I think it would be so pretty.
It is so nice out today. I opened my windows and letting the fresh air in. Dare I hope we have seen the last of the snow? Even if it is forecasted later this week but will not last as the high for that day will be upper 40's.
Ruth's funeral was large and beautiful. So many people were there. Plus something I had never seen done before and I'm not sure I could do it myself, they had a tape of songs she was singing. Ruth had recorded them for her funeral as a testimony of her faith.
Last Sunday was my niece's baby shower. It was small but fun. We don't have too many family members around here. Next Sunday his family is having one,so my mom and I are going to that one and then going to my sister's from there for a couple of days. It'll be nice just to get away.
Well, until next time Happy Stitching!
