A Finish and a Start

Good afternoon! We've been enjoying some beautiful weather the past few days. So far this winter has been mild. Except for a couple weeks in Jan. it's been very mild. My brother says we'll get creamed in March. I tell him to shut up and it's just going to be a mild winter, it owes us after the last two winters. We'll see who is right.

Anyway I finished this piece. Another quick and easy piece for Feb. It was a fun piece. I'm not sure what I'll do with it yet. It just caught my eye a while back. And since I'm on a kick to stitch from my stash and not buy any new patterns except for 2 (Winter and Summer Bell Pulls by Stoney Creek) in 2016. I am so far stitching from my stash. So far so good but it's still early in the year. We'll see when it comes to this summer, but that's when I may buy the bell pulls.

Here is the start to
"A Loving Heart" by Stoney Creek Collection. Now that I've stitched on it a couple of days it's going easier. At first I wasn't so sure I made a good decision there. But it's so pretty. I can't wait to get it further along.

Well....until next time.....Happy Stitching!

Lovely finish and it is nice to dig through and see what things you might have forgotten about. :) I know someone else who got those bell pulls too.

Nice spring-like finish and a great new start. The SC projects look quite fiddly, lots of colours and backstitch. But very pretty when they are done.
