And yes I am shouting! This piece almost caused me to give up stitching altogether. It was a bear to stitch. But I stuck to it. So much frogging, so much improvising.....and all those quarter and half stitches! Fortunately the other 3 seasonal crosses don't have any quarter or half stitching and only one has back stitching so they look much easier to do. And I probably will do them.

After struggling through this piece I got out a Stoney Creek piece from book "On Butterfly Wings" It has a cute rabbit in a mailbox surrounded by flowers and the rabbit is looking at two butterflies. This one seems to be much easier!

They say it's spring but you can't convince us of that. We've had snow and will get more snow although our snow hasn't stuck it's just irritating we want spring. They say the end of next week it'll warm up. Hope that is true.

Man! My vertigo is really acting up again. I'm doing a little better, as long as I just sit or lay, and don't try to walk I'm okay. And if I stay off the computer, something about the computer makes it worse so I don't get on it much right now. And I love to play Word Chaos and Jigsaw Puzzle on Facebook. I can spend hours doing that.

My sister is coming to town this weekend, maybe. She's mandated to stay over to work if someone from 1st shift calls in. She's not too worried, as if you call in a weekend, you have to make it up the next weekend. So people don't usually call in unless they are really sick.

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