A new start

Good afternoon! How is everyone doing with all the storms? We got hit yesterday but nothing compared to the east coast. Stay safe and warm everyone out east. I hope you are all doing okay.

My sister came to town on Sat. planned to stay until Monday but when she heard the storms were coming in and it would be bad in the Lansing area, she left late Sunday afternoon. We got a lot accomplished in the day she was here and she's planning to come back maybe the weekend of the 26th. We're having a spaghetti dinner at church that Sunday wonder if I can convince her and Tim (our brother) to stay for it. Kay won't be hard to convince but Tim? He doesn't like to eat with other people so I don't know.

I decided I wanted to get something nice and spring like to stitch. Like most people I am sick of winter even though it's been a mild one for us. This is a difficult piece though as the butterflies are so intricate and the pattern is not an easy one to follow at all. But I have my trusty magnifying glass handy and that does help a lot. I need encouragement on this piece though. It is going slow but I'm in no hurry, if a just stitch a little each day. Just takes me 4 or 5 hours to get a few stitches in sometimes. Sort of like my America piece only much smaller and the America pattern is much easier to read. Speaking of the America piece, I mislaid it! I'll find it somewhere. I put it in a safe place and it's so safe I don't know where it is! LOL!

I can't believe we are already to the middle of March. I can't wait until March is over and spring is here. I ordered some flowers for Easter Sunday at church and I am anxious to plant them in my garden. (Every year they ask us to buy Easter Lillies, or Tulips, or this year is another flower which I ordered and I forgot the name of it). Oh well.....

Well....until next time Happy Stitching!
