all day yesterday though, all I could think of was what a loss the stitching world has endured yesterday, with the tragic death of Lisa from The Primitive Needle . My thoughts and prayers go out to her family at this terribly sad time. I loved her designs, and have one stitched and framed, and hanging in my hallway.
On that note...hug your family...we just never know!!
Take care everyone

SO....what have I been doing lately? Well, my youngest two have just ended a two week February break from school. Normally we have "March Break" in this province, and will do so again next year, but The Canada Games took place in our capital city, and since our school district is part of the city area of schools.....they had two weeks off.....they gave up a few extra days at Christmas to do this. Mind you, it was nice to be off, but the weather was not the best, and we couldn't really do much...and I know come March Break time...when all the rest of the province is off, they will be wanting to be off too.......
So now it's off to make my morning coffee and say a prayer that we will actually get out today....we had rain yesterday and a flash freeze (apparently) and snow last night...oh joy, oh bliss........

First up, is my Lizzie Kate...I'm really liking how this is turning out, and will get back to it soon, but felt like I needed a break, so went stash diving in my large WIP pile and came up with something else to work on....
so.....I came up with Plum Street Samplers "Queen's Crowns", which I had started a few months ago. As you can see, I changed the name on the bottom from Gloriana to my last name. I came up with that idea because it was just so easy to do...and I'm liking the results! I can see this framed some day in a nice black frame...what do you all think??
The box that is in the above photo is a box my son made me at school and gave to me this week. I just love it!!! I'm thinking I will get him to put the year on the bottom...he may want to pass this down to his family some day! I have it sitting on my small curio cabinet in the hallway at the moment. My son is very talented....
Anyway, off to get ready to get the day started. We got hit with a blast of winter again yesterday, so everyone was home and inside.....not so today....
Have a good one everyone!!

After a wild snowy afternoon/evening....we awoke this am to the announcement that there IS school. So, I had two very unhappy teenagers.....youngest in particular who tried to get me to let her stay home anyway! LOL....That being said..this is a child that has perfect attendance!
Last night before it got too dark.....youngest and Nallie dog went out to play.....Nallie dog backed out of the playing before my daughter, and waited impatiently on the front porch for daughter to finish playing.....
I made a bit of progress on my stitching yesterday...I've moved on to February!!! I am really enjoying stitching these...can't wait to finish!!
Before I forget....Carolyn, over at "Just One More Stitch" is having a great giveaway....hop on over and sign up.
Well take care everyone...stay safe...

Back to the grind today...kids have gone back to school.....new year has begun......
I was making a mental note of what I want to finish stitching and what I want to stitch in 2011. This year I did not (as many of you on other blogs as well) start something new on January 1. I have so many beautiful charts in my stash that I want to stitch, and some of those I have as WIP's, so I will concentrate on those.....this is just day 1 of what I want to show you that I will be working on!!
First up...Mary Margaret by Carriage House Samplings....I picked this up again on the weekend...I really do love this design. In the heart on the tree I stitched the initials of my three children, rather than M M.....and I think it's a nice personal touch. I want to get this finished in 2011.
The Queen's Crowns, by Plum Street Samplers...I love this design too! I realized when I was stitching this that I could substitute my last name for Gloriana without too much trouble......so that's what I'm doing....again, I want to finish this design in 2011.
From the Deep, by Plum Street Samplers...I am almost done this design, and plan on hanging it in the master bath.......one of these days in 2011. So this is just a peek of what I have started, and what I want to finish in 2011!! Stay tuned for more in another post....
Have a great day...

I have New Year's resolutions...haven't made any for a few years, but decided this was the year to change a few things.....
