I have been working on several projects lately but nothing is completed. I'm working on my Block of the Month April quilt blocks and only have a week or so to get them finished before the May videos are up. I'm also trying to get back to my collaging. This past week I saw that Amy Powers was going to do a Happy Go Lucky Stitchalong in June. I really want to do it!!  It is on sale right now for only $10.00 on the Big Picture Classes website. I haven't picked up my embroidery for a long time so my deal with myself is that I can take this class as long as I finish the other stitching projects I started. Well, I have to finish two projects. I'm not counting the long ago abandoned projects like this one my mom found that I started when I was a little girl.
I think it's funny that I signed it when I hadn't done much work on it.

I finished this tulip today but still have a long way to go on my Stitch Sampler from Rebecca Ringquist. She has several pretty samplers you can buy. I want to finish this in the next week or two then I'll only have one embroidery project to do so I can do the stitchalong.
Sometimes you just have to discipline yourself if you want you to get anything done. Ha!
I'm having a hard time getting bright pictures today. The sun here in Pittsburgh needs to eat a Jimmy Dean sandwich. It's supposed to snow tonight.  What??????!!!!!!!

Have a creative week and join me in the stitchalong. It will be fun!!!


  1. Are you staying warm? Can't believe the snow that came your way!

  2. Oh Susan how fun that your mother have saved your embroidery, your sampler looks so beautiful.
