Finish #3 and Starts 32 and 33

Hi Blogger Friends.  Another finish and its still only February.  Go me!!   Well, here goes another long winded post.  Hope you stay with me.

Finish #3 - This is a SAL with DebbieLesleyanne  and  Anglea.
 Treats - (Boo Club) - Lizzie Kate

Finished 2-21-13

Start 32 - Black Cat - (Boo Club) - Lizzie Kate

Start 33 - Noel - (Jingles) - Lizzie Kate - This is for the monthly ornament SAL.  What a fun little stitch.  I think I will leave the candy border off the top and bottom.   Yipppeee!!  I will have another finish this month.

Halloween House - Ursula Michael - SAL with several others.  I finally finished the huge green roof and started the bushes in front of the house.   (You can see all our progress on my HH SAL page at the top.)

Santa's 12 Days of Christmas - Day 4 - Prairie Schooler - SAL with  Debbie  and  Kaye.

Singing the Blues - Little House Needleworks - SAL with  Debbie.  I hope to finish this one tomorrow.

September - Prairie Schooler - SAL with  Debbie  and  Rosemary.

I received this cute chart and she added the 3 skeins of floss (scary - I didn't have these colors) from Denise at Riverside Stitching in her giveaway.  Go check out her great stitching blog.

Sharon who's blog is Shebafudge and lives in the UK was kind enough to order this UK magazine for me.  I wanted the Joan Elliott booklet that came free with the magazine.  Go check out her awesome stitching blog.  Thank you to both great stitching friends.

I decided I needed some online therapy (geez I have finished 3 pieces this year) so I got a little stash.

I live in the Sierra Foothills in Northern California at about the 1200' elevation.  We decided to have some snow last Tuesday.  I have lived in this town for 22 years.  (10 miles up the highway for the prior 21 years)
This is the 6th time that is has snowed and stuck since I've lived down here.  It snowed for about 3 hours and was sticking on the grass, roofs and vehicles.  Froze overnight and was gone by Wednesday afternoon.

I'll leave you with a picture of Morris.  Doesn't he look evil?  lol
You can click on any of the pics to enlarge.

Thanks for looking.  Linda

PS Nancy at Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe is having another awesome floss giveaway.  Go check it out.

You are on quite a roll my lady and what a fine job you have done on your recent finishes. Great job on the online therapy session. If my cats see your Kitty Door Greeter, I know they insist on me getting that chart for them. >^..^< I think Morris wants you to drop all the other projects and stitch that up for him ASAP. Happy Stitching!!!
