Can't Believe a Month has passed....

I really MEANT to write in my blog more often. It is hard to start a new habit, isn't it? Anyway, I have been busy stitching. I finished two and two-thirds smalls for spring, intending them to be for the Seasonal Ornie Exchange I joined. But since it is my first, I find myself doubting that my stitching is good enough or that my partner will like what I send. So, I start another. Of course, I like them all, so it is not a total waste. I cannot show them yet, since I WILL send one off soon. But I have other finishes to show...Finished another Lizzie Kate Flip It, for February. I am just having my favorite framer Patti prepare these now for the frame I already have, and I am just exchanging them out each month. Here is a photo of what is in the frame currently:

And I started another small on this wonderful new overdyed fabric by R & R called Virginia Beach Blend, and am loving it. I have a bigger piece, but this was just a scrap. I am stitching a freebie I saw on someone else's blog, that I think is called Swirly? I am using Dinky Dyes Coral Sea silk. Here is a picture taken just now, at night, so it is kind of dark. The fabric is a very lovely light blue blend and the thread is a blend of blue, teal, and purple. Perhaps I will get a better shot later... but it sure is cute!

I finished a couple of more pinkeeps, from free patterns by Maryse. They were so fun to do and the colors are so spring-y... couldn't resist.

Well, that is it on my stitching for now. Gonna go finish laundry, and watch Au Pair .
