Happy Spring!

I know I've been super behind in keeping up my blog this year. "Life" just has a way of getting in the way of things. I've had a billion personal/family things pop up this year that has cut into my stitching time. I've fallen so far behind on my Crazy January Challenge I don't think I'll ever catch up!

I did choose to do a SAL this year and have fallen way behind on it. It's from: I just finished the first two parts and she's already released parts 3 & 4. Hoping I can catch up before the next one's are released. Here's my progress so far.......
My other focus project is a SAL from Sylvia at: She's releasing these really cute seasonal pieces. I'm doing this SAL with some of the ladies in my yahoo group and I think I'm the last one to get started on it. I chose some silkweaver fabric called "rainbow dreams" and I'm hoping when all the seasons are done it'll look kind of like a sky in the background. Here's my progress from yesterday......
The title of this blog post is Happy Spring but spring has been slow to come to Idaho this year. Earlier this week I found some pretty flowers that popped up over night........I was so happy to see these!
Unfortunately they aren't a good indicator of the weather in my area...just this morning we woke up to snow falling. Ugh. It didn't stick around but it's still cold and I am looking forward to warmer temps so I can start a vegetable garden.

That's it for me this time. Hope all you stitchers are enjoying warm weather and lots of stitching time. Keep those needles smoking!


  1. Love your blue SAL I was too late to start that one

  2. I love your SAL'S you got in progress.

  3. Both projects are looking good so far, especially your SAL

  4. The stitching looks great. I have to start on my spring SAL soon, after my exchanges. I can't wait to see more.

  5. Your SALs look good Mary, and the flowers are pretty. Keep up the good work!!! Hope the personal stuff is working out well. I know you're having a hard time. If you need me, feel free to call!!

  6. Now I'm leaving you another comment, Mary, cause I just gave you a blog award. You can check out my blog to see it. Go to and you'll see what it's all about. Grats!!!
