Had to flip the calendar this morning - where did February go? Mom always told me that as you get older time goes more rapidly - at this rate I'll be digging the Christmas decorations out next month. Shoot, I keep stitching more Christmas ornaments and I'll need to finish them soon for the holiday!
I have new followers to whom I must wave hello. There are now 260 of you! Seems I never had my 200 follower give away - maybe I should start planning my 300 give away now?!!
And on other program notes - Sierra and Georgena have both joined our Lizzie Kate Fat Guys/Snow Belle SAL. Sierra's blog is PatchworkStitches. Georgena doesn't have a blog but may send me her progress so I can share with all of you here. Welcome aboard ladies - glad you've joined us!
Since it is the first of the month - I have pictures of said SAL!

|And the overall look of the piece|
I've nearly completed March's stitch. Just a few more snow flakes. For some reason I felt the need to push this month's pattern to completion. Maybe I'll be super busy in March?
I do that...get these weird feelings that I must get something done early. And most generally, something happens that it works out to my advantage. Christmas 2009 - I had all my shopping done super early - had my gall bladder removed in the middle of the month. Crossing my fingers that isn't the case again - no more surgeries thank you. Maybe this time it will be something to celebrate!
Tomorrow Courtney and I are going to a baby shower. Ahhh, all those cute outfits and baby things. Someday it will be for a grandchild...someday. Must do the wedding in October, graduation from school in 2 more years, get the new job, and THEN the babies come.
Speaking of wedding ~ working on the guest list finalization. Then next week will be checking the chair/table rental place. Then DH can rent the tent. Yep, the wedding will be in the backyard and the reception will follow in the tent. We're talking a 70' long tent! Courtney fears it will be a striped tent and it'll look like the circus has come to town. With nearly 150 people in my yard it will be a circus - just no animals!
Time to go retrieve the curtains from the washer -- Bridget has this need to push them aside to peak outside and they get filthy. Here are my white curtains and I have these black puppy stains (and hair) all over them -- ick. Wonder is that nose grunge or spit on the curtains? Either way, I'm glad they wash up well.
Time for the weekend to start - Make sure to laugh as much as you stitch!
