Happy Dance- It's finished

Dear Friends,
I have been working feverishly to get my mother in laws gift ready to take to my LNS for framing, today I got to do that, woo too, big weight off my back. I had to do some ripping out Tues night, so all the work I did Tues and Monday, well, was useless, I wasn't following the pattern , I was going off the piece itself, but I had made one lil mistake and carried it with me for the repititon, sigh, that will learn me. Anyways, she is done, I love love love the colors and can't wait to see it all completed.

I have some other LHN patterns that should be arriving today, Home of a Needleworker Too and, Sergi from Plum Street samplers. It has been 22 days since I put an order in with another store and I'm still waiting, I'm not very happy about that, don't think I'll be doing a second order with them. I can understand a leaflet not being in stock but I also bought sampler threads that I'm ready to start the pattern, so there in lies my frustration. It is what it is.

I hope everyone has had a good week, we have had fantastic weather and I have been outside weeding and my daughter and I are excited about a veggie garden, yummy, looking forward to that. It's only March and I have the AC on right now, I tried no too, but the kids rooms were so hot with the afternoon sun; her lap top started acting up so...a good excuse right?

Have a wonderful evening!

3/4 done Soleil Ardent

Making some good progress on my mother in laws birthday gift, coming up in mid April, trying hard to get it done soon so my LNS has time to frame her up. I'm really happy with how she is coming out, so beautiful.
I'm waiting for some Sampler threads and several LHN patterns I ordered to come in, I suppose it's better they are waiting for an out of stock to arrive before mailing because I may put down my African piece to work on them! I am also working on La D Da's Polly wolly doodle , love the colors on that one to.
A rainy day here so it a productive to stitch because yesterday I stayed outside and have truly declared that its official, I have spring fever.
Well, my pup is pestering me for his lunch. Hope everyone is having a great day. Thanks for visiting.

Everything OK at the Howard house

Well the bad weather has passed and rather quickly, the tornado sirens went off a few times, I gathered the candles, my cross stitch, the computer and purse all prepared to head to the basement. We huddled around the tv for over an hour, unfortunately they are confirming 4 deaths from this front and total destruction of smaller rural town, pray for these communities, it appears we will have a rough spring ahead.
The picture was taken when they gave us the all clear, can't believe how dark it is!
On a positive note as I was waiting for the storm to approach, I learned how to change my background on the blog! Even small acheivements amaze me sometimes. :)
Have a blessed weekend, be safe.
