Got Luck?

Reports are finished! Thank you to all of you who wished me luck and good thoughts while I wrote them.  I finished them with plenty of time before they were due.  I have a lot to share with you but I will save that for later on this week.  I just wanted to share a finish! FINALLY!!!!


I managed to whip up a finish today.  I stitched this fun little freebie from Plum Street Samplers about two or more weeks ago.  I had plans to do a lot more finishing today but this one took awhile.  I'm rather pleased with the results.  I got inspiration from Carol for the two button layering.  Her finishes are superb!! I stitched this on 32 count Raw Natural linen using a mix of HDF, GAST and WDW threads.  It was a lot of fun putting this together and I'm so happy to finally have a March small to put in my basket...also inspired by Carol.  

This weekend, my hubby and I got to go for a bike ride and look what has come out to greet us....Crocuses!! So excited to see these happy flowers blooming in my favourite colours!!



With Spring Break around the corner, I am looking forward to catching up with all of you, finishing, stitching, cycling, baking and relaxing.  That's my plan!! I'm sorry I haven't been commenting as much.  I am reading people's blogs when I have time and also have been drooling over MANY Nashville releases.  Unfortunately, I have enough stash to last me awhile so I have to hold back.  Plus, I have been blessed with more RAK's from some lovely ladies, which I will share with you all later on this week. 

Take care and happy stitching!

Titus says Hi!!
