I didn't mean to be so quite for this long. I've just been in a funk and trying to get out of it. I think I am but, I'm still having my blue moments/days. I don't know why I keep getting like this. I try and put the thoughts that are getting me down out of my mine but, they keep popping back up. I guess it's cuase I can't find an answer for them.

My order arrived from ABC Stitch yesterday. A few items that I need for these kits are still on back order but, I should have them soon.


I spent what free time I had today finishing up my March Lizzie Kate Flip-It. Once I can get the border and the month name done the rest of it I can knock off in a day. If I hadn't been so lazy this month and last month I could have gotten them done in 2 or 3 days.



I also found my Blackwork Fantasy Garden piece. I'd actually been looking at it all this time. I'd put it on top of my stitching cabinet but, I thought it was another piece so I didn't really take a good look at it till today. I started in the middle and I'm going to try and do a lot of the borders before I do the filling in of the blackwork. I thought this might make it go faster.


I dragged DH to see The Bridge to Tarabithia today. I loved this book when I as little and I was so excited to see that they had made it into a movie. Then we came home and got some more junk out of the garage. Actually there are a bunch of boxes filled with stuff that need to be thrown out and some that need to go into the basement then maybe I can put my car in the garage.

Jenn, your Lizzie Kate March Flip It Block is really soooooooo cute!! Wow what a great job and I also like your blackwork that you are starting!! You and I have the boxes in the garage in common! We still don't have many put away yet and still can't get into the garage. It is something that I can honestly say that I would rather be stitching!! I am not sure what to do with some of it either!! Your stitching is awesome!! Debby :)

Your flip it turned out very cute, and it was done before St. Pats day, good timing. Your blackwork is starting to take form and will be so pretty.

What fun stash to get. I have Ivy on order but haven't received it yet, they are both very pretty.

We are going into our third day of sunshine here and the sun is doing wonderful things to lift my mood. Hope you are getting sun there, that it helps, and that you are feeling better soon. Thanks for the mention of the grape cluster pattern, I'll remember it as I work on deciding what to put in the little frame.

It's so nice to get stash! Looks lovely esp all those beads and things. Love the flip it too. The finishing on the biscornu was soo easy. There is a link on my blog with foto instructions that I used. Brilliant!

Love the stash, love the flip it - hate the funk. I think it's that time of year. I've been in one too! You aren't alone. Good luck with the garage - I just did a major purge of junk in my apartment. It's such a great feeling.

How was the movie?

I understand about funks...I was in one the last week too...I'm hoping that they don't last long...with spring coming on maybe that will help?!

Great stash! The flip it is really cute. I hope you get to feeling better soon. :)

OOPS..., I almost forgot... *Ü* sorry...
Congratulations on your HD!
It looks really good!

I also bought a blackworkbook last week, and was thinking, ahummmmmm more like dreaming (I've to many WIP's), of making a sort of garden from blackworkblocks...
So I'm very interested how yours will look like, I like that gold touch...

I think a lot of people are in a funk at this time of year Jenn. Myself included so you are not alone :o)

You did a fantastic job on your LK :o) Are you doing them all on one piece of fabric?

Oh stash...sigh! I'd love to have some stash in my mailbox. Enjoy!

Congrats on finishing the Lizzie Kate March Flip it. I'm glad you got your ABC Stitch order. Both look impressive to stitch. Have you decided what material you will be stitching them on.
I hope you feel better soon. The cold weather probably didn't help but now that it's getting warmer, maybe you will feel rejuvenated like a spring flower.
Hugs!
