Monday Update with a Finish

Last week I finished up two pieces. Monday and Tuesday I stitched up a Valentine piece for the upcoming blog hop Jo is hosting. I can't wait to show you that one but you'll have to wait. I love the push to finish up a little seasonal cutie and Jo sure gave me that push. Then with Rachel's SAL like I said in my last post I got out my new sewing machine and FINISHED it. WOHOO!! I'm still just so happy I was able to figure out my new machine. Honestly I look forward to using it again. Big Big Change from the way I felt before I tried it that's for sure.

Tuesday after I finished up the Valentine piece I got started on my Lizzie Kate February Stamp. Last night I was able to finish it up finally...
(6) February 10th
February Lizzie Kate Flip-It Stamp
Stitched on 14ct Oatmeal Aida
Threads are Suggested DMC
Started Feb 5th. Took 6 Days.

It seemed to take forever because I got an hour here and an hour there. I was busy doing some things on the computer. We also got our Las Vegas vacation all finalized finally for April. What a pain making sure everything is setup and ready to go. I'm thankful it's over. Now we can just look forward to it.

It's a new week. Fred and I went out Saturday and gathered what we needed to stay in another week. We have snow, rain, wind, and ice in our forecast this week. So probably another stay inside kind of week. No reason to get Jeremiah and Mom out if we don't have to. Plus Fred and me enjoyed our time together grocery shopping really. I'm so lucky. He's a great husband.

So I hope everyone reading this has a great week. I'm going to start the week with some time on Beer Dragon. He misses me. Then we'll see what else jumps onto my Q-Snaps. I hope you find time to stitch too. See ya on Thursday for the Valentine Blog Hop!

I'm so excited that you and your machine are getting along! Your February finish is gorgeous, but you already knew that haha!

Very happy to know that you are stocked up and ready for more hideous weather. It's been very cold here, but this will will warm up to the 50's if you can believe that! Then it will drop back down to where it has been which is just too darned cold. Stay warm!

And another YOW piece bites the dust and it looks fab, as usual! I loved stitching this stamp series, I hope you are enjoying them too. :)
