A Spring Time Finish!

First off...I received an award from Babs! It is the Sunshine Award.

This award is for someone who has inspired you in some way...
1. Put the logo on your blog or within your post.
2. Pass the award to 12 bloggers.
3, Link the nominees within your post.
4. Let them know they received this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.

It's so sweet that Babs thought I had inspired her in some way. Babs, you just don't know how much this brightened my day. Thanks so much!

I want to give this award to ever person that has posted a comment on my blog in the last year. I will not list you individually, but want to say thanks none the less. Thanks for sticking around when I have had very little posting on my blog in what seems like forever. Thanks for your sweet comments. They have been very much appreciated and have given me a smile and a warm feeling in my heart during what has truly been a long year for me.

I will specifically name my 3 RR friends. Thanks for doing the round robin with me and for your emails along the way. Also, to my local stitching friend, Sharon, who got me started blogging in the first place and whom I love getting together and stitching and talking with.

My RR Friends:


My local stitching friend:


Thanks for everything!

I can't say I have done much stitching lately. I am still waiting for a shipment of thread to arrive so I can mail off my RR piece. I am beginning to fear that the threads got lost in the mail. Carrie (of Carrie's Creations) is looking into it for me. She was wonderful to work with, even if I did wake her up. :-) Hopefully we can get it sorted out soon and my threads will arrive.

I did manage to "finish" this piece by Little House Needleworks. I had actually finished stitching it 2 years ago, but never "finished" it. So...after so much time, here it is!

Title: Faith - Inspirational Verses Thread Pack
Designer: Little House Needleworks
Threads: Recommended Crescent Colours- came with packet
Fabric: Not recommended fabric - used 28 ct Golden Needle (no longer available) - very similar to a golden khaki color - this picture doesn't show how dark/golden it is.

Made into a pin keep with shown backing fabric and trim.

Believe it or not, I actually dug out my train project a couple of weeks ago. I didn't get much stitched on it, but at least it has seen the light of day again. :-) I only have a little bit left on it, but this project just seems never ending and daunting. I truly want to finish this project this year. Just hoping I get more "in a groove" with it soon. Make sense?

I hope everyone is starting to see a little bit of spring in your area. Spring here is starting to bloom, but the wind still has a good nip to it.

Until next time...take care!

I started following your blog a year or so ago when I discovered you were also working on the train piece. I'm 3 or 4 years into mine. I'm working from the right side towards the left and trying to do the outlining along the way. Maybe we should do a SAL to help inspire each other. I have some pictures in my WIPs album on my blog if you're intersted in seeing it.
Happy Stitching
