I worked just a bit on the Drawn Thread Spring Fling pocket.

The flap is done and I'm working my way across the back side of the pocket.  There are many different stitches.  I wanted the center shape to more resemble a heart so I cut off the corners by a stitch or two.  If I put in a couple of threads a day, I can make progress on this.

The goal today is to get the vintage metal thread all couched down for the carnation Casket Keepsake.

The mermaid is all stitched and I just have to finish the border and put in a few fish to call this done.  I hope to make good progress on this today.  I think this is cute.

I was dismayed to see snow this morning.  Snow is a four letter word. The sun has come out and the snow is mostly melted now.  I can see that the grass has turned from brown to green.  I was able to go walking outside for the last three days.  I haven't been able to do that because of the weather since last December or so.
I am looking forward to the end of next week.  BFF and I are going to two Lauren Sauer classes in Indiana.  It will be so fun.  I made it my goal this year to stitch Mistress L's Band Sampler after seeing Paola's.  It is quite a large project and will take a long time to stitch.


  1. Seeing how productive you are , the sampler will be completed in no
    time. You are just incredible!
