Monday - Monday

Remember the Mamas and the Papas? "Rainy Days & Mondays always get me down." That's today!!! Yeeeeuuuuuuuuuuuuccck!

Stitching: I finished part 1 of the SMO 4 Season Fatties. (haven't got a picture yet). I need to work on the March jar from the same designer.

I went back to stitching on my Lenten piece by Little House Needleworks, "He Is Risen" from Just Cross Stitch magazine- their most recent issue as of this date.

In my UFO pile I still have Serenity by My Big Toe and Cantata by Whispered in the Wind.

Next I would like to start Sunflower Inn by Little House Needleworks. I won it in a contest and IRIS so generously granted my wish for the floss for this project. I'm itching to get at it! LOL. So many projects too little time!!!

Wishing you all a very happy and peaceful Monday.

Thanks for stopping by,
Cathryn

I Finished!!!

This is one of the most rewarding and beautiful pieces I've done. I absolutely love it. It is Little House Needlework's 'Sea To Shining Sea' It really means something to me and makes my heart proud.

This is a close-up of 'The West Coast':

and here is 'The Southwest':

Next comes 'The Mountains':

and my part of the country, 'The Midwest':

and finally with some of my favorite colors, 'The East Coast':

Thank you Diane of Little House Needleworks. I can't even begin to tell you how much it meant to me to stitch this piece.

Thanks all for looking and following my journey.
