Spring??? And the Winners

when I woke up this morning to 3 inches of snow, I thought NO!!!! Didn't Mother Nature get the message? It's SPRING!!!'s been said that if you want the weather to change in Upstate NY, just wait 5 minutes.

I was going to let Miss Daisy choose the winners of my "I'm Sick of Winter" Giveaway but I decided to let the random generator do the honors.  Here's the results!

Here is your sequence:

3  - Woolwoman!  The big winner!
20 - Blu Stitcher
14 - Ohiofarm Girl

So kids, email me at  with your address and I'll get your goodies out by the week's end. 
Thanks for playing everyone! I really wish I could give all of you a little "sumthin'...

Today's the day! It's glorious in Upstate NY, sunny and a little chilly but I'm not complaining.

Today's the day to announce the "I'm Sick of Winter" Giveaway too!  SO if you haven't put your name in the hat, go down to that post and put it in.  I'm drawing the winner(s) later today.

Enjoy your day and celebrate SPRING!

Some Finishes and Progress Pictures

Hi everyone!  Today is a snow day!  We woke up to 18+ inches of blowing and drifting white stuff this morning. Because the county has issued a state of emergency and they haven't plowed the roads and my driveway has at least 2 feet of snow (and it's a long driveway) effectively, I am home for the day!  Woo Hoo!  Guess what I'm doing ALL DAY today!  Yep.  Spending the day with my needle and thread. 

I wanted to post a few pictures of my latest Wip finishes and a progress picture. I apologize that the colors aren't true.  No matter what I did, I couldn't get the linen color right.  The pics are grey but not by choice...

 Below is Her Sampler from Carriagehouse Samplings.  I ADORE this sampler and I can't wait until I can frame it. 

I just love this center panel.

Barrick Samplers/Carriagehouse Samplings
32ct Vintage Mocha Linen

Next is With Thy Needle and Thread's, Miss Snow Fairy.  I want to make her into a pillow but I am nervous about finishing her.

With Thy Needle and Thread
28ct Mushroom Lugana

Last is my current Wip.  Honestly, I don't know why I put it away, I am loving stitching these alphabets.  It's Merrily Beams Alphabets.  This is the first piece for my red sampler wall.  I love redwork and alphabets so what could be better?  I have so many more red samplers waiting in the wings.  I want to stitch them all right now.

Merrily Beams
32ct cream linen
AVAS 946

Don't you just love those red birds with the cherries?

Today, I'll be stitching on my give-away piece.  I love what I am working on and I hope the lucky winner will too!  Don't forget to add a comment on this post to enter.  No strings, just fun!

Well, I should go out and help the DH shovel...but......
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
