Hello March!

February was short like a blink of an eye. My first Canadian winter without snow - love it! Lately even the rain stopped. Fruit trees are full of blossoms - it's so much different from living on the north. Though my dear friend Heather just email to me lovely captured Aurora Borealis


She also dared me to finish Irish Blessing (one of my super duper starts) before St. Patrick Day. Since I'm taking all challenges very seriously I started working on it right away.

that's where I'd left in January
and that's today

Yesterday I was stitching with Linda. Both of us are working on Santa's 12 Days of Christmas. I've started all twelve days during the challenge, yesterday I was working on day one:

Gifted Gorgeousness SAL

I've almost missed my February update of Gifted Gorgeousness SAL hosted by Jo. My Super Duper Crazy Challenge is keeping me extremely busy  but I've managed to work a little on the Quaker Christmas Sampler.  Here is my progress:
I hope I will show you more next month. There also will be another project. Seven years ago Tammy gifted to me beautiful Rocky Mountain Christmas chart and finally I decided to bring that piece to life.
So long my friends,

Byline - The Demise of Sun News





The Sun News is gone forever, I hope it will reincarnate in some other form. Happy Valentine's Day!

Help!

January is done and it looks lovely.
Now I'm working on June and next one will be July. And here I'm in trouble. July ornie looks like this:
There is nothing wrong with this look but I would like to be more 'me'. I am Canadian, my birthday is in July and US Independence Day doesn't mean a lot to me (well, my birthday is way much more important) . Can someone help me design my very own ornament for July that fits in Prairie Schooler frame? The stitch count is 52 on the top and bottom line. Left and right line have 8 x 3 + 7 + 8 x 3 = 55.

So long my friends,
Evalina
