This is exciting...

Who wouldn't be interested in this news, it’s a floss give away from Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe, if you enter by commenting on her blog let her know who sent you. The drawing will be March 10th.  Today is the beginning of IHSW for February, click here 

to see what all the excitement is about. Then get your stash in order and enjoy stitching the weekend away. Part of my IHSW will be spent at In-Stitches my LNS enjoying a winter lock-in, with some good stitchy friends.  One of the big buzzes around In-Stitches lately is the registering of pieces for the annual Woodlawn Needlework Show starting March 1st thru the 31st. Maybe one day I will be brave enough to enter something, but not this year.
Since my last post I stitched in the feathers on my “Dream Catcher” by Joan Elliott, I still have the border to do and then I can check off another finish for the year.

I started and completed “February Calendar Girl” from Little House Needleworks.

These are so cute I can hardly wait to get the one for March.
I couldn’t help myself and had to start on “Dare to be Daniel” from Silver Creek Samplers, it is gorgeous.

I’m stitching it on 32 ct Lamb’s wool linen with recommended threads.
Last week I had a big dose of retail therapy, my lovely mailman brought me these gorgeous charts from Joan Elliott they are “The Little Stitching Fairy”, “Rainbow Trail” and “Spirit of the Season” and
I saw this beauty and had to have it, it’s “A Welcome Spot” from Papillon Creations.

It has specialty stitches, oh goody, goody!
That’s about it for now, time to make more wonderful little xxs. Thanks for stopping by for a visit and welcome if this is your first time here.

Your dream Catcher is looking great and so is the little February Girl. A nice new series.
Enjoy playing with your new stash.

Hi, Minnie! Just stopping by to say hello. Thanks for the tip on the giveaway. I love your Calendar Girl -- your work is gorgeous and inspiring. Makes me want to visit the little needlework shop in my area but that is a dangerous place for me to be! I have to take my husband with me to keep me in line! Have a wonderful day -- hope the weather is good!

Looking good Minnie, I like Dream catchers and you are doing a great job.
You should put a piece in the show just to be able to say you did it, that's what I did years ago.
Happy Stitching

Your dream catcher is looking beautiful Minnie. How lovely to have some quality stitching time with friends, I hope any that enter the show are rewarded for their hard work with a placemnt ribbon.
Nice new stash to keep you busy!
