Well, I hope you all had a lovely Valentine's Day weekend! DH and I don't really celebrate Valentine's Day, and this year we don't have the finances to do much anyway, so we just enjoyed a relaxing weekend at home. I made 2 yummy casseroles, and got all the laundry off the bedroom floor....that is a miracle in itself!....and did a lot of stitching.
First, I started the freebie that Paulette posted on her Plum Street Sampler blog.I'm stitching this one over-one on a linen I found in my stash drawer labeled "25-ct. muffin." I don't know more about it than that! And I'm using some Needle Necessities over-dyed floss. I really wanted to stitch this up for DH for Valentine's (I know, I just said above that we don't really celebrate...but homemade gifts and thoughtful gestures are very different from Hallmark cards and over-priced roses!), but I'm just not that fast. I really like these quirky little birds, though!
Of course, if I could work on just ONE project, you might see more frequent finishes around here. But that just isn't my style!! So here is the latest progress on the Lilacs sampler, too. This one is going very quickly, at least. Although I've yet to tackle the bunches of lilacs made out of French knots....eek.
