In between fielding phone calls...

(political  phone solicitation,
I must add...)
(in case you haven't heard, our state is hosting the 1st in the nation Presidential Caucus today and our phones are ringing off the walls),

I did get some cross stitching and cross stitch planning done over the weekend,
woot woot!!  
Stitching is progressing along nicely on the Sampler of the Season - Spring.
The house is now done,
and it even has a roof..
The house on this sampler replicates our home,
by the way. 

Here are a couple of sneak peeks...

the finishing touches
and floss selections for March's Word Play are done!  
Here is a peak it it's color palette...
March was the month that I had been stressing about most,
but I do really like how it turned out.
It doesn't scream St Patrick's Day,
 just subtle little hints of it
amongst other Springy-Month-of March
motifs...I think you'll really like it! 

Time to tootle off to Country Stitches
dig in after my much needed sabbatical,

Our phone has the feature where we can enter a number to be blocked. So when we get one of those political calls or credit card offers we hit "call block" so they don't bother us again. I swear some of those people have 20 phone numbers!

I really like the piece at the top of your blog. Can you tell me what it is?

Happy New Year, Brenda. Your project looks wonderful. I love the colors.
Your banner makes me wish I had time for stitching right now.
Hugs, Diane
