Just a little blog to document my needlework projects and various other things along the way.

Huzzah! Hooray! Yippee!  Yee Haw!!  Okay I know you got the point already that I am exited about something.  I finally got a new laptop so I can blog again, and read blogs again because lets face it, blogging on a smart phone stinks.  My old laptop has been on the fritz for the past year so my hubby decided to buy me a new one for my recent birthday.  I have certainly missed being able to blog and I look forward to getting back into it. 

I have been keeping my stitching fingers busy since I last posted.  I was able to finish my seaside sampler from the Sampler Girl and can't wait to have it framed.  I stitched it to commemorate my favorite vacation of all time; in 2009 to the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  It was just the four of us, my husband, my children and I. We had such a great time and I will be reminded of those great memories every time I look at this sampler.

I have also been working on my Mary Victor reproduction sampler that I started in 2010.  I actually purchased this sampler as a kit in Colonial Williamsburg, we spent a few days there before we took our favorite beach trip that I mentioned.  I want to finish it more than anything because I am quite sick of looking at it.  Does anyone else get stuck in those slumps where you are just sick of the piece or pieces your working on?  I know I could just start something else but I really hate to have more than 3 going at any given time as it makes me feel like I'm just starting more things that I will never finish and I like that feeling of completion.

Just the other day I picked up my Blackbird Designs, "Where My Heart Blooms", that I finished way back in 2011.  Patty at Village Sampler in St.Albans WV did a great job framing it.  I really love this frame!!

Well I hope Spring is off to a good start for all of you, it's been a little chilly here the past few days but it's better than the 90 degree weather that I am sure is headed my way very soon.  Blessings to you all.
