There are few obligations other than a mandatory bathroom clean and floor sweep that need to be done.
And so I stitch.
My stitching progresses
Rahenna's Band Sampler RR. This was a quick and very satisfying stitch. I loved how it came together.
My Desert Mandala. I have completed the top two borders and the two corners except for the specialty stitches and the beads. I can now see an end in sight for this 5 year WIP.
I stitched up Oakley Owelet from Just Nan.
From the Chicago Retreat by Cathy of Hands on Design I stitched this.
When I returned from the cottage, I had a very full mailbox. These are some of the things in the box.
I have joined Stephanie's Fabric of the Month Club. My first fabric is Bewitched 32 count lugana. I ordered two special dyed pieces Melody (for the 2014 Passione Ricamo 20th anniversary Mystery) and Red (for a Raise the Roof design). Here are my beautiful fabrics.
I belong to a Facebook exchange group and I won this lovely giveaway from Marie and stitched it up.
My Birthday Floss Exchange group on Facebook has a Secret Stitcher Sister exchange running right now. Here is my gift from my SSS. Pretty, pretty threads and a girl can never have too many pairs of scissors.
From my dear friend Ginny - this lovely project bag made by Karen and other goodies. I had stitched a piece on Ginny's Joan Elliott RR that was blank.
I so enjoyed stitching it and did not expect such a lovely gift in return.
On my way home from Arizona this winter during those long hours in the car I wove this afghan for a dear family member who has moved into their beautiful new home. It was well received.
If those of you out there in blog land are still reading my blog, please leave me a comment so that I can say hello to you.

and now, since the Laundry fairy has not arrived for her regular shift, I will say goodbye and get on with my laundry.
