March Owl

Well, I have been missing from blogger for a few days. This always happens to me in Spring. I get Spring Fever and spend more time outside and less time stitching and on the computer. Austin in beautiful in Spring but you have to catch it when it starts, it doesn't last long. Monday here the high was in the 70's and today it should be 88. It seems like trees blossom within a week and grass perks up overnight. Before we know it it will be triple digits!
On to March Owl in the present SAL. ( I love the fabric but it is very challenging to stitch on. I have to count over and over to make sure I am crossing over 2 instead of 3.) 

Well, I'm off to check my stash for something easy to start. It'll be April before you know it and I'll have another owl to complete.
Till next time!

Mother's Wisdom

My second quickie from the Heart in Hand, Mother's Wisdom Series. This one is very appropriate for my eldest daughter! I'm constantly reminding her to use her napkin and eat over her plate! 
These have been in my stash for years, wish I had known how quick they were to stitch! Alas, now to begin Oahaven March SAL!

Happy Monday to all!

TUSAL update,Yellowstone and Whirlwinds

My life feels like a whirlwind! There seems to never be enough time in a day and the months are passing me by. Hence, the 3rd installment of my TUSAL. I decided to post my new book with it. I'm planning a trip to Yellowstone in July and trying to educate myself on important sites to see. The hard part is planned, lodging. I booked the lodges back in November and still could not get a night at Old Faithful Lodge. It is crazy how fast everything books inside Yellowstone!!
Other updates: 

a) I have a new Owl resident. her name is Sabrina McScreechy.  She is smaller than our last owl and keeps a bit of a different schedule. She seems to look out of her box in the early afternoon and then again in the evenings. She also has a trill that the other owl did not, the family has been enjoying our new "outside pet".

 b) My husband just got word that he is going back to Japan. I am so sad but trying to be happy that he has a job. He leaves in less than 2 weeks and we are trying to get some things done before he is gone. (like the taxes)

c) I spent most of the weekend in a cleaning frenzy. We are having our carpets upstairs cleaned in the morning. So I had to get most of the things off the floor and out of the way. Times like this is when I realize how much stuff we really have! Thank goodness the daycare is having a yard sale in two weeks!  On a stitching note, many hours spent organizing stash and more stash!  

Here's wishing you more hours in the day, time for Spring Cleaning and the ability to slow down your own whirlwind!
