Time for an update

We got snow yesterday and today its foggy out
It's been a little over 2 weeks since I last posted and I have done a lot of stitching, a little genealogy, a little work at the post office, and a little partying.
The calender that I keep track of when and what I stitch is full of stitching days. Since the first of February I have only not stitched 5 days. Pretty good for me.
The first 3 days I missed I was getting ready for DH's shop party

On the 18th and 19th I got absorbed in my genealogy searches. I put the genealogy away because I knew I was close to another finish. And so here is my second finish of the year.

Birds of a Feather  by
Brenda Gervais - With thy Needle and Thread
35 count WDW linen - Confederate gray
and the called for  WDW threads
Started in July 2011
Finished Feb. 22, 2013

Now to get it framed and hung up. I truly love the colors in this piece. So with the finish of this piece for the next week I will be working on Abigails birth sample. I would love to get this one done before the middle of March because that is when my niece and Abigail will be home for a short stay and I can give it to her then. I got it out and started working on it this morning.

Last week end we had a shop party at DH's new shop. Everyone had a great time! A friend of ours grilled brisket and pork loins on the grill for us and it was delish! And we didn't have much for left overs.

It was 3 in the morning before we all got to bed and Sunday was mostly resting!

Well that's about all for now. I have to go and get ready to go to the school and watch my grandsons wresting tournament this afternoon.

Happy Stitching!
