A Finish, New Stash,& Calves (picture heavy)

Good morning everyone! Spring still has not come to us here in SD. We still have snow on the ground, not much but some and guess what? Yep 3-6 inches is on its way later this morning, some of SD is already getting it now. 

I have another finish too show you!
Poinsettia House by LHN
28ct Lt Examplair Linen
Called for Crescent Colours
Started 11/24/12
Finished 4/19/13
After I finished this piece I pulled out Blooming with Inspiration by BRD, this is the WIP that I was suppose to work on this month. Here is a picture of my progress as of last night.
I am working this one on 40ct Wisteria hand dyed fabric and using the recommended WDW.

I also enhanced my stash this past week, I went a little crazy and ordered from 123 Stitch. Here is what I purchased.

Can't wait to start this one!

I need these like I need a hole in my head , I know I know. Into my stash they go.

In my last post I mentioned that we have calves being born and Catherine wanted me to post some pictures of our new born calves  so here are a couple of pictures I took of them.

Last but not least we had a small get together at the shop this past weekend. My SIL fried up some mountain oysters and deer chislic. He did an awesome job!

Well its time to get some house work done so I can sit for a few hours this afternoon and stitch.
I hope everyone has a great week!

Happy Stitching

Where did SPRING go!

Good morning everyone and welcome to my new followers!
We started seeing the signs of spring - the grass was starting to green up, buds on the trees and then this happened :(
10 inches of the white stuff, some places got an inch of ice before the snow came. We got some ice but not an inch. We didn't loose any trees or power to the house. Some people have been out of power for 3 days.
And of course it never fails when it storms in the spring the cows start calving. Thank goodness we only had one cow that calved during storm. Lucky us.

Now for stitchy stuff!
I have been stitching more this past week. This is what I have been working on. I started it in January and then set it aside. I had the house just about done and the snow done. the rest I have accomplished this week.

Catching up

OMG where do I begin!
 I have not posted a blog since the 20th of March.
It has to be LPS ( Lazy Posting Syndrome) (read this syndrome on Shirlee's blog The Easily Influenced Stitcher)
I think I spend too much time on the computer (reading blogs, Pinterest, face book, and all my emails)
It seems there is always things that come up to get in the way of my stitching. 
In Feb. I had done 4183 stitches, in March I only managed to accomplish 2436 stitches. And the month of April is starting out kinda slow also. Hopefully it will pick up before the end of the month.
The only thing that I have stitched on since the 20th is Blooming with Inspiration
the last time I updated the boarder was all that I had done,
so now the tree is done and I have to put some flowers the
grass and I will be able to start another section.
Over the Easter weekend my Son and his girlfriend came out and I took there engagement pictures for them.
They have set the big day for July 13, 2013, they got engaged at Christmas time. She has her dress and alot of the arrangements are already made. She is very organized.

I finally decided it was time to take some weight off , so after some looking around and searching on the web I decided to go with Ideal Protein. Yesterday I went in and had my first meeting with Dr. Chris, he explained the program to me and sent me home with all the stuff that I needed for my first week. So the weight loss started this morning. The tuff part of this diet is that I can have NO diet coke, actually no soda pop at all. But I am determined to make this work. So I will keep you informed on how it is going. I know a lot of you are also tring to loose weight like I am and what a struggle it is.

One last update is that Honey is doing awesome, she is no longer in a cast or have the cone of shame and is able to go outside and play a little. We still has to be careful with her so she doesn't rebreak the  bones, but she is enjoying the outside again.

Happy Stitching
