Wow its been over a month!

Where does the time go?
I am still working full time and spending plenty of time with the family. The stitching has been a little bit of a hit and miss so I don't feel like I accomplished very much. Here are a few pictures of what I have done in the last month.
 These two pictures were taken on Feb. 22, I had intended to post them at that time but
that never happened.
March 12 through March 16 I spend with a group of creative women at Lake Shetek in Minnesota for our annual spring retreat. Years ago it was just stitchers that attended but now we have mixture of stitchers, knitters, quilters, and scrapbookers. It is so fun to see what everyone is working on.
I took this picture before I left for my weekend retreat.

This is a Jim Shore - Mill Hill -
Glad Tidings Santa Kit that I started on Thursday
finished cross stitching it on Friday

and finished beading it on Saturday

I finished backstitching Tennessee, Ohio and Louisiana on Wednesday when I got to Lake Shetek and worked on the red part under the blocks on Sunday.

And a shot of what I have completed as of last night (Sunday evening).
I am not going to be able to get much stitching done for the next couple of weeks because I have to get my butt in gear and finish up my paper work for the tax man. That April 15th dead line is sneaking up on me. I always tell my self that next year I will be more on top of things and not wait until the last minute. HAHA never happens. May be next year. 
Well that is about all for tonight! Another full day tomorrow so I better get to bed.
Happy Stitching
