Olympic viewing every night this last week has given me lots of time to stitch and I am very happy with my progress on my Lizzie Kate Spring Alphabet Sampler.
As you can see I was filling in every little block as I went along until I got to the letter G and it hit me. If I stitched all the blocks on the perimeter of the piece I could take it to my framer Bev at Joanns, pick out a frame, and by the time it arrives I should have the rest of the sampler done. Perfect -- Bev will get it popped into the frame lickety split once I return with the finished stitching, making my wait time as short as possible. I am sooooo determined to have my house looking Spring-y by the first or second week of March and this should help.
We had a brief warm spell this weekend -temperatures in the 50's and it melted almost all of the snow. I can see the grass. Now it is kinda brown grass but I'm okay with that. However, it is way too early to truly be Spring and next week we go back into the deep freeze - big sigh!
My favorite square so far on this piece is this one...
what a cute shamrock. Love those greens.
