This Weeks Progress on AotH January and PS Spring

Here's January's block of the BBD Anniversaries of the Heart series done.  The reason I did my initials the way I did will become more clear as I finish more blocks. 

As mentioned by Glenna - we should all be mindful of our identities.  That's why I'm just a woman of a certain age and I don't every publish my exact birthdate.  You'll just have to trust me that I was born in the last century.
Here's Prairie Schooler's Country Year - Spring.  It's stitched on 28 count Lakeside "Pearled Barley".  Nice fabric.  I will finish this up in a trice. 

Been doing lots of work for the historical society, mostly organizational stuff, but have also been having a little bit of fun with glass negatives and my NEW scanner - a Christmas present from the hubbie!

I've begun working on my third goal for the year which is Christmas Rules by Lizzie Kate.  I have a progress pic in the camera - or the computer - somewhere!  But, it's late and I need to go to  bed since I've been up since 4AM!  Gotta get some shut-eye.  Hopefully progress pic will be up sometime this week.  Hope you enjoyed!

  5. Hi, i came via Siobhan's blog :-)

    I was very interested to read your post on 'about me' photos on blogs. I'm afraid i was one of those that used a photo of cats, until last week when i was brave enough to change it to the real me! i hate having my photo took, my nose always looks crooked and my smile looks like a grimice, lol, but i thought what the hell, i'll go for it. Intersting to see why people choose not to go for there own photo.

    Love your stitching, i have become a follower so will visit you again :-)

  6. Nice stitching. I look forward to seeing more of Anniversaries, and the Prairie Schooler piece is so pretty! Christmas rules is a nice one too! Will we get a picture soon?
