March Activities

I will be honest, I have been playing games on Facebook most nights rather than stitch. But, today I completed 3 projects that I have in my UFO. The first is a project that my local EGA group worked on during a business meeting 4 or 5 years ago. All I had left to do was to put the fabric on the top, the divider in the middle, and the hinge. I decided that I didn't want the hinge or the divider in the middle. So I finished it today.
The second project is not quite as old but it is at least 3 years old. This project was titled "Mini Birdhouse Needle Box" from Charted Imagery/Needleboxes, etc. My sisters and I bought these at Hobby Lobby years ago. Jennifer finished her the same year she bought it. Bridget was working on hers when I was finishing mine. All I had to complete on it was the roof and the thimble box. I had the fabric for the thimble box but didn't for the roof (at the time). I found some fabric in my fabric box today that worked wonderfully for the roof. When I finished it, I gave it to my mother. She loves it and is going to put it in her sewing room.
The last project that I completed today was my Erica Michaels 2004 Freebie March. I have had the stitching finished since the end of February but only just made it into a magnet. Now I need to finish the April stitching and magnet before the end of this month.

Yesterday I worked mostly on my Miriabilia Rose of Sharon. I have just about finished her head and upper body. I had to go to Hobby Lobby to get some thread to finish her arms but haven't stitched on her since last night. She is coming along beautifully.

As for my Red Thread I have the words "stretch and tangle but never breaks" to finish and then add the buttons. I am ready to finish some more projects. I plan on working on my stitching more this next month. We will see.

Well got to go grade papers. Thanks for stopping by,
