I am officially 1/3 of the way done! This is going to be one looooong piece once all twelve are finished!

Season of Hope HD

Season of Hope by Little House Needleworks
stitched with DMC on 28-ct. Antique Ivory linen

I've been on a bit of an internet diet this last week. We had a storm take it completely out, but once Verizon declared it fixed we were still staring at a dead modem. We're back up and running again, and I've been playing catch up on my blog reading. Please forgive me lack of commenting! I'm hoping to be back to "normal" soon!

I've been busy out in the yard, trying to stay ahead of the weeds. They sprout as fast as blog posts! If only there was a delete button!

I've also been getting a tiny bit of stitching done. I'm working on Give from LK and should have it finished soon. I need to tie myself to my chair tonight because I really don't have much left to do on it. Believe it or not, I still haven't started VoHRH! Why do I procastinate?!?!?

We went to our first Rangers game this season on Tuesday. My daughter treated us to some very nice seats, in the fifth row right behind the first base dugout. And who cares if we lost! The weather was perfect (remember last year's rain-out about this same time?), the view was ideal, the food was classic (hot dogs with grilled onions!) and we had a fantastic time!

Goal Review

A little late, but here is what I accomplished in March:

1. Start and finish "Remember" by Lizzie Kate. Yes!
2. Start and finish "Season of Hope" by Little House Needleworks. Almost...
3. Start "Spring Has Come" by Prairie Schooler. Yes!
4. Start and finish at least one of the bird ornaments from "Birdsong II" by PS. Yes!
5. Reduce my pile of UFO's! No... I guess that's why they're UFOs :-(

For April:

1. Finish "Season of Hope" by LHN. (I am sooo close on this one!)
2. Start and finish "Give" by LK.
3. Work on "Spring Has Come" by PS.
4. Start Village of Hawk Run Hollow by CHS!!!
5. One more attempt at the UFOs!

I have been such a lazy blogger these last few weeks. Maybe I should add "Be a better blogger" to my list! It's not that I don't have things to share, it's just that I'm woefully ashamed of my photography skills! I may have to turn that job over to my DD. She has a much better eye than I do!

You may have noticed VoHRH on my list. I finally broke down and splurged on the Vikki Clayton silks. I had the fabric and pattern already so now I'm all set! Woohoo! I'm excited but I must admit, also a little nervous. 40 count fabric?? Eep!

We've had a few more showings on the house but still no offers. I'm starting to get grumpy! Any happy thoughts, prayers, good vibes, rain dances, or whatever else you can spare would all be greatly appreciated!!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!!
