Now Back to Our Regularly Scheduled Program


At last, I've returned to the rotation I started at the beginning of the year. I wanted to get Peppermint Twist back on track before I worked on anything else. I had a feeling if I took it off the frame still in need of fixin', I'd never put it back on again.


I did decide to leave the blocks on the right the way they are for now. I can always rip them out later if they're bugging me, right? There's one little noticible boo boo I still need to fix, but I'm waiting until the next time I have that color of thread in my needle. I've told myself I'm being efficient but really it's just that I'm tired of ripping things out!

After working on PT, I started Block 2 of VoHRH Tuesday afternoon.


I filled in some of the grass at the bottom before finishing the border all the way around so I know it has to be right! I'll work on it some more today, and then tomorrow I switch to Their Song. Hooray for rotations! It really helps to keep it fresh for me!

I hope everyone is having a marvelous week and hopefully not too cold! Are we seeing any signs of spring yet?

I love your Peppermint Twist :) PRETTY!

No signs of spring here yet, but when I was home last week the robins were back down there. They are two hours south of me...so I figure Mr. Robin will be hop-hop-hopping along soon ;)

Excellent stitching progress. Not sure about the weather being cold -- but I sure have a cold. Now, think my voice is leaving me. And my boyz will cheer!!! Mom with no voice : )

The days are getting longer, which is one of my favorite signs of spring. Haven't noticed much activity with the birds or trees yet.

Great stitching progress!!

PT is very pretty and you're making wonderful progress (I can't see a boo-boo anywhere BTW.)

PT is looking wonderful, that is such a great design. Nice progress on Houses too. Love your new stash in your earlier post. I have Hope Perches in my stash to do as well.

I think you made a very good decision in leaving the boo booo right where it is. I honestly can't remember what it was to begin with, and I certainly don't notice it.
Great work on The Village. Someday I, too, will work on it again.

Your Peppermint Twist is beautiful and I also love that blackbird one....I know the colors are just gorgeous! Hmmm, signs of spring here? Not today, as we still have snow, but in a few days, it's going to be about 70 degrees, lol!

PT is really coming along. Again, I just love the colors :o)

Good to see that a rotation works for you.

I'm anxious to see you work on VoHRH some more!
