Welcome Mary Margaret...

Or at least what little there is of her!  I had planned a full day of stitching from morning until night yesterday.  But alas, it was not to be.  Saturday we were out in the yard, raking and pulling out everything out of the flower beds, cleaning out the pots and containers.  Which is all well and good, and it all looks wonderful! (I love the fall clean up!) Unfortunately, regardless of the allergy pill that I had taken on Saturday.  I woke up on Sunday morning with a huge headache from sinus pressure, with my face and eyes all swollen. booo hooo!  So after a couple of hours of struggling to get rid of the headache.  I just ended up taking another allergy pill and laid back down and slept until 4 in the afternoon.  I NEVER do that!  But I did wake up feeling better.  So it helped.  Still a little swollen around the eyes today, but at least I don't look like I got attacked by a swarm of bees anymore.  So this is what I managed on Mary Margaret last night for a couple of hours.  She is going to be so much fun to stitch! YEAH!

I also had a little ornie finish from last week. I thought this turned out pretty.  I don't know what fabric this is, or what shade it is.  I know that's it's 28ct but I don't know anything else, it was in the scrap drawer, but it was perfect for this piece :)

Fresh Fallen Snow by Little House Needleworks - from 2011 JCS Ornie issue

I am going to be starting a new project this week as well.  First I am part way through another ornie and then I'm starting.  I have everything ready to go, so it's just a matter of starting it.  I'm excited about that piece too :)

Another smile from Lulu!

Hi Barbi. Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog. :) it's always so in to meet a fellow stitching and blogger.

First off, Lulu is ADORABLE!!! Oh man, how can you stand not to kiss her cute face all the time. :D

Congrats on the ornie finish. I love the subtle colors of it; great start on Mary Margaret.

Sorry to hear about your allergies. I get them bad too, so I empathize. Glad you're feeling better today. :)

Sorry to hear your allergies were making you feel so bad. I hope you are feeling much better today.

Great start on Mary Margaret!

I love this ornie, the colors go so well with the fabric. I'll have to put this one on my list to hopefully get a few ornies done for my tree this year.

Lu-lu is just so pretty and has a sweet smile.

Gosh, Barbi--that sounds like one powerful allergy attack. I'm the lucky one in my family as I'm the only one who doesn't suffer from allergies...

That ornament is so, so pretty--one of my favorites from this issue. I'll have to work on that one next month :) Hi to Lulu!!

Hi Barbi, Just had to say I love your little ornie and the colours you chose. Lulu approves too by her big smile what a sweetie.
Hope you are feeling so much better by now. Hugs.
Nice start with Mary Margaret and I love your Elizabeth finish.
