I only stitch on days that end in "y".

Almost March

Where did February go?!

It was pretty much a routine week here.  I've been model stitching and the piece is starting to come to life.

Saturday I went to a friend's house and (re)learned to crochet.  I'm a southpaw and never really "got it" when my mom and grandma tried to teach me when I was a young girl.  I watched a "how to" video before going to my friend's house and this time it came much easier to me.  (Or as DH said, maybe I matured and learned some patience since trying to learn all those years ago.)

Here's my future scarf:

I also finished stitching my February ornament...Sugar Plums by Country Cottage Needleworks:

I stitched and finished this once for a friend and ever since then wanted to stitch it again to keep:

I'm taking a day off from walking today.  I'm having issues with plantar faciitis.  Ouch!!  Hopefully I'll figure this out soon.

Happy stitching!

Heard that is quite a painful ailment. Definitely ouch!
