Hi all,

Surprise!!! I decided to drop in and say hi before I needed to post my numbers for SFS2015.

When I left you last week, I was working on the free pattern offered by LHN called Welcome Spring. Well, I have to tell you I am not feeling this one right now. I don't know if it is the combination of the colors on the fabric I chose or what, but I just can't seem to get on with this one. I found myself not stitching at night or on my lunch breaks as I normally do.

What did I do you ask? I went stash diving. I pulled out my binder of patterns. I put my free patterns or the single page patterns that I have picked up over time. I started flipping through it trying to get some inspiration to stitch on my current piece.

Instead of inspiration, one of the patterns started screaming at me to finally pick it up and stitch it. I picked this chart (Bent Creek - I love you more) on my very first trip to my LNS two years ago. I loved it from the first moment but others kept calling my name. It is finally this one's turn.

I am stitching it on 28ct blue lugana that I picked up somewhere along the way. You can't tell in the below picture, but I really am stitching the main part of the heart with the called for WDW Cocoa. It looks gold here but in real life it is a rich brown. I think this is the only color I had on hand that the pattern called for, but I think the ones baby girl and I chose are looking good. Baby girl asked to make this into a little pillow when I am done with it. ( I think she is intending to keep the pillow so I might just have to stitch this up again for me lol).

Hopefully with just a couple more nights, I will have this one done. I will go back to Welcome Spring for a little and maybe be able to finish that one as well.

Ta Ta for now,

ooh I had to order welcome spring all the way from the USA... I hope I won't be disappointed!
Love your new start. This is a cute design and the colours just look wonderful. No wonder your baby girl wants one for herself :)
