LHN Feb. Sampler




I finished the Feb. sampler last night. I decided I needed to finish it before January, since my husband is making a frame for me, that will be used to change these out each month. By doing Feb. first, it gives him 2 weeks to get it made for me. I will now work on January, then work my way thru the rest of the months....do March in Feb, April in March, etc...
This is my 3rd NEW START finish for the year & my 4th finish over all. So far, I have kept up with the journal idea. I have written down which project I have worked on each day, when I have finished them, etc..... So far, so good!!!
Some of you have noticed the mileage tracker at the top of my blog. A friend is doing this & encouraged others to do the same. Since we love to visit Silver Dollar City in Branson MO, I decided that was where I wanted to walk to. So...On Dec. 27th, I added my mileage ticker....you can see how far I have walked & how far I have to go. You can also help keep me accountable this way.....if it appears I am not updating, you may want to drop me a note & ask why I am not walking!!!!
I am gathering supplies today for ANOTHER new start!!!!!! Yes, I am totally insane!!! But....when I came across this pattern, it was a MUST DO NOW pattern!!!!!! It is Parson Brown by Notforgotten Farm......too adorable!!!!!!!!
The Postal Service FINALLY decided to deliver a package to me....it was postmarked in The Netherlands on Dec. 12, 2010. It was delivered here on Jan 15th.......it took over 5 weeks to get here!!!! But...it was oh so worth the wait. I just know how stressed Mylene was......worrying it would arrive. I love it Mylene & you know I waited patiently!! I have attached a picture for all to see the wonderful gift she sent me.
Have a super duper day & thanks so much for stopping by & I love seeing comments.....they make my day!!!

LHN's February Sampler is darling and I'm so glad that Mylene's package FINALLY arrived! I've been waiting on one since Dec. 2nd from Spain--I do fear it is lost for good at this point, but who knows?
