A Gift and March Word Play

I am so happy that many of you enjoyed the pictures we took of our walk last Sat.  I can't believe it has been a week already.  Time just flies!!  Last Mon. I had a great day.  I had won the give-away from Teresa from "At Willow Tree Pond."  She offered me the choice of receiving it by mail or  meeting her over at the one and only LNS in Seattle.  Of course, I was very excited to meet a fellow blogger and stitcher.  Teresa is a great lady and we had so much fun!  She took me to meet a very nice group of stitchers and then we had a very good Mexican lunch!  All this after adding to our stash at the LNS.  Plus her give away was super. I can't wait to stitch them. Teresa also gave me lots of information about local stitching activities.
I do have a bit of stitching to share with you.

 Here is the wonderful gift from Teresa,

 This little Flip It has a clam shell inside.  I love lighthouses so this will be a fun stitch. Plus look at the cute ribbon she used!

 I will definitely do this one before next Valentines Day.(Sorry it is so dark)

 Another beautiful frame by Valley House Primitives!! Janet fixed the back so it will look finished as I change out the "Word Plays" each month.  I will get a photo of that tomorrow as well as a close up of the frame. Their frames are wonderful and they are so great to work with!!
Well, Happy Saint Patrick's Day to you all!  We are having Corned beef and cabbage( I got the recipe from the great blog "Octoberfarm". This is not a favorite of the SBA but he will love the reubens I can make with the left overs! Have a great day!!

Oh, I almost forgot to share this adorable little Nuthatch at the feeder.


  1. Ohhh...what a lovely frame Barb! Darling photo of your little nuthatch. I heard swallows today for the first time - spring is edging ever closer!

  2. Wonderful give away! Can't wait to see you stitch these goodies. Have to ask...one and only LNS in Seattle? I'm headed that way next Feb can you tell me the name of the store and maybe it's address?

Or you can take me on one of your walks that my hubby and I would love to do!! Great stash and I love your March Word Play. That frame is perfect and that's so great you can interchange the months with ease.
