March is Here!

I am so excited that March is here. Every year, I feel so relieved when March has arrived, it's almost like Wednesday in a week, you've made it over the hump, and it's downhill from here. I know I will only have to put up with the cold weather for a little while longer--I don't mind being hot, but I can't tolerate the cold. Don't get me wrong, there are things I like about winter, but there are lots more things I like about spring--St. Patrick's Day is one of my favorite days of the year, I guess it's the Irish in me, and the fact that green is my favorite color. I also love Easter, and my birthday is in April. I think the main thing I love about spring though, is the flowers--hyacinths are my very favorite, along with lilacs, daffodils. tulips, pansies and forsythias. Knowing that getting to enjoy all of this in only a matter of weeks makes me smile.

Today also marks the beginning of 2 stitchalongs I am participating in with some online friends. One, is Carriage House Samplings Shores of Hawk Run Hollow, and the other is Carriage House Samplings "girls" series, I am starting with Elizabeth. Today I plan to get started on "Shores", since I have all of the supplies ready to go, my chart finally arrived in the mail on Friday. I have ordered the linen for all 4 of the "girls" from my favorite online shop Elegant Stitch, and will start on Elizabeth as soon as the linen arrives.

Hi Cindy,
I sure am glad Feb. is over too!

I'll be waiting to watch your progress on your two stitchalongs, as I have those projects in my stash and want to get to them someday. Actually only have two of the girls series, but Elizabeth is one of them...her hair is just too funny! Have fun!

I am glad it's March, mostly because my birthday is this month, LOL. It's our snowiest month so I won't feel like we've turned the corner to Spring until April.

Can't wait to see your progress on your pieces.
