No offense to any wiccans who may read this post title but it is so unbelievably cold here. Right now it's 1 degree. And it's sure to go lower - if it goes below 0 by midnight - which I'm thinking is a distinct possibility - we will have set another record for coldest day in March. I am still sitting in my jeans and long johns after walking the dog. I may just sleep in this ensemble as I don't want to have to change and I'll be needing it for tomorrow morning's walk! LOL I'm sooooo ready for spring.
Thankfully, this package was waiting for me when I got home from work. It is the Ginnie Thompson Flower Threads for the Stitcher's Wallet in the March issue of The Gift of Stitching. I really like the colors and the thread is very soft. I've never worked with Flower Thread before but I think I'm going to enjoy it - only one ply so no separating strands. Now I just have to wait for my order from Stitches & Spice to arrive and I'll be all set to start the project. Hopefully, I will have completed my next two exchange pieces and can start something new with a relatively clear conscience.
Tonight I started crocheting a baby gift for someone at work. With tons of help from my friends in my stitch and bitch group, and much pulling out, I finally got the hang of the pattern and am motoring along. I am hoping to complete it by the 19th which is one of the shower dates. The other is the 25th so I should be able to have it done for that day if I miss the 19th. I will show you my progress on that tomorrow evening.
Can you believe three posts in one week? Maybe I've got my blogging mojo back. :-)
