A busy weekend but not with stitching

We had the most glorious spring weather here for March over the weekend - full on sunshine and up in the high 40s-low 50s both days. Just incredible for March in New England. Like everyone else, I tried to spend as much time outdoors as I possibly could so there was not a whole lot of stitching accomplished this weekend. I did take a wicked cool knitting class on Sunday where I learned how to make mitred squares. The class project is a potholder and after a bit more knitting, I will have something to show you on that.I don't have much more progress to show on C@HRH but I did get some stitching in on my Christmas ornament on Friday and it's almost 3/4 done at this point.

And here is a photo of the Oscar mitten which I actually completed last night. The thumb on this one gave me a bit of a pain but I ripped it down and started again and it's satisfactory and functional which is important. Now to start on the mate so they will be usable by Barbara should we get a freak snowstorm anytime soon. You never know!Hope you had a great Monday and thanks for stopping by for a visit. I really appreciate the time it takes.

I'll wear my gorgeous Oscar mittens in the spring. It'll be a new fad up here - mittens and shorts. ;)

Lovely stitching progress. :D Enjoy the sunshine!

You're making great progress on all your projects. Isn't it wonderful to feel this warmer weather? We were in the 50's here in Michigan too and it felt downright balmy!!

I do envy you for your spring weather. We got a new load (and I mean load) of snow last Friday and a terrible cold wave with temperatures down to 0°F during the nights. That's crazy.
Hurry up with the second mitten as your next snow might be around the corner as well, lol.
Very nice progress on your stitchy pieces.

Your stitching is coming along beautifully - you're not the only one who has commented how much stitching is involved in that block of CAHRH! :)
