First Finish of 2012 and Other Odds & Ends

Good Morning All and Happy Monday!

 It is a beautiful Spring morning here in PA which is strange. It is February after all and we should be covered in snow! I let the gang out this morning and the birds were singing! I can't wait to open the windows and let their song into the house (although it does come with plenty of pollen ugh).

Well let's get down to business and post my finish!  I participated in "Hermit and Stitch last weekend with the gang from: 
Random Ramblings 

 I should have posted last Monday but better late than never right?? I started just needing to finish the snow flakes on "Christmas Tea" by Plum Street Samplers (I just love her patterns and knew this was the perfect pattern to get my stitching mojo back again. It is done on 14 count blue fiddler's cloth with DMC floss.

Then I moved on to start "Dream Wish Believe" by Midnight Stitching. I have a dear friend who is in rehab after an illness and she loves snowmen! This will be for her birthday in March (so I'd better get moving)!  It is on some 14 count blue I found in my stash. With gas prices going up it is time to use some stash up!

My big surprise this week came from my dear friend Minnie over at:

 All XX's

She had a surprise give-a-way when she hit 50 followers! Congrats Minnie and thank so so much.

If you have time stop over and visit her!

Finally I will leave you with the latest picture of my gang taking a nap on the couch.  
Have a wonderful day and I will post my next finish soon (I hope cause I have my next 3 projects all planned!). I guess my mojo came back :)
