Stitchy Weekend

At least, I hope it will be.

I finished the February Biscornu for the Basket of Biscornu Challenge.

It's a freebie from It's stitched with GAST Cherry Wine on white linen. I found the buttons at Frenchy's and had the beads in my stash.

The squares I stitched for Fair & Square Round 11 arrived save and sound. My partner's favourite colour is purple so I switched out the blues.

Hopefully I'll put a good dent into Dixie this weekend. In March I'll have a couple of squares for the Open Theme RR to stitch, along with the March Biscornu which I've already designed, and it's MiraMarch on The Wagon, so I'll pull Winter Queen out of the cupboard.

Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life

I've joined the Relay.

The Youth/Music Pastor at the Digby Wesleyan Church registered a team (The Wesleyan Warriors) to run in Digby's Relay For Life in June. I've joined that team. DH has joined as well.

So this is my official post to ask for pledges for this wonderful cause. Just go to Claire's Relay For Life Pledge Page to make your donation.

And not to worry, DH and I will have our cameras there to take plenty of pictures which I'll post after the relay.

Got the blahs.

I seem to have the blahs this month. I haven't really wanted to do much of anything except watch/listen to tv and stitch. But I have to do things like go to work and grocery shopping.

I've finished and mailed my sets of squares for Round 11 and Round Winter for Fair & Square. I'll post piccies when they are recieved.

I have recieved both sets of squares from the above rounds for Fair & Square.

Round 11 squares from Darla L.

Winter Round squares from Melissa P.

Aren't they great? Right now I have no idea what to finish them into, but when I do I'll post piccies.

I've finished the frog for Rebekah's RR and I'll have that in the mail on Monday.

I'm just waiting on a parcel from Needlecraft Corner with some flossies and I'll stitch up my February Biscornu.

That will take care of all outside obligation stitching for a few weeks so maybe I can get some stitching done on Dixie. My plan is to have her finished by DH's birthday in May. I'll have to concentrate on it through March and April if I'm to actually finish it. It's hard to believe that I put the first stitches in Dec 1997. Dixie's over 11 yrs old and DH is impatient to get her on the wall.
