March did arrive like a lion.
But it looks as like it will go out like a lion as well.
Horrible weather - rain followed by more rain.
And add a few wind gusts.
Meanwhile we are preparing for Easter
(but it looks like the eggs will be handed out

Good thing I didn't do the updated photos yesterday. This is what I saw out my window all day and into evening.
Look closely, that is snow again. Official total was 8.2 inches. This is not disappearing quite so quickly. Our house faces north, so everything in front dries slowly, snow disappears slowly, etc. Directly across the street, about half their yard is minus snow. However our back is still fairly deep - too many trees and shade - great for summer, not for snow to disappear. Tomorrow they say it will get up to 50 degrees. Mmmm - we shall see.
It turns out that most of the day I found things on tv to watch and stitch and stitch. Also read a little in there somewhere too.
So the stitch update photos weren't taken until today.
Beads have been started
(mostly left side)
Spacing for everything has been worked out.
Underneath the row of greenery
(not yet finished)
will be words that mean something to me
I'm skipping the alphabet and numbers
really wrinkled so it looks a bit wonky
Now please go check what the rest of my SAL group has been doing
(or not - it happens to all of us)
Happy stitching !

This is what greeted me yesterday morning.
Today, 90% gone
Just a bit hiding in the shadows.
More is predicted for Saturday.
Spring has a strange sense of humor.
Yesterday was spent on genealogy.
Made great progress too.
I've already stitched some today and plan on more this evening.
Update with photos coming Sunday.

It's that time again. Some progress has been made despite my cold and a few days of not touching anything. Here gores:
Also very wrinkled
Ready for beads!
The whiskers won't be backstitched until the beads are done.
Don't want the beads hiding the whiskers.
Most of the face is a light purple/lavender in reality.
The dark pink is really more magenta.
Anyhow, go look at the rest of the group and enjoy their
