I know I am crazy at times. I had an overwhelming urge to start my third Mill Hill Laurel Burch cat.
And I did. I already have too many WIPs going. Time crunches on a couple of things and really should not have done it. Yet, I did it.
An interesting week.
Monday snow on the ground and continue to snow thru the morning
Tuesday wake up to heavy frost
Wednesday more frost but eventually reaches 50 degrees
Thursday it hits 70
Friday is 70 as well
Today it 50's and rainy, more rain expected over next 2 days.
I did get some genealogy and needlework done. Update on Sunday.
Enough of the weather. Could we please have a day that is sunny, regardless of temperature?
Monday was snow on the ground and cold, Yesterday (Tuesday) it poured rain and flooded areas, it also thundered and had lightening and got up to 63 degrees. But you couldn't go out without drowning. My cats even hid under the bed for the majority of the day. Tornado watches and warnings seem to be everywhere. Then sometime over night, the rain turned into snow and the temps are back in the 30's. At this point, I'm willing to skip spring and go straight into summer - anything to get out of the never ending winter.
I can't remember if I showed this finish or not. I did show it for the Mill Hill Mondays (facebook) since it is a Mill Hill kit.
I still dislike the fabric but love the cat. This is my 2nd Mill Hill Laurel Burch cat. I have two more to go. Neither are started yet. Along with too many projects waiting in line plus the numerous WIPs that are started and not getting finished.
Gather your crafty friends and make a summer road trip to Lancaster, Pennsylvania this August for the weekend show. Organizers are dedicated to creating a fiber love fest for all techniques: knitting, crochet, quilting, sewing, Zentangle, embroidery, cross stitch, Temari, mixed media, art, everything. (How many people out there do more than one technique? Many!) There will be a shopping area, classes, and demonstrations. Kreinik will be there doing fun demos too. This looks to be a fun event for all ages.

Consider becoming a vendor at the show. If you're a designer, shop, kitmaker, or teacher, this is a great opportunity to meet new customers, spread the word about your business, and make some money. Take your cross stitch patterns off Etsy for the weekend, show off a new tool, or bring your unique yarns to tactile life off your web page. There's no better way to boost business than to meet customers and potential customers face to face. We're a people industry; here's a terrific chance to foster those relationships.
