What I am stitching at the moment

Hi All,
Just a quick note to show you what I have been working on.
Below is the Berry Box Sampler by Perwinkle Promises.
This was a class I took at Callaway Gardens NeedleArts School in January.
I have put it down for the moment, but will pickit up again this weekend.
Below is Lounging Hare by Patrick Woods, I have all the stitching elements done except for the Hare that is in the picture below.  Still have to put in the grass and flowers, hoping to have this done this weekend. 

Not sure why this photo below came upside down, but it is baby caps that I knit at night when watching TV (actually watching; some shows are just listening shows and I can stitch with those shows!!) These will go to a hospital for the tiny wee ones that are born early. 
Could not leave without showing you my sweet little Miss Saddles, she is quite the lap cat and sits while I stitch or knit in the evenings.  At night she sleeps on me when I am sleeping!! 
Here is DH Terry, watching TV with little Gingersnap.  As you can see she really has made herself comfortable; its like having a baby in your arms. 
Bought these tulips last week when the snow and ice was around, needed to have a bit of spring sitting in the window.  Of course this week, the weather has been just gorgeous - 60's and low 70's. 
Thank you all for stopping by, due hope the weather is improving wherever you are in the country or the world.

Finally catching up

Hi all, I know I have been a terrible blogger, and I was hoping to start off the new year with a bang, but it has just been crazy busy and the computer is not always my friend.  It took me forever just to up load photos.
Below is my TUSAL for January
Next is The Berry Box by Barbara Rakosnik, a class that I took at Callaway Gardens NeedleArts School

 Below is a cute strawberry pattern by Barbara Jackson, that I worked on during the Callaway School and Exhibit.
Let me explain how I became involved with The Callaway NeedleArts School.
Our EGA Guild - the Dogwood Chapter, was asked to set up and maintain the Exhibit for needleworkers to submit entries for judging and display during the schools duration.  Our guild also, handled Merchandise Night and the Bookstore.  It is a fun, tiring, wonderful time for those of us who participate.  We were fortunate that the weather for the past few years has been nice, sometimes cold, but bearable.
Below is my Potting Shed by Shepherd Bush which won a red ribbon at the exhibit.
Here is Quaker Christmas which won a blue ribbon in the cross stitch category.
So I had mentioned good weather, well came home and Atlanta and surrounding areas received a very white surprise.  I live in Macon, GA and we received 3 1/2 to 4 inches of snow.
Below is on Tuesday evening.

This was early Wednesday Morning
Here is mid morning.

Now here is sweet little Jazmine sitting in a HALOS box she is 16 years old and ever so sweet

 Here is Mars looking out of the bathroom window at the snow.
And finally, this is my purchases for Jannuary that I found at an antique table.  a 1 yard piece of 32ct linen and the 6 older Inspirations magazines at $2 each.  Such a deal, could not walk away from them.

Well, that is it for now, thank you all for staying with me especially with my long absence, I am truly going to try to do better.

Have a wonderful day,
