Here Comes Peter Cotton Tail.....

Do you remember that song?  OK - now I've done a baaadddd thing - the song is going to play over and over and over and your mind and drive you crazy, isn't it?  I can't help it.  I feel great - the sun is shining, there are dozens of robins showing up around our farm.  When I see robins, I know spring has finally arrived.

I've got the fever.  Started Spring Cleaning yesterday,  much to my husband's dismay.  He loves the clean house, windows and all - it's just he's going to have to search for things I've moved - HA!

My Stash of Things UnFinished-Finished (STUFF) are piling up in my studio. In other words, I have about four dozen pieces of cross stitch completed and waiting to be made in to something.  Putting on the final touches on my STUFF is a good excuse to take a break from cleaning.  Hubby will approve ;)

I am so excited - I joined the local EGA Chapter this past month!  The Mississippi River Valley Chapter meets the second Tuesday of the month.  What great, talented ladies.  Looking forward to many meetings, chatting and sharing.

The grand baby arrives on our doorstep this afternoon.  Can hardly wait to see him in person.  Of course, he will be the cutest baby boy ever seen - and smart already even though he's not-quite-a month old.

Speaking of babies, I found this project designed by Pam Kellogg on the Kreinik website ( and will be making it into a hanging pillow for his room.  It's the first STUFF project I'll be working on this coming week.

Have a lovely Easter.  More next later - Cheers!


  1. Sounds like a fabulous Easter for you then. Wonderful little stitch there. A Blessed Easter to you.

  2. Such a beautiful baby design! I'm looking forward to seeing your STUFF get framed or finished into something. What an inspiration you'll be to the rest of us!

  3. This is belated, but thanks for the shout out for the MRVC-EGA. They are a wonderful group of ladies and a couple of youth members as well. Meets the 2nd Tuesday at First Congregational Church, in Moline at the foot of the I74 bridge.Y You are welcome to attend as a guest.
