Hubby is excited - it's below freezing and going up into the 50's: the sap will run! There will be boiling tonight!
So I was doing a bit of multi-tasking yesterday. Stitched up a design that literally took most of the day as it had over 55,000 stitches! (It's for my mom for Easter- from Embroidery Library.) I am struggling with the thread and breaking needles, though. It appears to be just the white (yesterday, anyway) and as it comes off the spindle, sometimes it wraps around, get's caught and snaps the needle. Other times, no problem. Not sure what's causing it, but snapped a couple, so I had to stand there and watch it, which makes multi-tasking a bit of a challenge!!

Several of us will be swapping pin cushions soon - there are some pix up in the Yahoo group photo file. Such talented women! I am so thrilled to be getting to know you! I decided I wanted to try a few more, so I stopped by a fun blog called Craftpudding (how can you NOT check that out?) and found a great tutorial for one with baby food jars. I just happened to have two from the Mick-sters dinner the other night, so I had to try it! Good thing I only had two! She filled hers with buttons, I filled mine wiht tiny spools of thread, of which I have 1000's, which is a whole 'nuther story someday!
The last thing I worked on was part of a posting I did yesterday. I was trying to teach myself to use the "linky-thingy" I'd seen on other blogs. I thought I'd like to SEE a bit more spring, so I made a place for other bloggers who make things to sell to pop a link in. All I asked is that it makes those of us in New England think SPRING! A couple have added them, so I am looking forward to checking it out!
Off to do a bit of housework (sigh...no fun). Have a great day, all!
