Well, crazy stalker woman waiting for the post has gone! Yes, BBD Honeysuckle Manor finally arrived but, I have to tell you, it only turned up yesterday so I’ve been crazy stalker woman for quite a few days!!! I’m sure I was quite the picture pouncing on the envelope shouting ‘yes!!!!’ and jumping up and down! I’m pretty sure the postman will have heard me as he walked away from the door but hopefully he'll like that not all the mail he delivers is unloved. It was worth the wait, the samplers are lovely and I really like the smaller pieces, plus this alphabet addict especially loved ‘A Stitcher’s Companion’ and I can see that being one that will definitely be stitched. Finding something similar to the wooden frame that is used will be something of a challenge given the lack of supplies here but that’s not going to put me off stitching it.
While I was pacing and waiting it did give me the chance to stitch and finish this….
my March Christmas ornament. Cari, Siobhan and I are encouraging each other this year to stitch an ornament a month and so far the three of us are doing good!
Then, I finally finished this!!!
Way back at the start of the year I mentioned that I had the last 3 to stitch in this series. Given that it has taken me almost 3 months to stitch one it’s looking like the other two aren’t going to be stitched in double quick time! Here's the one for March (that I did manage to stitch last March when I was still on track with these).....

Finally, let me leave you with a taste of Spring. Not picked from my garden, my daffodils are growing but are nowhere near ready to bloom, but lovely nonetheless.
