I've Been Stitching!!!

Here is the before pic.
Can you believe it!!! I started on this WIP again last night and it felt so good to have a needle in my hand after a couple months hiatus. As you many know, I have been hooked on crocheting for the past few months and stitching has been put on the back burner. I joined Jayne's Crazy January Challenge and got no stitching done in January, but I have all year to finish up my projects so any little bit helps.
Here is the after pic. I only got a little bit done on the bottom right hand corner. This is a sampler from The Sampler Life Yahoo Group, and it is done in pages. After you finish a page you send a picture in and you get the next page. I am almost finished page 6 and will be sending my pic in for page 7 today. I know I can start on it anyway and the sampler is pretty symmetrical.

Big sister is watching her new movie this morning, Tinkerbell, while I do a little blogging and laundry, and dishes, and sweeping, and bed making, and tidying..... Does it ever end?

It's a bright and sunny today although still very cold, but it makes me just want to get up and go. Housework first, then maybe the girls and I will get out today, perhaps a much needed trip to the library. Hope you all have a lovely day, wherever you are.
Thanks for stopping by,
Hillery
