February aready

Pinch, punch first of the month.

Why are our childhood rhymes so violent?

As you can see I have been doing some back stitch on the teddies, I hate back stitch, but it needs to be done. I would have finished it at the weekend, but I got side tracked, I loved the small teddy so much I decided to put it on my family sampler instead of a stork, underneath I will put our grandchildren's names and their date of birth.

I have two patch work corners to do at the bottom, and the green boarder all around. I need to sketch some items to ensure they are placed correctly, and then I will stitch the centre more traditional sampler. Can you see the spot of coffee above, I will have to stitch over that!
So it's February already, it's feels very strange, January normally is a very slow month and drags on, I hope this is not the pace for the year. I know alot of you in America are expecting major snow in the next 24 hours, I hope you all stay warm and dry, and find time for your stitching.

This afternoon I am popping in to see Fliss, Josh and Sam, all have colds.

PS this is my 150th post, when I get to 200 I will have a giveaway.


  1. Lovely stitching. Doesn't the back stitching add that little bit extra? Your family sampler is going to look great.

    Hope you don't catch the colds!!!

    Happy stitching to you

  2. Loving the teddies! they look great.
    What a good idea adding the little one to your family sampler :)
    He is just so adorable!

  3. Thanks for the thoughts about those of us in the US andd our snow. I live southeast of Niiagara Falls (about 10 - 15 minutes) and I woke up to a few flakes . . . so I know it is now headed our way :0}

    Yes, that is a smile . . . I am a SNOW LOVER . always have been. People thought I was NUTS when I retired and we moved north-east instead of to the south-any-direction . . .I joked that I was moving to the land of Butt High snow and our snow has been less than we have been getting in my hometown.

    Go Figure . . LOLOL

  4. The first wave of snow/ice mostly missed us. Waiting to see what the 2nd wave brings. Teddies are adorable - sorry about all the back stitching. And using the bear for the boy's instead of a stork - inspired! Love how this looks!

  5. The teddies look fantastic. The little ted looks great on your sampler too!

    We are already digging out of the snow from today with another 16 inches forecast for tomorrow...roll on spring! lol
