Finally out of the funk!!!!

I was not up to par the last couple of weeks of February so my stitching was limited and I didn't feel like blogging. I think it was a combination of suffering from a cold that didn't want to go away (several of my friends seem to have had the same problem), having to work a six day week (I am currently working Saturdays to cover for sales reps on holidays) and finally my husband deciding to do a bathroom renovation that opened up a whole mess of other problems.

Today I decided enough is enough and I am not going to let anything bug me anymore (the cold seems to have subsided, I just have to work 1 more Saturday and the bathroom problems are all under control.

I am currently participating in another exchange at Stitched With Love Exchanges called Spring into Easter. I spent this evening stitching on my piece for this exchange.  No pics allowed until after everyone has received their package.

TUSAL update 

Below is a pic of my orts before I put them in the jar.  Then there is a pic of the jar with addition of the new orts.

  3. Glad to hear you're feeling better from the cold, Loretta. How much longer do you have to work those 6 day weeks?
