Better late than never!

Back at Christmastime I think I said I would post a picture of the poncho my mom made me for Christmas.  I finally remembered to have Hanna take a picture (you can see her in the mirror! lol) Here it is. Not the best picture of me but at least I'm having a semi-good hair day. ;-) The poncho is really soft and cozy and has a hood too. :) I love it!  The picture doesn't do it justice- the colors are so pretty..

Hardly any stitching the last couple of days- David had an upset tummy on Thursday evening- I was quite distracted being worried about him- fortunately I don't think it was a bug - I won't get into the nasty details though.  He has been fine since late Friday evening and I am so thankful.  I didn't sleep well Thursday night so I was tired Friday and didn't get much stitching done then either, just a couple of letters on my Sense and Sensibility Sampler.   Tonight and tomorrow I am going to work on my Mr. Snow Tired - hope to get him finished! We'll see.  If I am going to succeed I guess I better get off of this computer! Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Hi Tracey, I found my way to you through Brooksbooks group. I joined several months back but don't know my way around that site to post any comments. I'm not very computer savey. But I do love to cross stitch and have been blogging around looking for other cross stitchers. I love your poncho and noticed you've stitched all of the flip it blocks. I have some of the charts but have not stitched alot of them yet. I like your jar of thread snips. Never saw that done before. Stop by my blog there's usually some cross stitch to be seen.
I joined as a follower to you and will be sure to stop back and see what you stitching next.
Blessings, Shirl
