Hoodie Hoo Day!

OK ... maybe it's just a Pittsburgh, PA thing ... but it was reported on the news this morning that today is "Hoodie Hoo Day!"
So here's what you do to participate/celebrate ... at Noon stand outside and wave your arms around while proclaiming "Hoodie Hoo" ... my friends we do this to bring on Spring! And let me tell you, I don't care how silly, at Noon you know where I will be! In fact, at this point I will do just about anything to bring on Spring!

Aside from planning my Hoodie Hoo Party, I've been busy working on my
Sarah Harvey ... I'm hoping to have her completed by the end of February, but that is only a week away and there is still much to be done so I'm going to have to stay motivated!
Scarlet Letter's SARAH HARVEY
Fabric: 40ct. 'Lambswool' linen from The Scarlet Letter
Fibers: AVAS


I love these patchwork birds ... a little quirky ... but they have captivated me and in the last couple of weeks I have not touched the eyelet alphabet section soooo ... lots of eyelets still need to be stitched!
The foliage and the birds will all be outlined with small stem stitches ... as I mentioned in my previous post, I really like the subtle effect this gives. The birds get outlined in the same dark green as the border. It seems a bit dark to me so I think I'll just do one bird and think on it for a day or two ... might have to adjust that color ... we'll see!
That's about it for today ... let me say it just one more time ... Hoodie Hoo! ... ok that's enough! ;)
Thank you for stopping by ... have a great day ... and happy stitching!
God Bless,
Lanie  xxoo
