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

  6. Thank you for this beautiful post and you have been really doing great things with your blog, Did anyone here know that medical scientists have discovered a new way to battle hiv aids by using a man called dr itua. My name is Maria Lucia from California.i saw a comment on positive blogs and i will love to tell everybody how my status changes to negative and i got cured, and am now a living witness of it and i think it's a shame on me if i don't share this lovely story with other people infected with this deadly virus. hiv has been ongoing in my family, i lost both parents to hiv. and it is so much pain I've not been able to get over. As we all know medically there is no solution to it..and medication is very someone introduced me to a herbal practitioner in africa, i had a job there to execute so i took time to check out on him.i showed him all my tests and results. I was already disorganized with hiv and it was already taking its toll on me..
    I had spent thousands of dollars so I decided to try him out. Although I didn't believe in it, I was just trying it out of frustration? and after 14 days, he told me to go for a medical test. and you won't believe that 5 different doctors confirmed that I am was like a dream,,I never believed hiv has a now negative, am a living witness..i don't know how to thank this man? I just want to help others in any way I can. I have joined many forums and have posted these testimonies and a lot of people have emailed and called this man on the phone and after 14 days they all confirmed negative. BBC news took it live and everybody saw it and it's now out in papers and magazines that there is a herbal cure for HIV and all with the help of this man, if you wish to take it or not.god knows i have tried my best. About 28 people have been confirmed negative through the herbal cure of dr itua and they send mails to thank me after they have been confirmed negative,,this man is real..don't miss this chance,,hiv is a deadly virus,,get rid of it now. if there is anyone who has similar problem and still looking for a way out, his email still remains or call or whatsapp him on +2348149277967 doctor itua can as well cure the following disease:- hiv/aids, herpes,cancer, als,hepatitis b,diabetes or visit his herbs store
