I spent the very stormy weekend indoors, deep into the stitchy stash and such, and I have some finishes and progress to show and share...
I finished stitching my "May" Dough Bowl Smalls, though they still need to be finished into their tiny little pillow selves...

I also made some progress on "Quaker Village"
I have almost caught up to the SAL gals, with only one more motif on the border, which happens to be a snail...very fitting and "Ironic" don't ya think?
About now, you may be wondering about my Rotation, am I right? Well, I might have taken a step off the Rotation Train and worked the SAL in for a catch-up, but hey "My Rotation, My Choice." I am planning to catch up today, and then it will be back to our regularly scheduled Rotation...with a few tweaks.
On Another Note...
As it was way too stormy to go out and play, I decided this was a good time to re-organize my HD Floss. I have used Vonna's system for organizing HD Floss for many years, in fact I may have been one of the first bloggers to adapt her system...but, I digress...and so with that in mind, I could never think of any other way to store floss.
Notice anything newish?
Why yes, those little floss babies are nestled all cozy inside a real filing cabinet!
I recently bought a bigger and more sturdy filing cabinet for all of my household files, and that left this one empty and lonely in the corner (boy do I know how THAT feels from many years of grammar school scoldings), and one day a light bulb went on and "BAM!" it hit me that this would be a perfect alternative to the previous home of my HD Floss...plastic bins stacked precariously against the wall...and viola!
All neat and tidy with my WIPocalypse 2017 bin sitting on top.
I feel so organized and lucky to have everything right at my finger tips...a real time and money saver since it is now in a corner of my bedroom and easy enough reach to keep me on track to Stitch From Stash for the entire year! Wahoo!
If you don't know Vonna (c'mon, everyone knows her, she's like a total rock star) I urge you to visit her blog "The Twisted Stitcher" and get to know her...she is one of the good ones! I also realized that most of my stitching ideas and tricks have come straight from Miss Vonna, her very self!
Well, that's all for today!
My calendar says that it was IHSW this past weekend, but I don't see any other posts so I may be wrong...again!
Thanks for stopping by!
