Here is a picture of my new start - In the Garden by Barbara Baatz.  I started it on 3/17/12 on 18ct white and this is as of 3/24/12.  I am enjoying working on this one.   I am also in the process of kitting up two more new starts.

My tulips are blooming and I will need to mow my lawn this week!  It rained yesterday so I am waiting for my lawn to dry out.

I also have another jigsaw puzzle started.  I slowly work on it while I am in the kitchen cooking.

It is time again for a view of my Ort Jar.  I am back to stitching so the new threads on top are from Butterfly Fairy Day and my new start.

 I worked on Butterfly Fairy Day last week.  I only have 3 corners to stitch and a little back stitching and this one will be done.

 I also put together another jigsaw puzzle - 300 pieces Garden of Peace.
 I made a trip to my LNS to get some fabric for a new start.  I came home with more than fabric.  This Joan Elliott book.  My LNS did the framing for the cover model.
 I saw this pattern online and it jumped into my basket.  I don't have alot of Mirabella patterns but I like this one.
 Got another floss box to put all of the thread for my new HAED.  I also got some more pearl blending filament and velcro to put on scroll rods.
 And here is the white fabric that I went into get.  I also got these smaller pieces of black fabric for some ornaments I want to make.
And I picked up this kit.  I love turtles.  And I ended up with all of this stash just because I needed some 18ct white for a new start.  I have started my new project and will post a picture next week after I have made some progress.

 I completed another 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle this past weekend.  I bought some more that were on sale and found several others at home while cleaning.  I guess I will keep putting them together as long as I am in the mood.
I did purchase another HAED during one of their recent sales.  It came in the mail last week.  This is Placid Waters by Mary Thompson.  This is by the same artist that did Little Fairies at Play that I am currently stitching.  I thought this one would look good in a boys room (in case I get boy grandchildren someday).  I just need more time and stitching mojo to get all of the patterns done that I have.  I did stitch yesterday and hope to get some stitching in every day this week so I will hopefully have progress to show next week.

WIPocalypse - March

 I have made a little progress on Butterfly Fairy Day - I will continue stitching on it until Sunday with the hopes of getting back into my rotation.
 Little Fairies at Play has received the most attention since the last check in.  Still on page one. 5,500 stitches complete.
And I did finish Give Much from Cross Country Stitching magazine on 3/4/12.  This is my second finish of 2012.
