Time keeps on Slipping

I just don't know where time goes....
First off have you ordered Stacy's new book???
Well what are you waiting for Stacy has signed copies for sale, or ask you local needlework shop if they will order one up!

On the stitching front I have finished The Huntsman!
Lots and lots of stitches, but all worth it.

 So while I was trying to decide what project to stitch next, I picked up a quick stitch by La D Da, some great funky birds just perfect for the spring when your stitching by the open window and can hear all the real birds chirruping away.
The new spring edition of 
Primitive Quilts and Projects 
is here
 I have 2 copies if you need one $9.00 no shipping in US
I also finished a birthday present (a tad late) for Nicola of the Scarlet Letter Year Stitch along.
So with the permission of Marsha owner of The Scarlet Letter I graphed her logo and made it into a project bag!  This graph will be available to all if I can figure out how to put a PDF file on blogger.
If anyone knows how to post PDF files please let me know.

 I will leave you with a lovely flower from my garden,
May you have a very productive week and get lots of stitching done!

I just saw this finish on the SL blog and I so love it. The colors are wonderful and I know that it had to be a ton of stitching. But so worth it! Congratulations!! I love your next project too. I think that it will be fast work after stitching the Huntsman.

And about the PDF file. That one has me so I asked my son, but he's up to his eardrums in studying for finals and only mumbled an answer that I couldn't understand. Perhaps I'll get a more coherent answer later or someone else will know how. I love the idea of making a bag from that log. And your finish is wonderful. I know that Nicola is thrilled.

Carmen, Your Huntsman is amazing! Maybe I should have attempted this before Manifesto.. Your gift for Nicola is also beautiful. love the columbine in your garden, I never have much luck with them, they die out after a year or two.

Thanks for the chart, Carmen. Your finish looks pretty good sized. What count fabric did you use?
