My Ma still blows

I feel really guilty for not stitching on my Snapper Year. I got a little distracted with strawberries. So, my March WIP is still stuck on that rude phrase and the new one is growing quickly. Well, not TOO quickly! I admit, frogs invaded for a short time because I thought I was so above checking the pattern, photographic memory ~ you know? NOT!

When this is finished (maybe a pin pillow?) I'm thinking of sending this to someone who reads this blog...


Thank you for visiting my blog today!

So cute! Who's the designer Sharon?

You don't have much of MA left so you better get stitching ;o)

Julie M said...

Too Cute Sharon! Who cares about a dumb ol' WIP anyway.

Dani - tkdchick said...

Great job on the strawberries! I think a pin cushion would be perfect!

Julianne said...

Very pretty! Strawberries are just coming into the grocery stores here in California. Who is the designer?

Barbi said...

Very cute strawberry! I thimk it'll make a great pin pillow.

Colorado Stitcher said...

Very pretty stawberry. Sorry about the frogging and hope you WIP get smaller!

Karen said...

I had to laugh when I read the title in Google Reader...just had to click for an explanation! Too funny, but I do like your latest finish. Very cute.

Ya know, I think you just have to stitch on what you are in the mood to stitch. I believe you get more done that way =) Other than the one or two exchanges I signed up for this year, that is what I plan to do! Even then I still have to choose between cross stitch, knitting, crocheting, beading, tatting.....

Jan said...

That is cute. I cracked up at the title to your post.

Jennifer said...

For me? How kind! LOL! Seriously though, I was just talking about Strawberry picking with my mom yesterday. We were reminising about how she would tell the people that they should weigh me before I went in and then when I came out because I would eat more than I picked! I love the good old days!

Karyn said...

Say it aint so, Daffycat, you couldn't possibly ever need to frog! Why you're my hero :) I kinda liked that "rude phase" it made me chuckle...but I must say that your strawberry is beautiful and oh so perfect, as usual...I think it would be great as a pillow...you can use one of those awesome new fabrics that you bought....in fact I must tell you I had a dream about your stash! I know, I got a problem! LOL...Stashonista's unite!

Stay warm and hugs
Ma

Glenna said...

That is a cutie, and don't feel guilty about Snapper Year--this is supposed to be a no-guilt hobby!

And that adorable ornie that you made and I won hung on the best part of the Christmas tree for the entire season. Just think--I can get it out again in something under 9 months! Hah--Christmas is coming!

Myra said...

Cute start Sharon. I have been thinking about strawberries this past week. We have a farm about a mile from us and we picked and ate our fill last spring. This year I am going to make sure I freeze some so I can enjoy "almost" fresh strawberries in January!

Nancy said...

Beautiful strawberries!

Hi Sharon, this would make a really lovely summer pin pillow, will you plz share when finished? Always enjoy each and every one of your posts:)

xoxo

Parsley said...

Have I ever told you I loved the Strawberry Shortcake doll as a kid? This would make a cute pin keep. You could even spray some strawberry perfume on it. LOL

corinna said...

Pretty strawberries! And it really won't be all that long before we're picking them again. Yum!

The strawberries are too cute- don't stress about the March WIP- you will get it done!

Christine said...

I didn't know frogs liked strawberries!
Its really pretty despite their froggy interference

Sadie said...

That's pretty! Seems to be a fruity theme going on in Bloglandia. I'm stitching cherries and I saw someone else stitching apples. Time for a fruit salad :-)
Hope the frogs stay away x

CATHI said...

It will look so beautiful when finished! The strawberry season starts within some weeks here - and I am already looking forward to eating a lot of strawberries!!!

I love your strawberry. I bet it will make a cute pin pillow. Who is the designer?

Annie said...

Very pretty strawberry. You've been a busy camper...not surprising you would fall behind in stitching. Life just gets in the way sometimes.

Julie said...

Pretty design

dianemi said...

Ma blows. lol I love it! But remember, there is no 'guilt' in stitching. :) Love your strawberry pin pillow, too Sharon. Really pretty.

Angela said...

Very pretty distraction Sharon :) Whoever receives this will be lucky indeed!

Good Morning - I am behind in blogging. Too much to do and not enough time.

I love the pictures of your stash haul - all that dmc, wonderful!

I also love your little snowman piece. Was the design in a magazine? It is just too cute!

Of couse I am partial to the strawberry finish as it reminds me of spring and not snow. I think it will look wonderful as a little pin pillow.

Enjoy your day and I can't wait to see what you stitch up next.

Berit said...

This is too cute-loving the border! :)

Stephanie (Joie de Bayou) said...

So pretty . . . Pontchatoula strawberry season is just around the corner. Yum!

Kathy said...

I'm smiling at your previous two posts that I had missed. Love that photo of the floss. :) I've done that before at AC Moores when they had a sale. Fun. Fun. Fun.

Love your snowman finish.. It is adorable. And so is the strawberry.

Carolyn NC said...

I've been behind for the past week or so - ROFL - love the post (both). I don't blame you; I'd be stitching strawberries for a while, too - it's adorable!

Rachel S said...

Pretty finish.

I love the "Ma blows," LOL.

Aussie Stitcher said...

The strawberries are looking wonderful. Love your new stash, LOL at the seven foot receipt.

Carol's Stitching said...

The strawberries are so cute! :) Hopefully you can get rid of the frogs and enjoy your stitching! I too have those moments of thinking that the pattern on my head is the same as the one on the page...... rats!

Carol said...

Unfortunately, I'm allergic to strawberries, but I love looking at them!! Very cute, Sharon :)

jayne@~an eye for threads~ said...

Linda said...

Very nice...it would make a sweet pin pillow.

Love your new stash....the threads are yummmy....I'd just love to play in them. That is the longest receipt...love it....hugs, Linda

Missy Ann said...

Heh, March is my favorite month of the Snapper Year. ;)

Second Chances said...

I love the strawberry pattern. You are doing great. Hopefully no more frogs!

Brigitte said...

A wonderful strawberry pattern and you can finish it in so many different ways, a pincushion, a pinkeep, and hanging pillow, a flatfold. And each of them would look great with this motif.
