Taking inventory…
I’ve been collecting the DMC Color Variations floss and recently acquired some of the newest colors as well as a few more of the older colors.
I printed the color card and used that as my inventory list.
My DD was with me when I found a few of the newest Color Variations and this one is her favorite because it’s called Camouflage!

BLOGVERSARY - Hard to believe that I’ve been blogging a whole year!  I am so blessed to have followers that I can share my stitchy and family stuff with.

ANOTHER SAD ANNIVERSARY – Tomorrow is the 2nd anniversary of my dad’s passing.  He is still missed so much and there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think about him.

IMAG0498HERE ONE DAY, GONE THE NEXT – With our unusually warm weather so early in March, the flowers and trees have budded and bloomed really early.  My hardy azalea bush was beautiful in full bloom.

And then the cold temps returned.  We had several nights of temps in the freezing range that destroyed the blooms on the azalea bush as well as our fruit trees and other blooming trees.

I’m a bad blogger!
There’s been a lot of Liebster Awards going around these days and I’ve been the lucky recipient TWICE!

I’m truly touched that two fellow bloggers chose to award my blog.  However, the conditions a blogger must satisfy when accepting the award include awarding the Liebster Award to five other blogs with less than 200 followers.  While there are many blogs out there to choose from, I found that they have either already been awarded the Liebster Award, have more than 200 followers or don’t accept awards.

So, as much as I appreciate being awarded the Liebster Award –- twice, I am not able to accept the award.  I do hope the fellow bloggers who awarded my blog will understand.



  1. nice stash.
    I had to do quite a search as well to award that Liebster Award. Unfortunately someone had also already recieved it.

  2. Your flowering bushes look beautiful. Oooh, I'm jealous over your color variations. I haven't been able to get the newest colors yet. Congrats on receiving the award and your one-year blogversary. Sorry about your dad.

  3. I love those threads. Happy blogiversary! Sorry to hear your dad passed, sending cyber hugs your way. Many people get the award more then once.

  4. I've got less than 200 hundred followers on my blog!! Love the pics of the flowers sorry the blooms died. My father died over 20 years ago and I miss him when I tell my daughters stories about him. I have purchased 6 of the new variations. I do think DMC has filled in the gaps in their color scheme for the variations.


Thank you for spending time with me and visiting my blog. I love hearing from you and your comments are most appreciated! If you are set as "no reply", I won't be able to reply to your comments.
