On this last day of February

I'm so happy to share another stitching finish for February.

  It seems that sorting out my stash over Christmas and kitting some of my charts up has done wonders to get me motivated :-)

This is Pumpkin Spice Farm by Hands on Design

I absolutely love this one and thoroughly enjoyed every stitch :-)

I will be making it into a pillow later in the year, after I have found the right backing fabric.

The chenille trim will be edging for the pillow.

It's been another good month for reading too with five books finished, three on my Kindle, one physical book and one audio.

Really enjoyed these three from Teresa Driscoll.

The Wife Between us was full of twists and I didn't guess the ending!

The Six Tudor Queens was my audio book, although Jane is not my favourite Queen and there wasn't really anything new in this book, but I love anything to do with the Tudors so I enjoyed it.

We have also had record temperatures for February, beautiful blue skies and no need for coats.
Of course, it's still Winter so it couldn't last, but It did make a lovely change.

I hope you too have had a great February, I'd love to hear about it. :-)

I love your Fall piece. It is so nice to have one done and you will just have to finish it for next Fall.

A lovely finish and that chenille trim will compliment it beautifully. My reading mojo has gone out the window this month, I suspect that's down to the good weather, I've been wanting to be outdoors enjoying it. Shame it's broken now but we had a good run. What more could we ask for in February.

Have to tell you how much I LOVE your little robin in your header, Maggie--he is adorable. So much cuter than our American robins! And your pumpkin spice piece is lovely--I know it will be beautiful with the orange chenille bordering it :)

Hope your March is going well!
