Hello from this rainy part of the world. We had massive storms during the night-quite a light show-and are expecting more rain today and tomorrow. Good excuse to stay inside and stitch.

And watch a little TV. And catch up on internet stuff.

Here is my first photo for the Totally Useless SAL. There are a lot of scraps because I did a lot of frogging this month. I'm not sure if I will keep filling this jar or pour the little scraps into a larger container. The piece underneath the jar is the Crown & Thistle Quaker Sampler. It moves really fast. This is one afternoon's work. And I'm working busily collecting birth dates.

I made my Spring doorpiece over the weekend and finally got it hanging. Hopefully in the next few weeks (months?) we'll get the house painted. And my wonderful front door. I went through a feng shui period and painted the door a reddish color. It looked pretty good at first. Then the sun faded it. I just used a grapevine wreath from Hobby Lobby. Hot glued some ivy in place, the used some scrap flowers from the garage. I did buy a yellow rose bush and added the roses because a big portion of my family lives in Texas.

Well, that's all from Baton Rouge. The best part of rainy weather is catching up, so hopefully I can work on this blog and the other one. I have some great new sites to add. And a few to remove. Until then, ta.

Somehow your blog did not get in my RSS reader, sorry. You are in now so I won't forget to pop by more often. Great progress on your Totally Useless SAL!!!!!! Sorry so much of it is from frogging. But now you can move forward on that beautiful sampler! Love the door wreath, the roses really set it off.

That wreath is beautiful and everyone needs a little yellow rose from Texas on their wreath!
It poured and thundered and carried on here last night too. Glad you are ok.

I do like your TUSAL container. It's filling up fast.

And I loev your floral wreath. It's very welcoming and uplifting.

I love your door decoration. Here in my neighbourhood (South Australia) Christmas time is the only time doors are decorated, so it's interesting to see such a pretty decoration on a door during your spring. Love your TUSAL container too!
