This is the Day!

To jump on the bandwagon~apparently!! I am in love with this sampler after seeing it being worked on all over blogland, so I decided to take the plunge! I am going to stitch it on 32 ct. Vintage Exemplar Light from Lakeside Linens. I have my own conversion, mainly because I didn't want to go buy the threads, just use up some of my stash.I used mostly Crescent Colors. Here is my conversion:

Tracy's colors=My colors
Pumpkin Pie GAST = Cidermill Brown GAST
Roasted Marshmallow GAST = Bamboo CC
Picnic Basket GAST = La Tierra CC
Tomato GAST = Chili Pepper CC
Old Brick GAST = Clay Pot CC
Just Rust CC = Just Rust CC!
Colonial Copper CC = Copper Penny CC
Camouflage CC = Weeping Willow CC
Black Coffee CC = Hickory Stick CC
Conch WDW = Garden Trellis CC

Another start~I must be crazy!!! :)

Roma tomato seedlings and HRH

Lookie my cute little tomato sprouts!! These are Roma tomatos, which I plan to use to make and can my own spaghetti sauce. It is still cold and wet around here, it seems spring will never come, but May is just around the corner, so I need to get some more things started!

I don't know how I got a single stitch in yesterday! It seems as though every time I sat down to stitch I had to get right back up again to tend to something; the kids, laundry, etc. Sometimes the "fun" never ends around here!! (BGG)
