I can't believe how quickly this month has flown by. The weather is still very cold although thankfully snow has evaded us. We did have horrendous thunder on Sunday. So bad that it actually set my surge protector off on the computers and fish tank. Thank goodness for modern technology. This month I finally finished the January Flower of the Month which was my fifth finish this year.

How quickly the past month has gone but at least the snowdrops have now made an appearance and the bulbs in my planters outside the front door are popping up so hopefully Spring is on the way. I had three projects for this Sal last month which has now turned into four. 1. Spanish Rouge by Sampler Cove. I have now finished page 9 and into 10 so hopefully a finish sometime this year

This is something dreamt up by Jo of Serendipitiousstitching.blogspot.comWe were asked to provide a Valentine stitching pic which would then be sent to another participant. On Valentine's Day we were then to blog hop around the list of people taking part and find ours. This is the gorgeous picture I've been sent. I think it's lovely because it's original.

This is my second post for this particular SAL. The topic for this month is How do you overcome that rut you are in with a particular project? My answer is that I just put it to one side, either to stitch on as soon as I get the urge or its transported to the "Sometime" box. January I had five projects for this SAL 1. A charity square of a kite - finished 2. Rockin around the Christmas tree - finished 3. Heide by Thea Govourneur - finished 4. TW English Sampler Garden. I didn't do as much as I would have liked with this one. I'm working on the stitches on the border and corners. The corner medallions were finished apart from bearing and I've got as far as the fans which take forever
