March update on EWM

Hi, friends!  Our snow just started to dissipate when we received another half of a foot yesterday.  Oh, do I ever have cabin fever this year!  I think some of our banks where we have plowed will last until the 4th of July. 
Just wanted to let you know I have updated my page on Early Work Mercantile.  I have 2 samplers, a covered box with pinkeeps and a small shaker cheese basket with a stitched egg listed this month.  I did a fun sampler named Bessie Polk that was inspired by Pineberrylane's newest design "This Have I Done".  I used the little gal from her sampler with permission.  I couldn't sleep one night and came up with the short verse " I don't like stitchin' but it's better than a switchin'.  Most small girls in days of yore were taught to stitch at a very young age.  Poor Bessie didn't like it and it shows by "Not my best work".  Too fun.
I have completed one of the full samplers from Pineberry's wonderful design which can be found on Patternmart or her website.  Two more to go, actually three more as I must stitch one for myself. 
thanks for stopping by, I'll be back soon with more pictures.  Merry Spring to all
til next time ~

Your sampler is the cutest thing. I love that verse . . . wish I had thought of it.
Hope your snow goes away and Spring can arrive. We are going to have a very cold weekend with lots of rain.
Many Happy Stitches,
