March Christmas Train and Little Bit...again



 Well once more I'm coming in at the tail end of the month with my Christmas Through the Year project for the month. Wouldn't you know that the wind would blow on the last day when I decided to take pictures so today you get flying stockings:


I made 6 stockings for the Stockings for Soldiers project. I'll pick things up throughout the rest of the year to fill them. I made some of these last year and I really enjoyed filling them and sending them off.

Surely all of y'all have heard about Darlene and Cheryl's year -long Christmas gift making project by now, but just in case, you can pop in over here to learn more and you can join in at any time. Thank you both for keeping me accountable.

Tucking in my progress on Little Bit this month too. Here's where I was last month:




And 31 days later:



 Still stitching like a crazy woman and  hoping to put the last stitch in by the end of April.
 Then in May I can have it framed and add it to the Christmas box! I will be SOOOO glad to tuck this little fella away. I am getting tired of working on him and my quilting is suffering greatly.

ok, the above comment is me, naomig. Blogger comments are freaking out on me badly here, I don't know how I ended up anonymous. :-)

Ok, darn it, now it deleted the comment it posted as anonymous!! Argh! Thankfully I had some idea that some sort of funny business was at work, and I copied my comment really fast before it exited. I'm going to try posting this, and back sllloooowly away from the computer... here goes!
