I wanted to show an update on Deepest Love and show a new start. Still working on her fin but I feel I am making good progress if I can just stick with it and not to tired to stitch... Here is where I am so far...

April is flying by fast, and my stitching has been slow. I finally finished my Iced Mocha Snowman Ornament by Joan Elliot.
I'm posting all of my pictures, and hoping my phone leaves them in order.
May your stitches stay even, and the frogs stay away.

I debated whether to continue posting these. Some will be posted more than once during the year as I stitch a new one.
I'm currently stitching my second set of Hot Cocoa Snowmen Ornaments. This is my starting of Iced Mocha.

I skipped this in February. I did stitch an ornament, but not this. Life has a way of laughing at the plans that we make. That's ok. Last night it hit me just how silly the pressure that I was putting on myself was. I give others with chronic health issues a huge break, but not myself? Absolutely silly. I'm actually doing pretty good! I need to applaud myself more often.
This month I had thought that I would spend more time stitching on this, but I made a promise to myself. I'm going to try to keep it. I don't know if I'll finish my Snowman Ornament for this month, but I can do my best.
I don't remember exactly which day I pulled this out, and I didn't stitch every day. I spent time with my husband, and getting used to my new compression stockings. My legs are definitely feeling better. The pain and soreness is starting to pass. Soon I may even tell how much fat has accumulated on my calves, and not just edema.
I digress with life again. LOL! This month I'm not going to include all of my progress pictures. I thought that I would just share my starting, and stopping points. I'm happy with how much I was able to do.
See you soon with this month's Snowman Ornament. I hope that you are are all well. Or at least well enough and happy.

Sooo.... I love Stargazer. But I needed a break. She was getting heavy and hurting my wrist, so I decided to start a new Mirabilia for Mira March. You might have seen the new Mirabilia that was released in February. Her name is Andromeda. I find her a bit...meh. She's nice, but not really my thing. That is, until it was pointed out to me that she would make an amazing Ariel. YES PLEASE. So, I've started my first Mira conversion. So. Scary. But I'm really enjoying it.
I made up this digital conversion and it hooked me. So I picked up the fabric and pattern a week or so ago and started her on March 25th. The fabric is Sunny Dyes "Surf & Sky".
Here's my progress so far. She's rather small, much smaller than Stargazer. She's only like 8x11 inches finished and fits on a Fat 1/8. I'm hoping to finish her next month. Wish me luck. ^_^
