Birthday Pi Day

Hello out there in blogland. Hope everyone is having a great Pi Day. Pi Day is celebrated by math enthusiasts around the world on March 14th. Pi = 3.1415926535. It is also Albert Einstein's birthday. It is also my birthday as well, and I am celebrating by breaking my 'No New Starts' rule and I started a new project today because honestly, Honey Badger doesn't care.



At any rate, here is my new start:


Design: The Busy Needle, created exclusively for The Busy Needle in Tuscon, AZ. (Sadly, this is now out of print and the shop has now closed due to the owner's illness as I have been told.)



Designer: Diane Williams for Little House Needleworks


Fabric: 28 count raw natural Cashel linen by Zweigart


Fibers: Crescent Colours cotton floss in Bamboo, Blackbird, Sassy Brass, Weeping Willow, and Wild Berries.





Not much of a start, but I am enjoying it, as I do all of Little House Needleworks patterns. I am probably going to stitch this twice, so unfortunately, I am not parting with the pattern. I can see stitching this at least three more times. It's a charming piece and I am glad I purchased it as soon as I had the opportunity.


Well, I best be going. I need to sit some more in the fading afternoon sun and stitch. It will do this rapidly aging old woman some good. :)
