The Kalamazoo River is an EPA area of concern due to PCB contamination from the numerous paper mills along the river. For more information see Kalamazoo River Superfund Site and wikiPedia

In Like a Lion - Brr (or should I say Grr)

Brr - it's windy and cold!

Here are my March stitching goals. I could have made the list longer, but even on planet Venus I wouldn't have enough time to stitch on all my UFO's and WIP's.

  1. French Alphabet Sampler - complete one full page
  2. Stitch and finish PS Spring 2007 exchanges
  3. Chatelaine Mystery 10 - finish part three (sans beads)
  4. Tabletoppers: finish Floral TT
  5. Start a gift
  6. Woodland Warbler Bell Pull: complete backstitch on one bird
  7. Stitch on Ornament SAL
  8. Stitch on PS Sampler SAL
Here is my Progress on the PS Sampler SAL.

If I moved to Jupiter would I have more stitching time?

I was thinking this morning that if I lived on Jupiter I might have more stitching time. I figured Jupiter's days were nice and long. Being so big and all, I thought it would take longer to revolve about its axis. But it's not true. It only takes 9.8 earthly hours for Jupiter to revolve around once, so moving to Jupiter the planet, would not be a good idea (for so many reasons).

It turns out Venus would be the place...if one could stand the heat. The days are longer there (but the years are shorter). Now this does raise the question: If I could stand the heat and I moved to Jupiter, FLORIDA would I get more stitching done? These philosophical conundrums are so exhausting.

  1. Above is my progress on Chatelaine' s Mystery X. I should finish it before March 1 when the next part goes online.

  2. I finally finished my second flamingo table topper - two down, one to go! I love table toppers. Clickon the flamingos to see the whole thing


  3. Here's progress on Brad and Nancy's French Alphabet Sampler

  4. And I couldn't resist the Cirque des Cercles - started on 36 count Edinbough using Silkweavers Everglades and Gloriana Silk - Rain Forest.

  5. Maybe I'll finish this TT soon. I ran out of one of the threads and had to order it.
