Spring Forward

Yes this year I remembered to turn the clocks ahead one hour!  It was quite simple to remember since I was still up at 2:00 a.m. and in a snap it was an hour later.  It was one of those nights where my brain was just buzzing along with my needle and thread.

I left off my stitching on the Greenman about a week ago as other things needed to be done and there were days I just wasn't in the mood to stitch, here is where I was yesterday before I began to stitch.

And here is where I finished last night (actually in the wee hours of 1:45 a.m.)  I will be putting the final embroidery stitches later today. 
the final stitches
I didn't make it to the wire wrap class yesterday I was puttering around the garden and lost track of time, Its over a 90 minute drive and I didn't want to rush to get there so I'll try to take the class the next time around.
I will be linking my post over at Kathy's Quilts today joining other bloggers for some Slow Sunday Stitching here's the link:

I'll also join Super Mom No Cape at
 Click on the links and have a look at what other talented bloggers are working on.


  1. What an interesting pattern....beautiful!

  2. The Greenman is really coming alive!

  3. Thoughts of needle and thread are not necessarily a bad insomnia concern. Better than worries. Totally understandable of how life gets in the way of one's stitching. Perhaps soon we will be able to see a Greenman finish.

  4. He sure is an interesting design, I have a green man but only I white he hangs on the patio outdoors.
    I have gotten up in the middle of the night and done some stitching due to retirement and naps of course make it harder to sleep through the night.


  5. Yah Greenman is finished due to sleep deprivation :)
    Great job!

  6. This is just great-it is so interesting-i am breathless to see what happens next!

  7. Wow! You got lots done while I was sleeping ! Looking great!
