August~Seaside Completed & March Like a Lion

A month after surgery and I finally completed "August~Seaside" and have September's design ready to start stitching.  So recovery, I'm most thankful to say. is happening. 

My monitor is showing the color on Seaside as rather blue, but it truly is in three shades of Aqua.  I used Rainbow Galleries Splendor silk floss in S952 Lt Aqua, S866 Aqua and S865 Dk Aqua. 

The pdf's for the pattern are now available for $8.00 on my  WebsiteICG Everything Cross Stitch and soon through Creative Poppy 

I don't know how many people today have heard the saying about the month of March, In like a lion, out like a lamb?  Well March definitely came in like a lion in our neck of the woods!  Here are a few pics to show what it looks like - will it indeed go out like a lamb?  I have my doubts, lol.

The view from the front porch is disappearing as the snow slides off the roof

Sun after the last big snowstorm

Those are veggie beds under all that snow

See the snow that has come off barn roof has piled up so you can walk right up on it & Jasper does!

View to the west off dining room is also disappearing as the snow piles up ~ we feed birds using old teapots and cups.
Hoping spring brings us all lots of time for stitching!


  1. That's epic snow, here in UK along the south coast we got two inches, and we almost ground to a halt. To be fair we don't normally get snow, last time was in 2013. March here is always a horrible winter month.

  2. Hi from across the pond, Marlene! South coast of UK sounds lovely any time of year :)
    March gets really wild here too. First part of last week we had a winter storm warning that left us with a good few new inches of snow then by Thursday we had a new warning for floods and avalanches and it just poured rain. We still have 17" of snow left this morning and the sun is bright and making it just glisten. Wouldn't live anywhere else, lol

  3. Seaside looks great, Kathy! I always enjoy the photos of your home!

  4. Thanks, Mrs. C. We are blessed to live in a beautiful part of the world :)
