Stitch from Stash update #2

Thank you so much for all of the wonderful birthday wishes!  You made my day!  Not too long after I posted, I went downhill quickly with the flu. We all ended up with it. My daughter didn't come out of her room, except for the necessary, for four days. I am still coughing. :-( Anyway, enough of that. :-) I will try to respond to everyone's comments soon. :-)
It is time again to post for the Stitch from Stash challenge. I am happy to report that I didn't spend anything this month. I did pick up the latest patterns for Frosty Forest and the Calendar Girls, but since I am on auto for those and I used my Christmas gift card at the Strawberry Sampler, I don't have to count them. :-)
One of the benefits of being sick and out of commission for so long is you get extra stitching time. :-)  I have made great progress on my Party Cakes and it's all from stash!  I have also started February Calendar Girl and besides the pattern, she is from stash. :-) I hope to finish her today. I have finished quite a bit of knitting too, but will show that another day.
It is snowing here again today, and after a couple of beautiful spring like days, it is quite depressing!  :-( Enough whining!  :-)
I hope you all are having a lovely day!
Happy stitching!
Love, Heather

A birthday start

Well, today is my birthday. :-) I think 44 is a nice number and I might just stay with it for a few years. :-) I have had a lovely day, despite waking up with a nasty chest cold. 
I usually start something new on my birthday and spend the day stitching or knitting. I didn't want to break tradition, so I started Party Cakes by County Cottage Needleworks. I have had this chart in my stash waiting patiently for a while.
:-) I am enjoying the bright pinks of the piece. :-)
Can I just say that I am way done with winter? We are supposed to get another horrible storm starting in a couple of hours. Blah!  I am just hoping that we don't lose power. They are saying that we could get up to a foot of snow.
:-( Enough of that. Let's end on a happy note.
I was very blessed by my family and friends. I am smelling a yummy dinner cooking and looking forward to having some delicious cake. :-)
I hope that you are all having a lovely week.
Love, Heather
