Stitching in my birthday month

Hello my friends. 
It`s nice to be chatting with you again,
so glad you could have a short visit with me.
This is my finished bag from `Red Home` book by Natalie Bird.
 February`s project for Chookyblues SAL. 
As you can see I`ve had more than one project on the go.

February is my birthday month and I try to make a project by starting at the begining
  of the month. To be finished either before or on my birthday. 
This is so close to the end of the month that it usually gives me time.
This year I was nearly a week into February before my Crescent Color threads came. 
I had decided to make `Flowers for Sarah Needle case` from BBDs `Thank you Sarah Tobias` book.
Once the threads came I went will this project. I`m so pleased I did.
  I`m using suggested threads and linen.

I have enjoyed stitching this. After a week this was my progress.

Today I`m this far along.
  I`m nearly finished this part and as picture on book cover you can see one more part to go.
I will show my progress again soon and tell you if I meet my deadline for this.
I was going to stitch the kitty cat `Too Pooped` but realized a month wasn`t
 enough time to complete him as the colours are so close in some places 
that I need a fine day to stitch. So this is a WIP. I will show progress during the year.
Thank you for a lovely visit and I love the comments I get as I truely  feel you did visit with me.
Happy Stitching,
