Hello fellow stitching buds.  Have you drooled over Amy's blog yet?  I haven't had time to peruse the entire site but am planning on doing so this weekend.
A few things.  Thanks for letting me know about Googlegate.  Those naughty techies.  I guess those dropped can still follow by email notifications.  They already made 95% of you no-reply and now they want to force out, as the doctors say, noncompliants.
This is to Debra and Deborah who asked about purchasing a box.  You are no-reply so I cannot respond.  For any information about anything, you must use the email link at the top right column in order for me to reply.   I am making a few more boxes to fill your current requests but I can't take any more.  So Debra, please email me and let me know which you would like.
Now for the sneak peak of a sample label on an unpainted box lid for March.  I couldn't wait to show you.  I love this sampler, pass it every day on the wall, and never thought to use it.  Hopefully, boxes will be in by then.  I ordered a fabulous chair in Ohio and think there may be a Catan's close by and will check it out.  The green in this piece is the 500 series and that's an odd teal so I don't know if the box should be a dark teal, or dark brown.  I'm leaning toward brown, my favorite shade that the paint people quit making.  I went all over looking for the last few bottles with no luck.  Need to mix my own I guess.  As you know I have issues about color.  Browns can be too gold, too red, too cute, and you already know I am a wacko so I'm sure you will understand and humor me.
Mark was planning on golf tomorrow, to be 48 degrees, but the white crap came down today and may not melt on the greens.  Get in the cart with a leaf blower and get it off people!  You only have to do it 18 times.  I received this joke recently and got a good laugh.  The crab has mostly left, leaving me with a clown.  I used to have a decent laugh, not great like some, but mine.  Now I am laughing for almost no reason starting out with a little air sound, then silence, while distorting my face until gums are fully exposed and cheeks are almost covering eyes.  Looks like I'm having a facial spasm.  This is new.
One day on the golf course, a golfer accidentally overturned his golf cart.
A very attractive woman, who lived in a villa on the golf course, heard the noise, came out onto her balcony and called out to him,
"Hey, are you okay"?
"I'm fine, thanks," he replied.
"You look  frazzled", the woman said,  "Come up to my villa for a drink and I will help you get the cart up afterwards."
"That's mighty nice of you," he answered, But I don't think my wife would like that."
"Oh, come on," the woman, a gorgeous brunette in a sexy bikini, insisted.  "I can see you've cut your head. It could be serious. Let me take care of that right away.  I'm a nurse". She was very persuasive....and he was weak.
"Well okay," he agreed, but added, "But my wife won't like it."
After she bandaged his wound, she gave him a most welcome brandy. They talked a little about golf and he discovered she was an avid golfer with a four handicap. When he confessed to a weakness in his putting, she gave him a putting lesson holding him close and intimately as she did so.
Finally he confessed, "I feel a lot better now, but I had better get going. I know
my wife is going to be really upset with me being here with you."
"Don't be silly! the woman said with a smile, She won't know anything. By the way, where is she?"
"Under the cart," he replied.
Enjoy your weekend!
Thanks for visiting.

Marly, what brown paint are you looking for? I would be happy to look around here for it. The box design for March looks great. I think I would go with a brown versus a green. Have a fabulous weekend!

"Under the cart" hahaha

A good laugh a day keeps the doctor away.
Have a good weekend

I really like the print you are using for March. I remember you working on that piece and I loved it! I think brown would look the best with that print. Have a great weekend.

Dixie said...

A too cute brown! You made me smile.

Thanks for the laugh!
Oh, I must have one of your March boxes! I don't know If you remember, but when you were stitching Virginie, I sent you a picture of one I stitched in the 80's.
Sorry about your snow. At least it will all melt quickly.
Hugs :)

Marly: I had to copy that joke, I live on the number 2 fairway of a golf course and want to share it with the club house if you do not mind.
I hate the white stuff, however this year we have had very little, the east is getting it all.
I hope your Husband gets to golf soon.

OMG, that joke is hysterical! Love it!

I've been following Amy's blog for quite a while now and what I like about her, apart from the fact that she blogs almost every day, is she is totally fearless when it comes to stitching, she will have a go at anything, and always makes a brilliant job, even assembling straight away as soon as she's finished stitching. I still have stuff from a decade ago in the finishing box.
