Sarah's progress 0203 and "Setsubun"

Hi, how are you?
It was a fine day today, not so cold, not windy, was a very comfortable day!
How's weather in your country?

BTW, here is my "Sarah Spurr" © Carriage House Samplings, I can't believe that I can stitch very faster than usual, it's so fun to stitch along like when I began cross stitch!!
Sarah is so beautiful, but I'm not sure the thread colours that I've changed...
What do you think? so far so good? or do I better to change somewhere in this piece??
I do hope everythings going well in the end!!

Tomorrow, my friends and our children will visit one of their home to let them play and of course as for us to stitch!

I'm going to write down my 2011's goal on the left side bar sometime soon, so I can figure out what to stitch next! :D
If you are planning to stitch the same project, please feel free to let me know, we may be able to do SAL if our timing correspond to our plan!

BTW, today was a "
Setsubun", Sweetie came back from Preschool with Ogre mask as every year!

This year's Ogre is also pretty, not scary at all! :D

And we made Rolled Sushi (Makizushi or Maki-Sushi) called "Eho-Maki" which brings happiness for us whom ate whole it as looking toward the years direction. (Sorry for my poor English...!!)

This year's direction was south-southeast, so we ate them as looked toward south-southeast.
We hope we will be able to be happy this year, especially hope to be in good health!

Sarah will finish soon, so please look forward to seeing her finished piece!

Take care and have a lovely day!
Thank you for your visit to my blog.

Sarah looks beautiful Yuko, and you are making such wonderful progress! I like your colors, and I would not change anything.

I like Sweetie's mask, and it looks like he is enjoying making Sushi!

I look forward to reading what you will stitch this year.

Your Sarah is coming along really nice. I was thiking about the same thing - making a list of what I'd like to stitch this year and putting on the side bar. Speaking of what I want to stitch, I'm already in a new trouble! lol Just joined SAL to stitch a reproduction sampler. Enjoy your time with your friends today. I'd love to see what everyone is stitching in your group :)

Sarah is looking so nice, and what fun that your stitching group is still going strong.

The Ogre mask is so well done - tell Sweetie he did good.

Have been away from the computer and finally getting caught up. YOu have done some nice stitching and received some wonderful gifts.

Happy New Year and have a nice weekend.

I love the colors and design for your Sarah Spurr. This finish is going to be lovely! The ogre mask, and the little ogre wearing it, are adorable!
