It's Spring...sort of

The weather has been all over the place here on the east coast.  We have had 70's one day and snow the next.  Last night was near 20.  I am hoping that the colors of spring jump out of hiding soon.  I have been busy with work, bike shop, house and the dreaded tax day deadline.  I have done some model stitching this month and enjoyed a few stitches for myself as well.

A quick pic of the back yard as the storm was clearing.  I love the contrast of the blue against white but don't be mistaken I don't like the snow.

I finished the box top to Shepherds Bush the Fold.   I may have already shared this but I love that the colors are so cheerful.

Worked on my Jackie Du Plessis Class project.  Queen M's Pomander.  Making progress, a bit slowly but progress is progress.

Added a roof to Ms Baxters House

A club kit finish.  Design by Heartstring Samplery.  Exclusive club kit for Ladies Prim Club provided by Dyeing to Stitch.  Gotta love those club kits.

I hope you enjoyed the photo walk.  
Happy Stitching!

Back to Blogging

I have noticed a trend in people heading back to blogging.  I love it!  I miss blogging but have found it difficult because the easiest place to blog is on my pc and I am rarely home to use it.  Life has been busy.  We now have chickens that we have added to the madness.  The hens are sweet but the roosters make me crazy.

I have been stitching on and off.  I am trying to work through my WIPs but get bored pretty quickly so I end up putting my stitching down.  Here is what is in rotation

Would love to know what you are working on.  Have you joined any SAL??  I haven't.  I have too many started so I am trying to work through them instead of starting new.  I finished stitching a Chessie club piece and Purple Thread class.  They are on the finishing table so I will post the final result soon.  Hope you have a wonderful day and Happy Stitching!
