Updates and Spring???

Hi Gang!

       Well as much as I like winter I am done with it this year. It seems like it has been cold with a couple of inches of ice or snow but nothing big. I am tired of being cold and want to open my windows and hear the birds singing before it is time to complain about the heat lol.

      Friday was a beautiful 50 degree day, the birds were singing, I even opened my bedroom window for a while. Yesterday was freezing, windy and and last night the wind chills were down below zero. Oh Spring please hurry!!

     I think another reason I am waiting for Spring is the tempting pictures over on Carriage House Samplings blog of her new "Spring At Hawk Run Hollow". It is sooooo tempting!  I promised myself that I have to finish "Shores" first but then I think on to "Spring".

      Thanks to the stomach bug and last week's oral surgery I did get a lot of stitching done. I am still working on "The Wedding" and made a small amount of progress.

 The picture really doesn't do the colors justice. I can't find my camera and had to use my phone :(

     Then I spent all my time since surgery Thursday on "A Day At The Beach". I am looking forward to getting it done so I can get back to "Shores".  This is for my remodeled bathroom as I took the colors from this pattern.  

     I also signed up for auto delivery on Little Sheep Virtues  by Little House Needleworks. The first one "Hope" came this week. I just have to decide what fabric to use and how I want to finish them. It will take some thinking as there are 12 of them. Any ideas???

     Well I guess I should get some ironing done as I need clothes for work tomorrow. I hope you are all enjoying your stitching and I look forward hearing all about your projects!!
