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!!



  1. They both look great but for some strange reason I have fallen in love with purple and yours is beautiful.

  2. Don't you just love Beach? You are ready for winter to end?? But, we still have another month to go! lol
