Updates & Finishes :)

Good Morning All!
Well I know it has been a while but hear we go. Christmas City has finally begun to feel some tastes of spring. There are trees budding all over the place ahhhhh-choo! But they do look nice. Winter went on for way to long. We had a day a couple of weeks ago that hit 88 degrees but we are back to nights in the upper 30's and days in the upper 50's. A little cold for this time of the year but at least it is a step in the right direction. I think we will go right to heat when the time finally arrives and then I will complain about the heat. I perfer the cool weather. If it would stay around 70 all year round I might be comfortable lol. Not likely huh!?!?!

Well let's get to the updates:

I participated in a biscornu exchange on the forum. Here is the one I made (first one ever):

 The pattern is Biscornu #356 from the Floss Box using recommended colors and done on rose 14 count fiddler's cloth. For a first time I think it really came out nice. The pictures does not do justice to the colors.

And this is what I received from Minnie at All XXXs If you haven't checked out her blog please do she really does some wonderful stitching.

Now for my finishes:

A Day At the Beach

Little House Virtues Series Hope

Little House Virtues Series Love

And what I am working on:

Little House Virtues Series Peace

My Big Toe The Wedding

I am really hooked on Little House Needleworks patterns.  I am doing the entire Virtues series. I'm not sure how I will finish them but I am thinking of making a window topper out of them for the bedroom. We will see when I have them all. I also ordered her Hometown Holiday Series and I am so looking forward to stitching them. I also promised myself I would get back to work on Shores of Hawk Run Hollow. I love the new Spring of Hawk Run Hollow but I can NOT order the pattern until us finish Shores. (I must be good ... I must be good ... I must be good...)

We opened our camper last weekend so I am hoping to get some serious relaxing and stitching done this summer. 

Thank you for hanging in there with me! I will keep trying to do better (I can't do much worse at this blogging thing can I lol)

Until til the next time...
