Happy Easter…a day late. We are back from San Antonio and had a fabulous time. I definitely needed the time away. I will fill you in on all the details of the trip when I have a chance to look at our photos and organize my thoughts. For now, though…here are a couple of old finishes that I thought I’d share since I hadn’t before. The first one (above) is from 2002. This is Happy Hoppy Easter from Lizzie Kate. The next one (below) is March Hare, a Limited Edition Whimzi from Just Nan that I stitched last year right around our wedding.
Here is my egg tree and glass bunnies. I need some more egg ornaments, but I like the idea of collecting them individually so that they are all different. I have three hand-painted glass eggs, a cloisonne egg, a paper mache egg, and a feather egg. I’ve been enjoying this little tree from February until now…so glad I purchased it! It is the same tree I had my Valentine Hearts on.
With a five hour or so drive each way to San Antonio, I did take stitching with me to do in the car. I’ve never stitched in the car, so I found it to be a little more difficult than I imagined. Every time I would count over or have my needle in the right hole, we’d hit a bump or something. So, I did almost completely finish my April sheep blanket. The only thing I didn’t finish was the French knots. I wasn’t confident I could do them in the car. So, I will finish that up today probably, and get the finishing done so that you can see it!
After I finished stitching on my sheep blanket, I switched over to my Mystery Sampler. I finished up the first motif and started on a second. By that time, I was losing my light, so I put it away. Today, at lunch I am off to the post office to mail my Biscornu exchange piece for the FGBB and my Just Nan RR. Happy Monday!
I am grateful for my amazing husband.
