SAL And Some Beading

Soon very soon it will be spring which brings beautiful flowers and green trees, I am excited, sounds kind of silly for a 65 year old woman getting excited about spring but it always smell so fresh and looks so clean when the colors are blooming, today it is snowing, I am not sure how much snow we will get I hope very little.
I was invited to a stitch-in at Lynn's home, I had such a great time, she made the greatest tasting soup yummy is what my tummy was saying, everyone brought something to eat, I made strawberry trifle it was so good, we stitched and had a wonderful time, these are some of the girls from the October and February  retreats which are no more. :( sad me.

I stitched a small Sheep and Tree for the SAL over at http://stitchinglotus.ca I am trying to do an ornament a month so I have 12 new ornaments for our tree next Christmas.
 I missed the post only because I was out of town with Michael he had a business trip and I went with and stitched and beaded when he  was out visiting police departments and sheriffs departments, and other places he had to go.







This is what I did when he was gone



I like Tammy Blacks Designs, they are so primitive looking, I just need to stitch the back side and assemble.


I also started working on some braded ornaments for a retreat that is coming up in April, some of the girls trade  gift bags, I am one of them,   I wanted to make something special, I only need to make 10 more wish me luck.


Mike has Adoration this evening and I will stitch while he is gone, and have a margarita  it is margarita Friday here in the Laurent home.




Well its still snowing and I need to get to the laundry.
Thank-you for all your lovely comments on my last post, I am so sorry if I did not send individual thank-you, from my heart to your thank-you again.


I am not sure why my letters started to slant but so be it.

Blessings
Catherine

Your blog header makes me laugh every time I see it. :) And I don't think it sounds silly at all to be excited about spring! You've accomplished some lovely stitching and I love your braided ornaments! Do you know how long I have been craving a margarita? :)

I'm 61 and look forward to spring each and every year, Catherine! And to know that we'll get an extra hour of daylight in the evenings when the clocks change next weekend has me smiling from ear to ear! Lovely stitching and beading and I love the Margarita Friday tradition :)

I am late coming to this post, but thanks for the mention of Tammy Blacks Designs. They are new to me so I went looking around they are very pretty. I may have to get at least one of them. I hope your snow is gone and the Spring weather is visiting you. I get excited about Spring too, then again I look forward to each season as it arrives.
