Today I just wanted to show you my Easter Tree, I stitched these up last year, they are from the Cricket Collection, I am in love with them the Mother and Father have a stitched front and back.

I really enjoyed stitching this group of ornaments.

I also finished my third Up For A Challenge 15 I did rip out a few times and was going to throw it away, I am glad I did not, the Up For A Challenge gave me the encouregment to pick it up again.

I will work on my fourth Challenge work in progress later this week I am doing bookmarks for Stitchersvillage Literacy bookmark challenge, I am done with three of them and have three more to go (wish me luck).

Happy Easter

My Third Finish For The Up For A Challenge

I am so happy I have finished this lovely pattern, I used 28 count linen I am not sure of the type of fabric but it is very soft.

This is a By The Bay Needleart, Donna Bayliss she has such cute patterns to choose from I bought this last year and kept putting it aside I am so glad to have it framed, I used a barn wood for the frame, I think it really complements the picture.

I will start my fourth work in progress tomorrow.

I also wanted to add a picture of the lovely stuff that fell out of the sky today ( I Really do Hate Snow) my poor husband blew out the driveway part of the street so the mailman can get to the mail box tomorrow and our neighbors driveway also, what a great man he is.

I was so lucky I did not have to work today and I donot have to work tomorrow I am so happy to be home, the roads are still slippery in some spots glare ice.

Happy Easter to you all

I have not posted for so Long

I have not posted for so long I have pictures to show but am unable to do so at this time, I am sitting in a coffee shop really enjoying the awful weather that is going on outside, it is raining off and on sometimes hard others softly, we are going to get one last blast of snow tomorrow, I am south of Minneapolis about 50 miles, the Cannon River is nearing flooding stage, I am so sad for people that are effected by the floods, we who donot have this problem should Thank-God for our blessings.
I guess you could call this a TUSAL, I have been very busy I did finish a Donna Bayliss pattern and will have it framed this week, I just Love her work, I am also working on bookmarks for the literacy program that Patty over at StitchersVillage does every year this is my first to be involved, I do have two bookmarks done and working on one more I want to send her at least six bookmarks, I hope this has caught your attention and you are interested in getting involved.
I am stitching on a Blackbird Designs Exchange piece am going to work on this project today as I wait for Dr. Bobra in Northfield, at the Allina Clinic.
I forgot to mention that The Donna Bayliss project that I finished was one of the Up For A Challenge 15.
I am coming along fine I am not behind at all, I just need to get the bookmarks finished and start on my fourth up for a challenge project for those of you that are not familiar with this they are wips that I need to finish.
Well my coffee is getting down there and I need to refresh, Happy Easter to you all and please pray for good weather.

I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get rid of this slanted writing, anyone know how it just appears sometimes.

Blessings Catherine

Some finished items and some not so finished

Today was a great day to stitch again we have snow falling, yuck. I finished a work in progress that is on my list for the Up For A Challenge 15, this is my third finish.
I feel good because this is something I started a long time ago I did not use the fabric or threads required of the pattern I just want to get rid of some fabric stash,
this is Shepherds Bush Easter Parade.
I hope to finish a fourth work in progress for the UP For A Challenge 15
I hope you all are having great weather.
Peace to you.
