Hello and Happy Spring:
First of all thank-you for all your kind words and prayers about my Mothers passing, I really am grateful from the bottom of my heart.
I will send email thank-you's as soon as possible.
You all have touched my heart greatly, if not for Family Friends and of course my Friends here in Blog Land I would be a basket case.
Some stitching, you al by now know I like Brenda Gervais designs, heck I like all designs, but she is one of my top ten, I stitched this this week for some comfort, my Mother would not have wanted me to grieve so much (which is hard not to do) so I put myself into my favorite chair and stitched, I love this design, it will be a pin pillow after I sew an insert and add the crushed walnuts.
So sorry about the wrinkles, I just did not have the energy to run into the laundry room hook up the iron and iron this lovely piece.
This is my next project, I love this design, I have seen it in person it is much prettier then the photo. I am doing it on 32 instead of 36 count linen, only because I live 60 miles from Stitchville USA needlework shop, it will be just a little bit larger but not that much.
Next I have a question for you: Does anyone know what this design maybe from, I found this in the stash relocation pile last August and have this thing about unfinished projects, I found it this way with the it started in this pretty green.
Thank-you to Vickie for the email about the missing photo.
I want to tell you about a couple of new Bloggers that share the same Blog, it is Mary and RJ the link is http://stitchingfriendsforever2.blogspot.com
Stop over and say hello if you can, they did a couple of cute Bunny pillows that are adorable.
I need to get shopping for some 32, 36, and some specialty threads, I am running low.
Today it is gloomy only because of the rain, it has been raining and windy for almost 24 hours, Mike fertilized last Thursday and will be on his second mowing tomorrow if it does not stay cold and rainy, I like to mow but he will not let me, it was hard for him when he was recovering from surgery last summer I got to mow for almost three months, I loved it, we do not have a rider just a self propelled mower, we have a lot big enough for a rider but we still like to walk.
I am in my head planning my flowers this year, it is still too cold to put any out, I know that there are some that can handle the cold but I cannot, so it will wait.
It is noon and time for a fruit smoothy, yummy, I hope you all are well and having great progress in all your crafts.
