Happy Soon To Be Spring (I hope)

Greetings to all the beautiful people in Blogland: Thank-you from my heart for hanging in there with me and all the health problems Mike is having and your Prayers and well wish's.

It has been a harsh winter here in our front yard we have three feet of snow, I hope and pray it does not all melt at the same time.

I have been working on fliers for our Church women's group for our Spring Luncheon, I have been stitching on hand towels for drawings, many of the women bring something they have made for the drawings, there is usually 350 people who come to the Spring Luncheon, for a small town that is a load of people. I would like to do eleven more before next Friday.

I have also been working on Strawberry Faire with Helen D she is on YouTube/Floss tube, I bought the pattern and fabric from Cobweb corner, both ladies are wonderful to watch.
 I have been using leftover silk threads from past projects, the colors are not the same but close (so sorry about the wrinkles) Mike is resting in the recliner, I do not want to bother him to get the iron.

I finished the Mill Hill Santa I just need to glue and back him, I did change a few colors I wanted a bit more blue in his hat 

I did mount the By The Bay 
, I love this Santa, he is so sweet.

I also worked on constructing the exclusive design from Traditional stitches a Jeanette Douglas design, I just need to construct the barrel. 

I have been looking for a good clear glue, I found it in the scrap booking section, it is amazing, you only need to use a little bit and it sticks, someone else told me about this stuff, I love it.

Well, its Thursday afternoon take the dogs out make a latte, relax and do some stitching, I hope all that are in the path of the bad weather in the south and southeast do not have tornados or heavy rains, please stay safe.

All work is cheerful and wintery - perfect for snowy days! Bless you for all the stitching you're doing for your church; that's devotion!

Beautiful stitching. Love all the tea towels.
I know it is still snowing in places. It has been pure spring here and I am soaking it up hoping it will last a long time before the intense heat of summer arrives .You have to snow when you have 3 feet of snow and I have warm that someone is going to get hit with some tornadoes. I think I stay in a constant of prayer in spring.

Love that exclusive design and also the berry. So sorry about the snow! We didn't even use the blower this year, highly unusual, but the nurse mentioned April is to be terrible. We'll see! Hope Mike is feeling well. You too!

You are busy but you do a lot of stitches.
It's amazing!😵

Congratulations on complimenting Mill Hill Santa.

Hand towels are also very nice. And I also like other cute designs.

May you and Michael have a good day.🙋

What lovely stitching again , your work is so beautiful.
Spring can't be far away now , we did sit outside yesterday with our coffee and it was a warm
sunny day , but we could be having snow next week ! I hope not.
Take care both have a good week hugs June.

Great stitchy projects.
I like your Strawberry Faire conversion.
We haven't had as much snow as you, but what we had has almost melted.
We've had temps in the 40's the last 2 days.
The waterfowl are confused, a lot of Geese came back when it got warm.
The temps go back & fort from warm to cold again.
Seems when the snow melts, we get more!
I'm tired of Winter, looking forward to Spring.

You've certainly been busy with your stitcheries! I love the wee Santas especially the Mill Hill one (not that I like beads or anything!)

Vickie said...

The hand towels are very nice Catherine.
What cute work you have completed. :)
I am praying for dear Mike.
Thank you for praying for me. I am having a very hard time breathing right now.

Lovely items for the drawing Catherine, your stitching and beadwork is lovely. I hope you enjoyed your late, spring is on it's way here too with our daffodils blooming

You've been busy! Sounds like a lot of snow too. I'm in Florida so any snow is totally foreign to me. The Jeannette Douglas design is adorable and so well done!

Oh, I wish I'm as talented as you are. But I think I don't have the patience as well. Lol
