Snow and Stitching

Thank-you to all my faithful followers, thank-you from my heart for your lovely comments.

I have done some stitching, some spring cleaning, and lots of not so happy moments this weekend, we has six plus inch's of snow I say six Michael says plus, I long to sit out on the front porch with my coffee and book, we had two days of 80 degrees last week melted the five feet of snow on the lawn.

Now for some stitching, I have been a little busy working on the  Swan Anniversary of the Heart from Blackbird designs, I hope to have it finished tonight.

I also did some constructions on a few items first is A Study In Blue
I love this design and the finishing, I worked on it in 2022 and finished stitching in November 

I used a bunch of leftover Weeks threads with some Gentle Arts Thread colors I stitched this and finished

The Biscornu is small enough to use on my pinking shears

I really like this design and finish I stitched and finished in February 2023 

I also finished a Kitty and me design, into an ornament, it was a freebie from Pamela at
I finished stitching this in February 2023 

The next finish is a Brenda Gervais Easter Parade, I stitched some time back
I am not sure of the fabric on the bottom, I think I should have done a different print
I really love the design, the ribbons are from an Etsy site MyScrapCabinShop, she has so many beautiful colors to choose from you can buy in sets or individual, they are long pieces
I stitched this way back in March 2019, I am so slow at constructing, I have a pile of about 50 items that need constructing

This is my next project, I did this into a pillow many years ago, I will make this one a triangle tree, Liz Mathews (who is Kathy Barricks daughter has some tree designs in standing triangles

Its time for another latte and some reading have a wonderful day
Please Pray that the crime in the USA stops, its so sad how many lives are lost due to crime by gun knife and other means
Have a wonderful stitching week

Oh Catherine. Bummer! I know some states have been white for months and just when you think it's over, bam! Soon it will be the end. I so want a porch, and your deck looks huge with a private beautiful view. Very nice. Lots of blues in your stichery and all lovely. Hope you and Mike are doing well.

Thank you for your comments, I can't reply and most everyone's are going to a spam folder. I need a workable program!!

Great projects Catherine!
I too have many pieces to finish.
We had 80's all week last week, it felt good to get out & clean up.
Woke up to an inch of snow on Monday, & also today.
Our neighbors, who winter in FL, are coming home snow.
Have a great week!

O Catherine, just love your beautiful work in blue. So sorry the snow
will just not let go and allow you to really get outdoors. Let us hope in
no time you will be sitting on that deck and enjoying the sunshine. There
is always latte to get you through the day.

Spring just doesn't want to stay this year it seems. We had temps that broke heat records last week and now it's back to really cold and snow flurries. Enough already!!
You've been busy completing so many pretty things.
