Great Read

I read this book in 2 days. Wow. It is wonderful. If you loved the HELP you will love this book. It is a Southern charmer. The characters are rich and fascinating. You will laugh and cry with this wonderful, hard-to-put down book.

Now I don't have a book to read, any suggestions?

I have finally finished my squares for the stitch along which is a good thing as the weather is too irresistible to stay inside. This was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed it.
Learned a lot of new stitches and it was so much fun seeing all the other talented artists.
Now I am going for a walk with Heidi who is begging to go outside.

I have been eyeing up these beauties as something to keep my hands busy while watching baseball games.

Lazy Saturday afternoon

Pattern taken from a fabulous Japanese book I found yesterday.

I found this little gem yesterday on my day out in Metamora which is a tiny little village.

Hope you are having a wonderful lazy Saturday afternoon.
After getting some inspiration from a wonderful stitching studio I found yesterday, I am ready to stitch again. I found lots of treasures and the sweetest little Japanese embroidery book. I wish I could tell you the name of it, but it is in Japanese. I am so excited about this little book and I will be do some stitching from it for my stitch along.
My sampler will have a few more squares than 39. Not sure how many squares yet and I am not sure how I will finish it. It will come to me.

After a fun afternoon of stitching, I am going to sit back with a cup of green tea.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Time to get moving

Well it has finally stopped raining and it is time to get moving. Outdoors that is.
Maybe even fly a kite.

I have a few more squares to do in my sampler. It has been a fun venture and one I have enjoyed very much.

I am looking ahead to my next project.

Tea Time

It is a very rainy, cloudy day but a good cup of tea and with my stitching in my lap, the clouds will disappear.

Happy Easter

Enjoying Easter with my family. We are having so much fun with the family. The kids had a fun Easter egg hunt early this morning. It was so much fun watching the kids running around looking for clues in their Easter eggs. Lots of Easter goodness.

Hope you are having a wonderful Easter.

A field of dandelions is so me. I know, lots of people don't like the little yellow stinkers.... including some of my young grandchildren. Every year we run around the yard, some are protecting the dandelions and others are plucking. We always end of up laughing so it is quite fun, especially when you have new light-up shoes just for stomping.

Thinking ahead

The buds are popping out on our lilac tree,
grass is turning green,
before you know it,
we will be hunting for morel mushrooms.
I do love this time of the year.

Chocolate Bunny Ears

Do you remember those chocolate bunnies at Easter?

For me the ears were always the best.

Went Easter bunny shopping yesterday. It was fun but wow, the shelves are pretty empty.

There were still those cute chocolate Easter bunnies thank goodness.

So for the stitch along, had to do chocolate bunny ears.

Now, if I could just eat a chocolate nose, I would be happy.

Have a fun day.
