yellow fluff

When I was in JoAnn Fabrics the other day, I couldn't resist those darn little easter chicks for easter baskets. Every year they become cuter and cuter. Always brings back memories of when I was a kid. I used to love getting those little chicks.

So naturally I had to stitch one for the stitch along. This little guy was needle punched with one strand of Weeks hand dyed embroidery thread. I love the fluffiness of this little chick.

Hope you have a wonderfully day.

Stitching and Taking it Easy

Life is good when you can slow down and spend a few hours stitching.

Thistle head with a small bee. I have spring fever bad.
For Michigan this is early, but I am looking for dandelions next.
Enjoy your day.

New beginnings

Everything seems so fresh outside and the birds are busy building nests. I love this time of year. Our temps could get in the high 70's later this week, so hopefully, I will be able to get some interesting pics of our outdoor friends.

Did a little stitching over the weekend, more to come for the stitch along.

Saw this movie last night and it was very good.

Hope you all have a wonderful Monday.

You know how after you view your squares through a camera lens, especially when you really zoom in....well I see some areas that need a little help. So........ more stitching and more love.

Spring Stitching

I am caught up on my stitching for the stitch along group. Really loving it. I have a lot of ideas floating around in my head for other squares, but I must vacuum and go grocery shopping.
Hope you all are having a wonderful spring day.

Happy first day of Spring!

Yea! It is official.
Although it is cloudy, cold and a few snow flakes in the air, the birds are singing and the calendar says it is the first day of spring. I am happy.
Here are a few more squares for the stitch along.

Still Stitching

The sun is shinning, the windows are open and the birds are singing while I sit and stitch. Almost caught up.

Hope you are having a wonderful spring day.

I'm Stitching along.......

There is a lot of fun going on at inspire co. It is called 39 squares and Amy has even set up a blog for this fun project.

This is how she describes this fun stitch along....."To celebrate my birthday this month, I'm going to do a grid-style sampler with a square for each of my 39 years. I will do a square per day starting March 1 until April 8 and will post the squares here."

An inch a day is doable and the inspiration from the participants is very inspiring. Caution.... it is very contagious. My birthday sampler will have quite a few more squares than 39, but they are only an inch so I think I can handle this.

Here are a few of my squares.

Off to stitch, more to come.
