I hope everyone had a lovely Easter weekend. Here we've had a mix bag of weather. Right now it's sunny so I've forgotten all about the rain already!
I will start off with the April Shelf:
All four of the pin pillows are made by me and they are Blackbird Designs. The sweet little bunny up front was made by Anna (Ana?) in Poland. Sadly we lost touch. It's been a few years since she moved and I think her blog was closed down. I have found that has happened to me with blogging friends. "Life happens", I know, and changes can hit you in real life that doesn't translate to the blogging world.
This next small is Caged Bird by Carriage House Samplings. I think I might spiff up the finishing a bit should/when I find the right trims.
Many of you know Carol of the lovely blog, Stitching Dreams. If you know Carol, you will also know it was a big birthday for her this past January. So I wanted to give her a nice gift but I warned Carol that it would take me awhile…
Good morning. It's a rainy Monday morning here. The weather (what else do we talk about?) has been very windy, even stormy at times lately. We even had some hail in parts of the city! When I go outside I have to double check what weather to dress for! How about you?
Here's my start on a new sampler. Can you guess what design it is?
Well, back at Nashville Market, my eyes were caught on this sampler.
It's called Bird Song. I remembered looking at it and thinking it looked awfully familiar and that's because it reminded me of this beautiful antique sampler I saw a few years ago! I had loved this antique sampler from afar and thought to myself "maybe I can chart it one day" ...ha ha ha. So I was really pleased to see the Bird Song chart. This will be my summer project. I am not stitching so much these days because of all my sewing projects and I also need to go slowly because of my neck issues.
The garden is in bloom. Here are a group of "pinks".
