Beautiful spring....

it's finally here. My flowers are growing and some are just starting to bloom. Give them another month of miracle grow and sunshine and they'll be spectacular. I'm slowly but surely getting the beds in shape for summer.

Also have to show off a beautiful gift I received. Made by Capella - it's Temari, absolutely stunning. She weaves and wraps the perle cotton threads where they look like strips of ribbon (it's a beautiful craft) with beautiful bead strings to match turquoise and lavendar and clear pink - with purple tear drops on the end. It sort of reminds me of my current stitching obsessions, Chatelaine's Taj Mahal. Check out the thumbnails to the right for an update picture.

Tomorrow is our official SAL start for Circus of Circles (Ink Circles). Here's my floss toss, HDFibers Dragon Tears silks with Silkweaver 32ct Belfast Linen in Purple Fog. I'll try for a better picture next update.
happy stitching everyone - and enjoy this gorgeous spring

Mira SAL

starts today - YAY. Stitching Queen Mermaid 1x2 on 32ct Mediterranean Linen and she looks gorgeous already. Sooz is a hard taskmaster so I better get a little more stitched before I post a picture.

happy stitching everyone......

Easter weekend........

I stitched on Morning Rose as my BAP-SAL pick for the Easter weekend. There's a updated thumbnail picture on the right sidebar. She has gorgeous wings but they are confetti hell to stitch....but worth the effort. I also received my new Ink Circles charts, the 20th Anniversary one and Second Chances (the purple sampler). YAY..... I also stitched a little freebie from Debbie Draper Designs, Spring Flowers for a flat-fold class that's this weekend. I'll post a picture once we get them finished out.

Have a great week everyone.....
