Spring Serenade

We are having a glorious spring weather weekend and everywhere Cowboy and I walked yesterday, we could hear the sound of lawnmowers and smell fresh cut grass. We had quite a warm week with temperatures in the 80s but now it's dropped back to a more springlike temperature of mid 60s. I hope you are enjoying a lovely Mother's Day whereever you are.


I've got three project updates to show so it was quite the productive stitching weeken for me. The first is my completed H is for Horse from my CHS Alphabet piece. I have decided I'm going to keep this out and rotate it with CHS Dainty Housewren and my Stitcher's Wallet.


Thursday night I worked on my CHS Dainty Housewren as well as giving her some attention last night. She is really quite close to being completed and I think I will look in my fabric stash to see if I have a suitable backing fabric to finish this piece off. I have really enjoyed working on this but I will be glad when it's completed so that I may start something new!




And last but definitely not least is my progress on my Stitcher's Wallet. I completed the flowering vine motif down the right side and the crown and started working on the darker brown area under my initials. This project continues to be a joy to work on!


To all you mothers out there, I hope you are treated like queens today - you deserve it!
