This is a housewarming gift for my friend Pam so I'd like to get it completed fairly soon.
This is the only thing that I've stitched on during the past week. The springlike weather earlier in the week got me on to some spring cleaning especially since I knew we were having a house full of guests this past weekend. We hosted a potluck dinner for one of Bob's choirs and about 25-30 attended. Clarisse loves it when we have people over! She acts as hostess and greets everyone at the door. Mind you, she got a bit lazy at one point and in typical Ragdoll fashion flopped down at the top of the stairs to watch the proceedings from there.
She was a big hit and there were many who would have liked to take her home with them!
My Wednesday afternoon craft group are really getting into preparing for spring and Easter's arrival. These are some of the projects they're currently working on.

Thea is our master of applique and I swear she churns out 1-2 new pieces each week.
I allowed myself to place a small order following the Needlework Market to purchase a couple of the new releases. I also included a couple of recently released charts.
I'm a huge fan of both of these designers and can hardly wait to get started on one of these new additions. Aren't they lovely?
The school winter breaks in our area have come to an end and the kids returned to school just in time for our latest snowstorm. We are supposed to receive 15-20 cm of snow today but it's currently stopped and we only have about 8 cm on the ground. I'm not disappointed though. I've had my fill of winter and can hardly wait to see green grass once more. I'll leave you with a pic of my grandchildren celebrating their school break. They thought perhaps a swim at the local pool would be a great change of pace from toboganning.
