My tulips are popping up all through the garden despite all that dry, cracked earth. Bring on some of those April showers and it won't be long before all those pretty flowers will be blowing in the breeze. Spring fever seemed to take hold of me this week and prompted me to start a new stitch.
Sweet Little Berries by Little House Needleworks is a kit which has been sitting in my stash for several months now. It came complete with fabric and floss but I've substituted a Silkweaver solo Jazlyn from my stash for the designated linen. I had a hard time finding a picture of this one online. I believe that this was a complimentary chart given out at retail shops if you purchased the required Crescent Colours floss. It's a fun design to stitch and I'm really enjoying it. My photo looks a little washed out though. Why is is so hard to get decent photos?
Sticking with the fruit theme, I finished Tra La La's Maison No. 4 today with it's lovely cherries.
The floss I needed to finish this one up was waiting for me in my mail yesterday so I didn't waste any time and started stitching that border. Here are the results.
This appears to be a series of some sort since there are several more of les Maisons available. Judy was asking me if I thought I'd do some of the others. Perhaps, at some point, but right now I have too many other things I want to get started at or finish. One of those includes Cast All Your Cares which is moving along quite nicely. I'll have a picture of that one for you on the next post.
As I sit here at my keyboard I can hear barking coming from my neighbour's dog across the street. He has spotted Clarisse sitting in the front window and I think he desperatly wants to meet her.
Nick is actually tied up in his back yard and has pretty well come to the end of his leash. He peers across the street from between the two houses and watches our front window for any sign of Clarisse. I cropped this picture so you could him a bit better so it's a little fuzzy but I was taking it from the dining room chair in my home across the street so I don't think it turned out all that badly. He's a real cutie! Thank you to all of you for taking part in my TOGA giveaway. It was a lot of fun and it won't be the last one. Thanks also for all of your wonderful comments on my stitching. I love hearing from each and every one of you. Hope your week is going exactly as you'd hoped it would.
