Happy Easter

Wow, spring is officially here but it still feels like winter. Forecast is calling for more possible snow this evening. Oh well, at least the house is decorated for spring. Just finished "Eggs" by Shepherd's Bush and was very happy with the fabric kit for the hanging pillow. What is also fun to do is to get out the finished Easter projects from previous years. "Just Bee Yourself" is a cheerful design from SamSarah that is finished as a simple pillow and next is "CottonTail Heart" which is a design from Mosey'n Me that I had finished as a stand-up.
In the last two weeks I finished "Easter Parade" basket by Blackbird Designs and "Hunt" by Shepherd's Bush. Stay tuned for photos of the finished projects.
Recently someone gave me the idea of doing Christmas projects on the 25th of each month for a week. This way you can stay ahead of your Christmas projects and have great gift items for your friends. So, today is the 25th and I am signing off to work on a Christmas project.

Newbie Blogger


This is my first attempt at blogging. I am addicted to cross stitch and have many favorite designers. But at the top of my list is Blackbird Designs. To date I have completed six designs with many others at different phases. Here are couple of my favorites. These are from the Loose Feathers Designs. One is the Sweetheart Sampler and the other is Moon Garden. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.
