Happy Spring to ya'! Yes, it's just the calendar that says it's Spring here... we're still waiting on the weather to notice the calendar? lol! We did have some heavy rains the last two days... and warmer temps arriving this week. So, the grass should start greening up and the flowers should start to poke their rested heads out of the soil... any... day... now... :-)
In the meantime, I've been stitching up some flowers! The first one is a Stacy Nash design. It was originally offered as a class project for Country Sampler's 2010 "Willows and Early Blooms". After the class was finished, there were a couple of kits leftover... so Country Sampler offered them for sale. I was SUPER excited to be able to buy one, as I loved the design... but, could not travel all the way to Spring Green, Wisconsin to attend the class.
The kit consisted of a fabric covered box with stitched design on the inside of the lid, a stitched drum pinkeep topped with a bundle of velvet carrots, and some fabric eggs...
I ran out of stuffing... that's why you don't see the fabric eggs in the picture... methinks it would be nicer if the Easter Bunny would place some chocolate eggs in the box on Easter morning... ;-)
And, I also had some fun stitching up some wool flower pinkeeps for the giveaway I had on St. Patrick's Day...
The design is from the freebie (with additional purchase) that Primitive Gatherings had offered in December.
And finally... if anyone is interested in purchasing some quilt kits, I have a few listed on eBay HERE. There are three Jan Patek kits all with the original fabric lines (which are difficult to find now)... one Primitive Gatherings design (includes Snowman Gatherings fabric and their hand dyed woolens)... and one Country Quilts Wool Applique design that was kitted (with flannels and hand dyed woolens) by Primitive Gatherings.
I still have two more cross stitch projects in progress... and then there's always the Tavern House Wool Quilt that I'm stitching along with Pam (no blog)... and of course, who can resist a few punchneedle pieces too? ;-) More pics of projects to coming soon!
Until next time... stay healthy & keep on smiling!
