march 21 - happy spring!

It doesn't look much like spring here yet...still rainy and dreary. The weatherguy did promise a dry day soon can only hope. I know this is the Pacific Northwest and it rains lots, but enough is enough!

My partner in the spring pincushion exchange received her parcel, so I can show what I stitched for her. I thought it was funny that we each chose to stitch the same design for one another! I forgot to include the threads I sent her in the photo! The design is Hello Spring from Lizzie Kate stitched on a very pale pink evenweave with DMC.

Our grandson spent the weekend with us, so very little stitching got done! We played lots of train games, and Saturday was a beautiful day (at least part of the time) so we got to spend some time outside. I guess I could stitch when he is involved in something else, but why would I want to stop looking at this face, even for a minute?

I did get to put a few stitches in late last night. Here is my progress on A Prairie Girl's Sampler from Midnight Stitching. I should have this one finished this week.

Thanks for your help with my questions. I think I have my email set up now so that I can answer comments (thanks Deb!) and I am trying Babs' suggestion about the fonts. I'm still doing something wrong...but one of these days I might get it!

Thanks for taking the time to visit!
