Happy Easter

 Happy Easter to everyone.
I finished this piece today.  Prairie Schooler
Book 108.  Farm Fresh.  Done on white
line.  This piece really made me smile.
I enjoyed stitching this bunny.  I did not
add the whiskers, it didnt look right to me.
The fabric and flower ribbon really 
bring this piece together.  So happy
it was finished before Easter.
On Sunday, I went for my walk to a
beautiful area called Cherokee Blvd.
Gorgeous homes and a great display
of all kinds of flowers.  Pansies are
one of my favorites.  The tulips are in full
bloom.  I do 3-5 mile walks at this
 beautiful park all the time.  So glad
the nice weather is back.  I want
to wish everyone a blessed Easter.
Jesus died for all of our sins,  one
day he is coming back, oh glorious
day.

2nd Block of Hawk run Hollow done.



 The second block of spring at Hawk run Hollow
is done.  I have really enjoyed doing this block.
The lambs are just adorable.  The rainbow
is so pretty.  Below is Strawberry french
toast that I made.  The bread was bought,
a natural cinnamon swirl baked fresh with
no additives.  I made fresh whipped cream.
Warm maple syrup and fresh strawberries.
It was delicious.  I don't remember the last
time I had french toast, several years.  This
was a great treat.  Happy stitching everyone.

Easter bunny stitch





This is a special Bunny ornament that I
stitched for my friend peggy.  This was 
done on a sparkle linen.  The carrots I 
made out of fimo clay.  The heart
button on the back is from Just Another
button company.   
In the picture are some of the women from
my stitching group.  From the left Darlene,
Peggy, Me(Cindy), and Carolyn.  
Peggy is a sweet, kind person, when we
get together we all laugh so much.  Please
say some prayers for peggy.  I know that
are a lot of praying stitchers out there.  
Peggy is fighting a disease that affects so
many people.  
Carolyn on the far right is 80 years young.
She made me laugh so much today.  You 
would never guess her age if you met her.
Darlene on the far left actually designs
some cross stitch patterns.  I will have
to post more information on her in the
future.  She also is  so kind and very
interesting.
I am so blessed to have such a great
stitching group.  I hope Spring is here
to stay.

A second post for today but this piece is so cute. Lizzie Kate

 This pattern is by lizzie Kate
June Flip it
It's amazing how finishing can
change a stitching piece.  Next
are a bunch of ways to think of a
rainbow and it's bound to make
you smile.  I would love the car.
The house looks so cool.








A Watercolor by Terry McCoy

 One of the ladies I stitch with does water
color also.  This is a painting she did
of her dog.  This will be her
christmas card for this year.  She is
working on a cross stitch piece for over 4
years.  She is almost done.  I can't wait
to share it with you.
Some more Easter Decorations.

First block completed on Spring at Hawk run Hollow plus some more Easter



 It couldn't be better timing.  I think we all
need Spring.  I finished the first block.
The winter is Past.  Yahhhh.
How cute is the Squirrel and the birds.
This block took longer then I thought
but a lot of different colors and detail.



 Some more Easter Decorations.
I have an Easter Pig.  He is so cute.


I finished a small ornament.  I finished
it for someone who sews and loves the
color purple.  I really like this piece.
Lots of free patterns at this blog click here.

I have started to decorate the house for

surprised how many spring pieces I 
have.  The house is looking like
spring.  Spring ahead an hour tonight.
I will be posting more easter decorations 
soon.  Happy stitching.
