 The Roses started to Bloom today
Lots of buds on all of the bushes.

 I am in the process of setting up my
garden beds.  Lots of work
but the rewards will be amazing.

I hope everyone had a Blessed Easter.  It
was an amazing day here in TN.  The weather
was just perfect.  Spring is here and I just
adore this season.   I am going to San Diego
this week with my son.  Its my annual work
trip.  Please pray for safety and a smooth
trip.  I have not been on a flight since
my everything happened.  My left ear is still
messed up and I pray for no pain on the plane.

If you want more details on my pieces and what
purchases i have made, you can visit my
YouTube channel under

Flosstubers to watch:

Arlene- Cohen , She has some amazing
work and not only does she cross stitch,
she does other types of stitching.  Her work
is hard to put into words but its just
gorgeous.  Her channel name is Arlene Cohen.

Mary Rose at Stitchblisscorner, She teaches
history on cross stitch.   I have learned so much
from her videos.  

I hope eveyone has a blessed week.  
Happy Stitching.

I love your Spring displays! So pretty. You made some lovely ornaments for Christmas. Good luck with the garden construction work!

What a super trio of ornaments you created, Cindy! I love your displays and I really like the wrought iron display in your blog header and the wooden ironing board featured later in your post. Your are off to a good start with your garden construction. Have a safe flight and journey!

I hope you are having a super visit to San Diego, Cindy!! How nice that your son will be traveling with you :) I went for the first time in November and just loved it--the weather is so ideal that I fear that my son will never move back east...

Love your newest ornaments and your spring display--those sheep are just adorable :)

Good for you for tackling your garden yourself--you'll be rewarded with some lovely fresh veggies and flowers this summer! Love your FlossTube videos--you do a wonderful job. I don't watch many, but yours are great :)
