Stitching and water

I thought you would like to see the curtains I made. I have the same thing in the area of the kitchen where the table sets. I like them because they are so cheerful. I have the red gingham on the kitchen door.
Here is Jack's chickens. Mrs. chicken is done I do believe. I haven't done any cross stitching this past week. You know how that goes sometimes.
We went to Nevada Thursday and one of the many creeks we cross was out of it's banks. No big surprise with all the rain we've had. Before they moved the road a little south and elevated the bridge, it used to flood it quite a bit. I couldn't believe it yesterday when I was walking Katie that it was spitting snow! LOL! What strange weather we are having. I am sure ready for sunshine!


So that is our little visit for Sunday. I hope you are blessed this coming week.

Your curtains are lovely, Michelle, and Jack's chicken is nice. Glad he is enjoying his stitches. So wonderful to have a husband to stitch along with. And thanks for taking us along the ride. Lovely photos. Hope you have a blessed week!

Jack's latest project is wonderful...both of you do such beautiful work!!

The weather certainly has been weird lately...we got so much snow on Friday and Saturday but thankfully it's now starting to melt again!! Can't wait for Spring to arrive here! xox

Hi. Didn't realize it is still raining up at your place. Interestingly, at home it has rained a lot, but here 200 miles south it's been dry as a bone.

Love the cherry curtains! And Jack's chicken!

I'm busy making curtains for my mom. Hopefully they'll look pretty and make her feel cozy in her new little home.

Yours ARE bright and cheerful. I need some ideas for mine. I have a ton of windows in the kitchen and the curtains are ancient and faded...

Sharon said...

Prety curtains Michelle! Great pictures.

Vonna said...

Good Afternoon Michelle,

I love your beautiful curtains...they are cheerful...and remind me of a set my gandmother had back in the seventies. - Good memories-

Wow...Jack's chicken looks great...he has put a lot of work in this piece.

I am so glad that you two didn't have to deal with the flooding in your neighborhood. We have had crazy weather too.

Have a day filled with many blessings my sweet friend!

Your "happy curtains" match my preferences exactly. Cheerful and warm, making a house a home!

Stellar job of it, that!

Your curtains turned out cute. It's been sunny and in the 70's for the past 2 days here. Short lived, though. It's supposed to rain again. Our fields and creeks are flooded, too. :(
