It has been gorgeous here the last few days. We are all really enjoying it! Today it has been in the 70's and on our morning walk Katie and I discovered some daffodils and grape hyacinths blooming. The trees are getting buds on them too. When I go out back, I hear all kinds of birds singing. Cardinals, robins, meadowlarks, chickadees and doves to name a few. All getting ready to start families for the year. The grass is even getting green in spots. On a day like today, it is hard to believe that exactly one year ago we had terrible tornadoes and storms come rolling through. What a difference a year can make.
Below is a chart Jack let me buy. It is from Rosewood Manor and called Dragonfly, Dragonfly and was marked down to $2.50 because she is trying to get rid of them. I don't believe she is going to reprint them. I have wanted it for a long time but didn't want to buy anything right now as we are getting ready to move. He insisted I buy it though so I wouldn't miss out on it. That is my Jack!
This is my progress on Life's Lesson Sampler that I am working on. I needed a small break from my fairy. It will have a border of morning glories (my faves!) and there will be flowers in the urn here. Above the urn is a heart with two colorful birds sitting on it. There is a house at the bottom with a picket fence. Towards the top is a place for my initials and year done. The uppercase alphabet is below the small ones. I wish I had a picture to show you what it will look like finished but it is long gone. Where I do not know! The finished size will be about 14 x 18 so it is fairly good sized. I am doing it on seaglass blue evenweave from Charles Craft. Have an awesome day ya all! That is all my news for now!
