Just couldn't wait... had to have a new start... This is the March Word Play from Brenda Gervaise of With Thy Needle & Thread. The fabric is actually a light brown as I'm using 36ct R&R abecedarian.
I also did some other stitching...this one is from Rosewood Manor found in the 2011 issue of Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornaments..
...and this one is from a Dutch Treat Designs Tabletopper...this week should be less busy, so maybe I'll have a chance to get these finished up.
Other highlights of the week were: I was able to visit a bead store that I had not been to since 2010, found a few treasures at A.C Moore, had lunch with some dear friends - we exchanged some gifts - she made us some beautiful machine embroidered towels, some stash came in the mail from Kathy at Needle Delights . She is closing her shop and having quite a clearance sale. I'll try to post these treasures later this week.
I'll leave you with a few feathered friends that visited this week.
Redwing Blackbird...He was camera shy...
and an evening grosbeak
Have a wonderful day.
