Once again, thank you to everyone who visited my blog during the “Grow Your Blog” days. And a special thank you to all of you who have signed up to be followers of my blog. The winner of my giveaway for this special time is Barbara Lillian In France. A special thank you to you Barbara for participating. Please stop in to see her blog…her photos are LOVELY! I previous made one of these for a friend’s birthday…and I liked it so much I made another one for the giveaway. Hope you enjoy it Barb! My days have been filled with lots of diligent work on finishing my unfinished projects.
Here is one of my projects I managed to finish. It was so fun stitching one bird, that I made four of them! It is a Just Nan pattern called “Cardinal Tweet” and it is available from Inspired Needle in Lemont, IL. The pattern includes only the finishing materials for one bird. I had to create my own tails and beaks, and add extra beads to make four birds. Fun:(
My trapunto flowers are coming along, although I had hoped to have them all done. It goes fairly quickly, but I worked on other things instead!
Another favorite project I hope to finish soon is this one. I will not reveal the pattern until it is finished. Can anyone out there guess what it is?
Of course, much time was spent in helping my DH clear out our snow-filled walkways. Recently when a group of ladies were complaining about the terrible winter, one friend said, “I woke up this morning, and I am not in any pain…so I cannot complain about something so minor as the weather.” I whole-heartedly agree!
And so I let my beautiful African Violet inspire me. Just looking at it reminds me that Spring is just around the corner!
Congratulations Barb. Happy stitching to all. Amities, Averyclaire
