Are we on week four already? Karen has been sick with bronchitis and she has still stitched about the same amount as I have. Am I going to slow?
I plan to spend some time this weekend on my piece. Karen has put some of the colors into hers. I am leaving mine until later.
How is yours coming along?
Doesn’t this sparkle!
It is pink opalescent glass. The picture just doesn’t show all of the color this has in it.
I thought it looked beautiful with a frog for scissors.
Pink seems to be one of the favorites here at the shop.
I’m sure this one won’t last long…
This fabulous kit is designed by Thea Gouverneur and is called of course
New York.
The stitch count is 300 x 500
The kit comes with 35 count linen, cotton thread that is pre separated onto an organizational card and of course you get a needle and chart.
The finished size is 17 1/4 x 28 1/2.
The cost is $160.00 for the complete kit by special order.
Isn’t this wonderful!
Now if you love Paris…
or London…
or Amsterdam….

One day it is warm and sunny, the next it snows…such is spring in Utah.
I planted our front pots this weekend, in the blustery wind and overcast skies, then in the afternoon it snowed. I’m glad the pansies enjoy this weather. The branches are from my crab apple tree at home. Do you think they will blossom? I think this adds some cheer out front, I hope the pansies start to show out the top of the pots as they grow….

This makes me want to stitch Lavender Pansies by Silver Lining.
