Correction... again...

Well, you can't blame me... The 'Littles' designs I am stitching are by Hands to Work!! Tracy Riffle is the designer of these cute little pillows... It is an older pattern, hard to find. I have liked it forever and found it online recently--a must have! I DO love Hands on Designs patterns too... and hope to be getting some soon! Cathy has been cranking out a whole lot of really cute small designs I want to stitch!

Hugs,

'Tis Spring... right???

I know the calendar says it is Spring, but today it is 48 degrees outside, cloudy and dreary... after being rainy yesterday (which I am thankful for, cause our grass is in need of watering!!)... I prefer warmer, sunny days! I am pretty much OVER being chilly! Hmpf!!

I have gotten a little done...



Here is what I did with the Pepsi logo stitch. My husband loves it! Phew! He has it hanging on his lamp by his recliner.



I just glued scrapbook paper to the back to cover it...



I am nearly done with one of the three 'Littles' by Hands on Designs. They are so adorable. I am using a piece of 40-count linen, and mostly the recommended threads...



And while I was perusing the internet, reading blogs and such, I came across this really pretty little design by Maryse Dupont, called 'Spring is in the Air' --had to have it, to convince myself it is Spring!



My progress as of last night! It is a quick stitch... and the TRUE colors are so sweet and soft...crappy weather makes ugly snapshots of fabric and colors... sorry!

I am gearing up to do some more finishing... I think it out as to what I want the outcome to be, then begin gathering supplies, then pick a day to dive in! I have three projects lined up this session... but for my next post! Meanwhile, here is a piece I finished for my stitching buddy Darlene... She really liked it, and I do too!



Front...



The back... love the fabric, works perfectly for this piece I think... and a nice cream chenille around the entire piece just cinches it...



With a little fussiness on top...

That's it for now!

(oh, I posted on my birding blog today also!)
