Happy First Day of Spring

Well, technically it happened around 10:24 last night .. how silly is that ... so happy first full day of Spring! Hope all your daffodils are blooming and making you smile.

Please say Hi to Rosy .. she's a design by Bent Creek and is a lot of fun to stitch .. hopefully she'll have a head soon! lol


Here's my progress on Good Morning .. I really love this design .. can't believe it took me sooo long to start it!


Here's a little Easter fun to share with you .. this has to be one of my all time favorite designs. The designer is Ewe, Eye and Friends and it's called Long Legged Chick. He made me smile when I first saw the chart, made me smile as I was stitching him, and keeps making me smile every year I display him. I stitched him in 2004.


Is everyone ready for Easter and the Easter Bunny? I remember growing up and going with mom to find that perfect Easter outfit .. all the frills and lace and springy colors. I still love going and getting something new for Easter, even though our holidays have gotten more informal every year .. it's still nice to have that perfect Easter blouse.

I'm grateful for spring colors

Both Rosie and Good Morning look great, Michele! And your yearly Easter ornament is delightful. :)

I would love to re-create the Easters of my childhood, but I seem to fall short every year. I don't know how my mother did it .... But the kids are happy, even if I feel I haven't quite managed to 'pull it off'. ;)

How sweet is that little long legged egg? CUTE!!!

My girls have their Easter lace and frills all at the ready, the boys don't care much what they wear to church, so they just got new golf shirts. And Mom doesn't know what she'll wear and Dad...he's like the boys and doesn't give 0.02 what he'll wear either! LOL!

Happy Spring and Happy almost-Easter to you, Marcie!

I do so love your holiday decorating. :)

Thanks for the story about holiday dress shopping. Makes me think of going with my mom. I don't remember dress shopping (because mom sewed such fantastic things that I never wanted store-bought dresses) but once I got a cute little hat and tiny woven straw purse for Easter church. I think they're at the foot of the bed here wating to be packed up and stuck in storage. :)

Nice progress, and your long-legged chick is adorable. I enjoyed your St. Pat's Day display, what fun. I don't have much that I've done for this holiday, but I recently saw Holiday Round St. Patrick's Day by Stitchworks and I think I need to do that one.
