Happy Spring!

Lots of Spring stitching going on in this house, but only one that I can show you, the others are for some Spring Exchanges that I'll share once they arrive at their new homes.

I finished Peep a couple of weekends ago ... what a fun stitch! I can't wait to finish him.

This sweet pin cushion arrived over the weekend from Diane. Isn't it clever and cute! I might have to steal this idea ... hope you don't mind Juan :)
I started Yule Sampler in December but had put it down to stitch on other things. When Lisa of Primitive Needle lost her life on March 1st I decided I would finish it in honor of her. There's a Facebook group that was created so we could share our stitching in memory of Lisa. Most everyone was stitching a Halloween piece since that was one of Lisa's favorite holiday was Halloween. Now to get it framed.

Can't believe it's almost April! Are you getting lots of Spring stitching done? What Spring stitching are you doing? Well, it's time for Castle ... we just started watching it. Great fun series!

I hope you find your Joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for Spring ...

Both of your finishes are gorgeous. The more I see of Peep the more I think it will go on my wishlist. Look forward to how you finish it. Yule Sampler is gorgeous too. Lovely gift received.

Love Peep! So cute and colourful!

Yule Sampler is gorgeous. I haven't picked up my piece for the Spooky SAL in a while as I can't read the chart very well. I need to see if I can get a better print out.

Peep is so cute and cheerful, and I love your Yule sampler! I agree the pincushion is very clever - such a nice gift.

I love both finishes, Michele! So cute! And your Yule Sampler is a wonderful way to honor Lisa's memory.

I tend to stitch seasonally and at this point, my stitching is the only thing that looks like spring at all here in Pennsylvania. This is the coldest spring I can remember :)

Peep is so cheerful - a wonderful reminder that spring is here (now if it would only act like it). Yule Sampler is a lovely way to honor Lisa's memory.

I tend to start holiday pieces right after the holiday in question. And sadly not much stitching going on these days...
