Weekend Reflections

I enjoyed a nice sunny weekend.
I hope you all had a great weekend as well!

Another embroidered kitchen towel was completed.
I really like the way this little sugar bowl turned out.

This weekend I spent a lot of my time outside in the garden.
I was busy cleaning out flower beds.
While I was outside working away,
I saw my first bee and a beautiful butterfly.

Every evening the wild rabbits came out of the woods to the edge of my lawn 
and ate their fill of grass.  
Their coats are now a mix of white and a very light shade of brown, and they
blend in perfectly with the grass which is still straw colored.

The pussy willows are now out in full swing,
and I'm so excited that
our long winter is 
finally over.

Inside Easter tree decorations
are a reminder
that Easter 
is fast approaching.

Paper bunnies and chicks
hang next to beautiful eggs.

I hope you all have a wonderful 
Be Safe!!!

  10. The embroidery is wonderful! It is so vintage in feel, and so beautifully stitched.Do you use a pattern or do you just make up the design?
    I'm so happy for you Chris,that you are finally able to enjoy some spring days - I always felt guilty when I read yours and Heidi's blogs and comments on mine when I've posted lots of spring garden photos and gone on about how warm and springlike it is whilst you still had snow, although I hope that it helped cheer you.
    Love all the Easter decs!
