It's been quiet around the blog for the last few days. I got a little distracted as DH and I have an unexpected vacation coming up next week. So there were flights to be booked and things to prepare before we leave really early Monday morning. But a week of sunshine, walking, and great food is welcome right about now - we're going to Cabo San Lucas!
Spring has been lovely here the last couple of weeks and I've been feeling the SAD ebbing, but the last couple of days have been cloudy, windy, and today we have rain. Yes, we have rain the day after the irrigation water finally came on in our neighborhood. So ironic.
As for the stitching projects, well, I haven't gotten very far. On the robin from Buttoned Up Birdies, we have a slight bit of growth.
On Silk Threads, I've completed the Kreinik sparkly thread, and just have a few more beads to attach.
Since Silk Threads will be done soon, I've had to think ahead to the next UFO to work on, and I came up with Drawn Thread's The Cloister Garden.
Cloister Garden has been on the scroll frame for YEARS! And I love this design, why did I set it aside?? I found the threads in the bin-of-ancient-projects, but a couple silks were missing so an order had to be made to Nordic Needle for replacements. I'm not sure they're the same dye lot, but they look close and in a band sampler, a slight difference shouldn't bother me.
Well, that's all for now friends. It's Holy Week and we'll have Good Friday service tomorrow, egg dying with the grands is now planned for Saturday, and Easter celebrations including having the kids, maybe all of them, here for dinner - so grocery shopping must be done!
If I don't get back here before Sunday, have a blessed Easter weekend!
