Long Overdue Update

 Gosh, I can't believe the entire month of May has just flown by - I have had every intention of updating my blog - but I have kept putting it off - but here goes:

Above is Heart Note Alley complete through Part 10.  I am roughly halfway through.  The SAL ends in August - do you think I can finish it?
 Then here is Lavendar Blue -this piece is quite time consuming, but lovely, don't you think?
And here is my Flower Pot Sampler - stitched, but not finish-finished.  I stitched this at Celebrations using mystery HDF silk and some gorgeous PTP linen - such a fun, quick stitch.  
 This is project number 2 stitched at Celebrations - this is Sew Bunnies by iStitch, again using mystery HDF on PTP linen.
 And, for the finale, also stitched at Celebrations - this is Random Thoughts of Spring by Erika Michaels.  I shamelessly copied the color scheme from the Carolina Stitcher's blog.  I used mystery HDF and PTP linen.  I was pretty pleased to finish one project a day while at Celebrations!  I also got to spend some fun time with Carol S. and Marie P. and was able to reconnect with some lovely stitchers who had traveled all the way from Minnesota to attend Celebrations - such a great event!
Then, I finished my Spring SAL - I need to go in and insert some back stitching on the house features - in real life the features are subtle - but in the photo they are completely washed out.

So, now I'm off to stitch an ornament for an exchange and also to work on a couple of ornaments for my tree.   Happy stitching, everyone.
