It's Spring


Hey, Friends!

But does it feel like spring in your town?  I'm still seeing snow around on many blogs. Fairly typical for inland South Carolina - cold nights (20s – 30s) mild (50s – 60s) days.  The first weekend of official spring has started with this Saturday about 35` and rain with a forecast of 50s.

I finished With Thy Needle and Thread’s April Word Play.  I had seen a Fuzzy Bunny Tail  description and decided to give this little guy something different, too. 

And speaking of using your repertoire of specialty stitches, did you see Tommye’s grass on this Easter piece?  Brilliant!   Mary Corbet had an article about surface embroidery that I think could be a sweet touch to some fun cross stitched pieces. 

Thanks for stopping by, today and always.  I appreciate your thoughts and comments!

May 2013 be filled with Happy Stitching!

  1. Charlene, a nice touch of spring stitching in otherwise Springless weather! Pure depressing. But it'll be 95+ before we know it! Love , love those surface embroidery kits. I started stitching with embroidery..crude rather than crewel! Haha. But I've always loved it.

  2. Such a sweet finish!! Reminds me that it's Spring even though it doesn't feel like it. I did see Tommye's grass and I thought that it looked wonderful.

  7. Wonderful finish... I am happy for the rain to wash all of the pollen away! Not a big fan of "allergy" spring right now. Happy stitching...

  8. Beautiful finish, Charlene! I love all these little samplers but have yet to do one. I really like how you did his tail. Spring feels like it may never arrive in Michigan!

  9. Congrats on finishing the word play. I love that series. I keep thinking if I stitch Spring-y things it will convince Mother Nature to "straighten up". She doesn't appear to be listening. Take care!

  13. It sure doesn't feel like spring here - may even have sleet/freezing rain tomorrow morning. I love the fluffy bunny tail - so cute and adds so much dimension to the design.

  14. I just pulled the threads for this one myself, Charlene! Yours turned out so cute :) Love that fluffy tail--I will have to remember that idea!

    Yes, there is no sign of spring up our way--we had four more inches of snow Sunday night :( At least we had a two-hour delay for work--that is a first!!

    Wishing you and your family a Happy Easter!
