I have gotten some things done--
first over the last week end I did get the month of April's
counted cross stitch finished--
and now I have the first 4 months done--
I love all of these--
and there is 2 different colors of cloth that I used for these so far--
it's what I had on hand--
and they will be cut apart, for the idea of how I want to display them!!
So now on to May's and this week we got Junes pattern--so again I am 2 month's behind!!

And I got these 2 large blocks done for this months "in the garden" series--

I seemed to be in the purple mode this month--

And I got 4 of the Splendid Sampler blocks finished--
and I have 2 more of these started--
the rabbit one and the embroidery one--
so that leaves me '3' behind so far!!!

And I still got a couple B-day gifts in the mail this week--
My friend Anne from NY sent me this great Bird book--
and it is great--just love it--
along with a cute piece of fabric and a check for $25 --
Humm--wonder what I will buy with it????
and these little gifts are from a long time now, pen pal in PA--
Thanks Anne and Cindy!!

Well--I am off to see what kind of 'trouble' I can get in before I start dinner for the 'big' kids tonight!!
love and laughter, di


  1. April is a sweet spring cross stitch piece but I like the fox even more. I think because it isn't the usual thing you would expect to represent January.

  2. Lovely cross stitches and blocks Di...
    Fabulous birthday gifts too..

  3. You're cruisin' right along with your BOMs. I gave up on The Splendid Sampler early on. I just wasn't in the mood for fiddly little blocks. I do love the In the Garden BOM though. I am behind a couple blocks though.


I love visitor's---and I really love to read your comments--sooo don't forget to leave me one!!!!:-)
