Waiting For Spring!

I have had a cold for the last few days and have been feeling rotten and this little cutie came just in time to brighten my week-end! I won this from Sharlotte. Isn't it darling! I love the lace. Can't wait for Spring. We have over 70" of the white stuff and we are predicted to get about 12-18" over Tuesday and Wednesday. Really, enough is enough!
I pulled out Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow and finished the first square (which was 3/4 of the way done) and started the 2nd square. It's fun to do but it's so large that I will be doing other things in between the squares. It's done on 36 ct. Flax with VC silks. All the pic's are click able for a better view.

Another little finish for Spring. Spring Blooms by SB. The empty square will have a sheep button in it. It will be made into a pillow if I can ever get to the fabric store and then to Cheryl's. It won't be this week.
I thought that I would end with a picture of Sammi. She is on my lap because almost no stitching was getting done.
Thanks for all the great comments and for visiting my little piece of the world. Until next time keep warm and safe and...Happy Stitching
Deborah

Great work on your WIPs, and the rabbit ornament is adorable, I love the way its finished

Annie said...

Sorry you've been struck by the winter respiratory blues. But that bunny ornament would be a great pick-me-up for anyone.

At least you've been able to do some nice stitching on your WIP's. And it's nice that you have Sammi to comfort you.

Michele said...

Congratulations on your win! I can't even imagine all that snow!

Margaret said...

Feel better! And yes, enough snow already. We're getting ice this time too, which is worrisome. Beautiful finish! love the prize too! And your Autumn at HRH is looking good!

Jackie said...

I do hope you feel better soon! 70" of snow piled up is a lot. I always think it's pretty but realize it's another thing to live in it.

AaHRH looks great. I'm hoping to stitch this one day too. One day...

Hello,

What a cute bunny ornament! What a cute dog!

With most of my family in MA, I get lots of reports on the snow. I can't believe you guys are in for another storm this week. What a winter!!!

Stay warm, stay safe and feel better.

:-)

Beautiful job on your WIP's.

Laura said...

I love Sammi! I want to kiss her on her dear little head!

BrendaS said...

Cute little SB Spring piece. Your AaHRH is looking good too.

We're supposed to get a big storm here Tuesday/Wednesday too. I am so ready for Spring:)))

Jan said...

awww Deborah, sorry you have been under the weather, although I do adore that picture of Sammi on your lap. They love it when we can accomodate them, even though it usually requires attention not on something else. lol

Great progress on Autumn and I love the little SB soon to be pillow for Spring.

Melanie said...

The snow is rather crazy this winter, right?? There is another big storm coming this Wednesday and I have no IDEA where we are going to put it all. lol

Myra said...

I hope you feel better soon. I can't believe how much snow you guys have. I love the little SB finish and your HRH is looking great. Stay warm and dry!

Pumpkin said...

LOVE that ornie! That would brighten my day too ;o)

Your HRH is looking fantastic and you even managed to squeeze a finish in there even though you weren't feeling well! I hope you are feeling better soon though.

Katrina said...

Pretty stitchy pictures and what a sweet gift!!! Your puppy is darling too. Hope you are feeling better and stay warm :-).

Feel better soon, dear!

Sorry to hear you have been sick and all that snow doesn't help. Your spring stitching is just the bright spot we need!

Isn't Sharlotte a doll? Love the lace on that piece.
Sammi looks all warm and cozy there on your lap.

Great progress on Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow, and well done on your spring finish. I'm ready for spring here as well!

Bekca said...

That is so much snow! We haven't seen hardly any this winter, we've been lucky here in the UK. I love your Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow piece, it will look fantastic when it's finished. Happy stitching to you!

Pointed Stitcher said...

Nice gift that you received. Your Autumn of HRH is beautiful. I live in NH and I'm with you on the white stuff, we're getting pummeled.

Lois said...

Enjoyed seeing all your stitching pics. I see we are at about the same stage in AaHRH! Hope you are feeling better soon.

Sally said...

What a cute win from Sharlotte!

Lovely WIPs.

Hope you're feeling much better soon.

Suzanne said...

What a beautiful gift you received.

All that snow, I wish our weather would cool down, we are on the sixth day of temperatures above 104F and we need a cool break.

Love the progress of all your stitching and that photo of Sammi is so cute.
