Stash pictures

Happy Friday everyone! Here finally are the pics of my Birthday stash from April and an extra I just couldn't resist. I hope all the Moms have a great mother's day this weekend. No plans yet here but after church it is opening day for the Senior Blue Jays ! Yes my son is a Blue Jay this year.I think we are in for some cooler weather this weekend so it may be a winter coat game.
So to explain my stash. I just couldn't resist 'Shores of HRH' I love everything to do with the sea. After seeing' My Hometown 'on Siobhan's blog I caved and got that one too. 'Valentine Rose' by BBD, 'Together ' by Heart in Hand and the 'plum cottage sampler' couldn't resist that one either. And then there is 'Eiffel Quaker' by Jardin Prive. We are painting our dusty rose living room walls another colour to match our new leather sofa and loveseat that is on the brown tones. The colours in the 'Eiffel Quaker ' on the cover of the leaflet would be beautiful. Since I have a love of Paris it called out my name. As well, I have been drooling over the beautiful quaker designs out there. I got 'Lady's quaker 'awhile back and it is great.Not sure when you will see the starts on any of these but there's hope. So there we have it ! Off to enjoy Friday and hope to stitch a bit.

Stitching Bloggers Question

Lee at Lakestitcher has posed the question to all of the stitching bloggers , are you a process stitcher or a project stitcher. I would have to say I am a process stitcher as I have many WIPs
in progress. MANY!!!! some that haven't even hit this blog for their debut yet! And some that are so ancient they will be called dinosaurs! I enjoy perusing the new patterns, choosing the fiber and fabric and then unless the project is a gift , I am all gung ho till I find something else! I must say I am getting better since I started blogging . I really enjoy the whole stitching process.
In other parts of my life I would have to say that I do get projects finished and that is improving since blogging too as I am inspired by fellow bloggers finishes and want to be like them. Not just xstitch projects but household ones too. bday stash pics are coming soon!

A bit of progress

Well a bit of progress was made over the weekend on 'Lo' I was having a bit of 'thoughts of ripping' No not my clothes off silly! but the dark stitches of Pelican gray! However in this mornings beautiful light I felt that I could live with how it was transpiring. What do you think?
Our yard is coming to life with the most glorious buds. This is the earliest our french lilac has burst . I will be posting pics soon along with my birthday stash. This will be a shorty today .
I had a lovely day out last week with a fellow blogger Judy. She wrote some very kind comments on her blog about our outing and visit. She had some wonderful stitching to show me , as well as her lovely home . It was a great day out and we hope to get together again soon and do some stitching sometime. Enjoy the beautiful day.
until next time...
