It's the weekend! And it looks like it will be a great one! Before I start on my list of errands, I thought I would update here.

First, pictures of little things from my life lately:

wild azaleas outside

and inside

wild violets

the ever hopeful Miss Kitty keeps an eye on the bird nest

I saw Joy's wonderful finish of Goode Huswife's One Seed For Another and it inspired me to pull out my chart and order supplies for it. I liked the fabric she chose, 40 count Vintage Pearled Barley and her conversion to NPI silks, which she shared. Here are the supplies:

NPI silks

and here is my start:

One Seed for Another
40 count Vintage Pearled Barley
NPI silks

I worked a little on Shores and finished outlining the first square and worked on the rocks. I'm still enjoying this design.

Shores of Hawk Run Hollow
40 count Antique Cotton & DMC

Remember cute little Mr. Carrot Nose on his spotted pony? Here he is now:

He apparently couldn't control his spotted pony whose head ended up being one square away from the tree trunk. Now they are both being removed and redone. Taking out this much of something I stitched would usually make me not want to finish the project, but I really like this design so I will keep working on it and will try to pay more attention to the count!

Today is a beautiful day and perfect for picking out annuals for the front porch and rummaging around in flea markets and antique stores. All of which I hope I to do.

That's it for now! I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Beautiful WIPs, Dona! Seeing your One Seed supplies made my mouth water. Loved the pic of Miss Kitty, too, and the flowers in & outside of your house. :) We just went to the garden center today, too. :) Enjoy your weekend!

Margaret said...

I love all your WIPs, Dona. Especially that BOAF design. Lovely! And I love all the flowers too!

Joy said...

Gorgeous springtime photos, Dona, and I always love the kitty shots. I love all of your WIP ~ I'm off to check my stash for that BOAF design..... Enjoy that One Seed for Another!

Love the springtime pictures, and that picture with the kitty is really precious - looks like it's really enjoying the sunshine. Great WIPs too! Love your progress on Shores and One Seed for Another. I saw Joy's finish and would like to do it sometime soon. Blogs are enabling! But your start looks fantastic. And I love the BBD design so far, but that's a shame that he tried to outrun his rider! Frogging is absolutely not fun!!

Love the 40 ct pearl barley linen.

Springtime has definitely has arrived.

Have a great week -- Roberta

I am so glad that spring has arrived for you. It reached 100 degrees today, so I guess we are now into summer. I love that BoaF design.

Hi Dona!

I love your progress photos! And Miss Kitty is just the sweetest thing! Btw, if you could send some of those gorgeous Azaleas my way, I'd sure appreciate it. I'm so envious!

Oh such beautiful photos! Your WIPs are looking great too - sorry to hear about you having to rip out though, that is never any fun!
