I can't belive it's already April! Where is the year going? I've had a rough week here. Won't bore you with the details, but hopefully things will soon be better. I sure hope so anyway.
I haven't stitched much either, but I did finally get Jill's ornament out & have Julianne's picked out & getting ready to pull the threads & cut the fabric after I finish this post. I'm waiting on Ray to decide if we are going to go listen to a friend play guitar for a bit this evening. He's playing at a resturant/bar here, and it's not our usual thing, so we'll see. Ray is hurting this evening too.... so it's all up to him! ;-) He has been busy building a new fountain for our courtyard and my brother came this a.m. to help him put it in place. He figures it weighs at least 600 lbs, but he did make the "surround" in 2 pieces, but it's still heavy. I'll take a pic of it when it's finished. It looks wonderful so far... can't wait until it's done!
This afternoon we went "shopping". (You have to know the town we live in for that to sound so funny, we have one dept. store & a super Wal-Mart. UGH!) Ray actually found some shorts he likes and we bought 5 pair and a couple of shirts too, and a hat...... Woohoo! If you had any idea how picky he is about clothes, you'd know why I'm so thrilled! :-) I got a pair of capri's, a pair of shorts & 2 shirts myself, ALL for around $30 (just for my stuff, his wasn't as cheap! lol). They had a fantastic sale & I had printed two coupons online before we left. We also found some Reebok Flip Flops that were $20 for $5.40 and we are planning to trip to the beach soon, so we went wild & bought those. ;-) I'm NOT a flip flop person, but hopefully they'll do the trick at the beach. Yesterday I bought some petunia's & a couple of other plants. Everything is starting to bloom like crazy & seems all of our plants & trees survived the winter. I'm thrilled to see them! With all the rain we've had this week, things are growing like crazy, esp. the weeds. The grass is going to have to be cut next week for the 2nd time this year, and it's only April...
Anyway, back to my stitching.... here is an update of the Lizzie Kate ABC Lessons. I haven't touched it in several days & have some other things to do before I get back to it. I like how it's turning out very much!
Next I have to share a wonderful gift that Karen SC brought me last Sat. when she, Nicole & Teresa came to stitch (we had a great time btw!). Look at these adorable cards she made! Aren't they the cutest? And of course they're in my fav colors too! I just love them. Thank you again Karen!! :-)
And last but not least, this is my new bunny! I just love rabbits... and this is one of my very favorites to date. I have quite a bit of Marjolein Bastin Nature's Sketchbook items that have always been found at Hallmark. I mostly have rabbits, bird/birdhouse & pansy items, lots of the ornaments, etc. Well, I just found out that Demdaco (who makes the Willow Tree that I also collect) is now producing a line by MB called Nature's Journey and this sweet little rabbit is by far my favorite!! It's not very big (about 4" tall & close to 4" wide) but it's really heavy. I hope she does lots more rabbits & birds.... just can't get enough, esp. when they're small & as cute as this one.
If you're still with me, thanks for stopping by. I hope to have more pics to share soon. Happy stitching!
