Welcome, Spring!




Goodness, it has been far too long since I've posted an update. Life has been busy indeed! This is a short little post to show you some pictures of my last finish and progress pics of the two I am working on right now. I haven't had a lot of time for stitching in the last month but I am still enjoying these pieces little by little. I am working on Birdsong II by Prairie Schooler (sorry for the crooked scan!) and Quaker House Samplers by Carriage House Samplings. I also finished up Schoolgirl Lessons by LHN.

It is still cold in Philly but SPRING is definitely on the way. I hope everyone has some special plans for Easter. We have our sister in town and are looking forward to going to a Frida Kahlo exhibit tomorrow at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I'll be back soon with some updates about my husband's grad school plans...

I just came across your blog through the With Needle and Thread blog and had to tell you how much I enjoyed it. I especially liked the pictures on the right side, they look like paintings, very nice touch. Your finishing looks lovely. Have a nice Easter!

I've been reading your DH's school updates on your other blog. So glad you have choices, it must be a huge decision.

Hi Rachel ~ I love your spring stitching! I just spent this morning catching up on blogs, so visited with your Vox Vendsel blog, too. It sounds like things are coming together with grad school decisions :)
