ready for Spring!

Oh, I am so ready for real Spring weather, aren't you? I thought I might try to entice the daffodils to bloom and the leaves to green by pulling out this cheerful Prairie Schooler sampler, Spring Has Come. It has the most cheerful colors...

I'm enjoying stitching on it in a cozy chair with a brand new stitching lamp which is currently changing my life! It's amazing what good light can do.

I hope your weekend is pleasant as only a stitcher's can be. ~ Rachel

Snow day finishing

I used my snow day today to do a little stitching and finishing! I seem to be stuck on the hanging pillow finish. :) Thanks to Tanya of The Sampler Girl for these lovely designs.
