Spring has Arrived !

Yes, according to Tiger spring has finally arrived and she can look for rocks. I'm sure glad she wasn't trying to pick up the one in front of her. Yesterday and today have been gorgeous days, sunny and warm, I only hope it will last.

Last week I received this lovely pin keep from Aniza in Malaysia , as part of the Hooked on Exchange group. She choose a pattern from a favorite designer of mine, LHN, and stitched it 1 over 28ct.It is so tiny and delicate and I just LOVE it. Thanks Aniza.

I also received some stash in the mail and couldn't resist doing this one right up. Called Modern Bloom, it is an exclusive from Brittercup Designs and Stitches 'N Things. I'm a "little" disappointed in the Cinders floss, which should be red/black, I could see no red in it and it stitched up as black, but it is still a cute design. The floss minder I bought from Monique of Studio Twenty. It's just the cutest and I love it.

Earlier in the week I started a LHN Scissor Fob and then yesterday noticed some fabric that would be perfect for LHN My Needle's Work, so started that. I have a "few" others I'm working on, so am going to try a rotation system, which always fails for me, but will try anyways.

Thanks to all who come by to read my blog, I'm not very good at keeping things up to date, this is my first post for April and the month is already half over.

LOL! Tiger looks so cute! Brie loves to dip her head in the water to retreive things although her depth is not as deep as Tiger's ;o)

What a gorgeous pin keep and tiny!

I love Brittercup Designs and this is a lovely one :o) I can't wait to see what else you've been working on. At least you are stitching and have proof of it, that's why you're not Blogging! LOL!

Tiger looks to be having a wonderful time. While no snow here anymore, thankfully, it is still nowhere near warm enough for water play as yet.

What a lovely pinkeep you received, and very cute start on the Brittercup piece, their designs are such fun. Sounds like you have several fun projects going. Good luck with your rotation and I'll look forward to seeing picture of them all.

Came to your blog through Quaker Inspried. I've been trying to read all the posts to catch up. What a shame about Tiger's "accident" some months ago. But to see the pictures of him frolicing around is a good sign that he is 100% better. Our dog Bud was attacked by coyotes about a month ago and was a "plastic cone-head" for about 2 weeks. Luckily he is better (to the tune of over $300) and is enjoying the Spring weather here. I know the stress of high-cost Vet bills, but I would do or spend anything to make my pets feel well and not suffer. I, on the other hand, am quite the miser when it comes to health care (no insurance). Poor animals just don't understand why something hurts...people do and can wait for treatment....that is my theory.
