Seven Down, Five To Go!

The last stitch has been put in Block 9 and I am officially 7/12 of the way done now! Here is what it looks like so far...

I'm thinking of taking a short break from my Village and stitching something more seasonal now that spring seems to have finally sprung 'round these parts. This weekend may just call for some stash sorting fun!

Hey It's Good To Be Back Home Again

Phil and I made the journey back to Michigan safely and, as you can see from the above photo, the ice on the lake has melted and it's looking more and more like spring here. Hooray! One of the first things we did was refill the bird feeder and put out some pecans for our "pet" squirrel, Squirkle. I checked his dish earlier and all that's left is the shells so I imagine he's happy to have us home! Groceries have been bought, mail has been picked up, the laundry is underway, and I'm hoping to settle in for some stitching as soon as it's all folded and hung. I did not finish Block 9 (quelle surprise!) but there isn't much more to go. It's just a matter of sitting down and doing it!

The dryer is beeping so I better run before the wrinkles set in! Thanks for stopping by!

Opening Day Stitching

Texas lost, Detroit won, and I had a simply maaaah-velous afternoon working on Block 9! The verse is complete and I finished the border! Now it's on to all the horses, bees, and townsfolk! My needle is already threaded and I'm rarin' to go!
