Greetings from the Chicken Ottoman Empire! We are back home in Michigan and I am doing everything I can to ease back in to life up north! What does that mean? Why, starting a new cross stitch project of course!
This is an ooooold leaflet from Prairie Schooler (copyright 1994!) called Garden Samplers. I am working on the Birdhouse Sampler which is the one pictured in the center. Just what the stitchy doctor ordered for some spring stitching fun!
After a few "welcome home" flurries yesterday, the sun is shining today. The temps are still a little cool but we are working on hauling the chairs and loungers out to the deck and I am getting all my pots ready for planting soon. I am planning to re-do an area in front of the house for a flower garden so stay tuned for that adventure! I am not known for having a green thumb but I will give it my best shot and hopefully we will get to enjoy some pretty blooms!
(And for any squirrels who may be reading this, yes, I am planning to plant strawberries again and would be much obliged if you would not eat every single one of them like you did last year!)
