... makes me happy!
I had a lovely birthday weekend - thank you for your well wishes. The best present has to be the fact that we've had sunshine! Even if it was sometimes a bit overcast, it was dry and it was not windy (as in stormy). You could see it in people's faces and the spring in their steps!
My guys brought me some lovely orchids.
Miss Jane sent me a wonderful present!
Look at those wonderful scissors! And she had tied it with a lovely ribbon, and the card is so cute! Thank you so much, Jane! I love it! Such a treat!
I stitched a bit more on the Blackbird Designs sampler, which I keep referring to as the Honeysuckle Manor sampler because I can't remember the proper name!
At first I thought I would stitch the entire border, then do the pieces in the middle. But I caved in. Repeating the flowers just got a bit too monotonous for me! Variety is the spice of life, right? ;-)
Before I end this post, I want to send you here to see a really cute (and short) video. If you're a knitter you'll doubly love it. You can also see "the making of" as well.
I don't have much to say, so I will close now with a photo of this very shy tulip - isn't she cute? It's like she's curled up one petal like a hand over her face!
Thank you again for all your comments. I always enjoy reading them and they really make it worthwhile to keep blogging! Take care, my friends! Have a great week!
