Easter SAL & looks like Spring is on it's way...

Received the third part of the Easter SAL from Carole last weekend and started it right away...can you see my mojo is back. In between baking, promised to make appeltart for MIL's birthday last sunday and going out for a walk...while Chris on the mainland for his football match and Grace doing her homework....this is quite a pretty quick stitch. ((all pics can be enlarge))

Such a cute design that i started another one and finished off as an ornament or can be use as a scissor fob.

Thanks so much Carole for sharing your design. I am really enjoying stitching each part and looking forward for the next...


I haven't had my camera with me when i saw these, about 45 minutes walk from our house, so went home and took the car since i had to pick up Chris anyway and i can stopped at the place and took some pictures. Aren't they lovely!!!


After picking up Chris we pass by through the woods, (another area where the snowdrops are), were the crocuses are from my previous post.

I hope everyone is having a good week. Thank you so much for stopping by and all the lovely comments. I really appreciate them so much.

Your SAL is comming along wonderfully! I have to Thank You for enabeling me to participate LOL I did the first 2 parts so far and will work on part 3 tonight. It really is an adorable design! Carole is so talented & generous to share it with us.
I love how your stitching the designs seperately! First the pinpillow and now the ornament. Very pretty!

The crocus's and snowdrops are so pretty! I use to grow them when I lived in New York. Sadly they don't make it here in Florida. I also grew tulips and although they do sell them in pots here I am not sure they would come back every year if planted outdoors. So Thank you for sharing the flower pictures :) Love the little lambs too!

So glad your stitching mojo is back. I love the SAL, I wanted to join but I missed the cut off date. I hope I can get into her next SAL, she seems to host them frequently. If you need some floss I am happy to send you some. We can get it for 35 cents here. It would not cost much to mail you a small packet.

Have a great day.

CJ

Hello Mylene,

This is such a happy post, your stitching mojo has returned which is wonderful. I presume they are real tulips in your first couple of photo's just beautiful. I can't believe how many snowdrops there are. Thanks for driving back and getting your camera to share your part of the world with us.
Happy days.
