Flatfold, easter SAL a few flower pics.

Actually stitched this before the end of March and completed it into a flatfold the very last day of March! The finishing always gives me problem as sometimes can't decide which kind or i don't have the needed materials for it. Well, this is done and i Love it!!

Here is a current pic of the Easter SAL with a bookmark finishing!! Just bought that book last week when i couldn't find any english ones that i wanted to read at the library..they haven't taken any new ones yet. I think they take in a few every 3 months and sometimes not my favorite.. I do read some books in dutch, have too but i still miss english ones and do them alternately!!

Lots of Daffodils along the roads these days, crocuses are gone!! Took these while hubby was driving last sunday when we went to one of his nephew.

Saw many fields of Daffodils along the road when we were on the way back from Amsterdam last tuesday. If we weren't rushing to catch the ferry going home we could have drove over nearby one of the field for pictures but Chris was waiting to take him for his guitar lesson.

Just took a pic today of some flowers here inside...

Honestly, i haven't touch the needle this week...too busy. I am sorry i haven't been visiting blogs or groups too, just don't have time lately.

Many many THANKS to all who stopped by and all the kind comments. I really appreciate it so much. I hope you are all having a good week.

You're so fortunate to have so many beautiful flowers in your home!

I've had a needle in my hand this week but not for long. I'm hoping we both get some serious stitching time soon!

Super flat fold. And I love that Easter SAL.

Stitching has taken a back seat with me too lately. Life just keeps getting in the way.

Definitely spring in your part of town!
