A Quick Little Finish Of A Cute Little Sled

A quick post to show the completion of April's 2015 Small SAL

Designer: Lizzie Kate
Design: Sled Dudes

After stitching and finishing 15 of these sled designs for a friend in SC, I decided that I needed to stitch a few for myself.  These are such a fast stitch (on perforated paper) and can be quickly mounted on the sled. They are truly adorable ornaments!

A thoughtful, sweet friend in Georgia sent us a box of these delicious pecans and taffy from Dickey Farms

I especially liked the chocolate covered pecans. Look how large each one is…

It did not take me long to finish off that bag. Ugh, no will power. The peach taffy is delicious as well. 

I can't wait to receive the Georgia peaches in June!!!  

Late last week I received notification that I did get into the Travel With Meagan class at Celebration of Needlework in Nashua, NH on Friday~ Yahoo!  

With warmer temperatures and more sunny days the weather seems to be improving. It's doubtful that we will experience any additional spring snow.

Thank you for stopping by…
Until next time…

Did Vermont Not Get The Memo?

It's spring, STOP SNOWING!!!

This is crazy…April 23rd and the snow is falling.   

On a happier note ~ I completed Lantern Lane.  I snapped a quick pic before heading out to get this framed.

Designer: Little House Needleworks
Design: Lantern Lane
Fabric: 30ct Natural Linen over two
Floss: WDW & CCW

This was a birthday gift from my dear friend, Vonna (thanks again! :-D).  She sent the pattern, fabric, and threads so all I needed to do was stitch it. I really love this design and look forward to hanging it in my home.

I plan to attend Celebration if Needlework in Nashua, NH next week and am hoping to get into a class that I signed up for last minute.  A highlight of the trip will be time spent with Carol and Margaret! It's always nice to get together with these ladies at the show.

Thanks for stopping by
Until next time…
