A Blessing and Tulips

It still needs to be washed, blocked, and framed... but here's the latest finished stitching.I found the kit on clearance at Hobby Lobby on the 18th of March and have been stitching whenever I went to a Guild meeting. Why on Earth I bought a kit that has 41 French knots in the stitching (when I loathe them!) I will never know. But I needed something that wasn't all shades of one color or another to work on and this fit the bill. I just love the sheep! Wishing I had made one of them black with a gray face though.

Some of the tulips are opening in the gardens. These are a few that I could photograph from the deck.


That's all for now. I am going to be starting a new cross stitch in the vain hope I can finish it in time for the show next month.

I really wish I have flowers in my garden :). Yours will do for now. Love that embroidery, am a sucker for anything with a cottage..lol. I was looking for one for mum but eventually bought her something funny.

Your gardens are ahead of mine. It is so nice to see tulips and daffodils and grape hyacinths. The first flowers of spring. It will be interesting to see what other flowers there are.
