happy spring!

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend, filled with fun, friends, family and of course food! I know we did!

Friday I had a wonderful stitching day with my stitching buddy, and actually got out of my mini slump, and got lots of stitching done on the BBD Bird in Hand. Friday night when we came home, as Hubby was over there too helping with some guy stuff (building and fixing things) with her sweetie, I continued to stitch and even finished it up! So here is my newest happy dance! Hubby and I (actually more Hubby than me) finished it into something already but that is a surprise as it turns out that this will be a gift! Hopefully the recipient will like it once it arrives!

Stitched on mystery 28ct fabric with
GAST - Claret

I'm definitely going to have to stitch this again for myself, as I really love how it turned out!

Then Saturday we spent the morning being nice and lazy here at home, the afternoon saw an easter egg hunt with the family, and the evening was filled with a great dinner of sushi with friends. It was a great day!

Sunday we went to church, which was very nice - as we don't usually tend to go very often. It was wonderful to see everyone there. Then we came home relaxed some more and then headed off to my SIL for a wonderful family dinner of ham, and goose! Very yummy!!!

I also took Monday off from work, so I got an extra long weekend, and it was wonderful! Monday was again a lazy day, really didn't do anything that I had planned to do, other than spend time with Hubby and my Dad.

I did manage to start a new project (yet again) as well over the weekend, I started Quaker Sampling III by With My Needle. I'm stitching it over 2 on 28ct ivory jobelan, so it will be huge, with Rose Garden GAST. I seem to be in red mood lately... anyways not much progress to show on that one just yet so no picture... next time!

till then happy stitching!
