Mary Ann Blackburn Update

Springtime in our Yard- 2013

Looking forward to spring as it's been truly cool lately in our area.  I hope the yard blooms as it did a few years ago, as shown above. Flowers in our yard make my heart soar!

We are not accustomed to temperatures that approach freezing around here. (overnight, not during the day, of course)  I am not used to even wearing long sleeves, much less sweaters in the house. Crop pants are my cup of tea, in fact. 

 On a stitchy note, I've been working happily along on Mary Ann Blackburn. Yesterday I got to stitch along nicely while watching Jane Austen's Persuasion on YouTube.  

The colors of this piece are turning out so nicely, and I must drag out the finer camera to take a better photo for my next update.   Sharing my progress today as taken on my 'simpler' camera:

Thanks for stopping by today!

  2. Thanks for the comment on my blog, glad you enjoy your visits.
    I see you've stitched Gathering Honey too, from your header. I'm about half way through and Jacquie has just started her's.

  3. Thanks for your comment here, Jo! I loved stitching Gathering Honey, so long ago. It is still hanging in our bedroom. I should 'update' things but I just let it be. Hope you're enjoying stitching it, too.


Thanks for leaving your thoughts and comments. I love hearing from you!
