The First Robin of Spring

Happy Thursday!!!

I finished this freebie, finally...




The First Robin of Spring by Elizabeth Foster from 2003. I believe it was a freebie with a online order. I made it in a little pillow cushion for my smalls basket



When Anna was here a few Sundays ago, she twisted my arm ( I know, mean, right??!!)to stitch on Quaker Christmas. I'm glad she did because I love the progress I made.




Enough of Christmas.



Let's get on with my favorite... Halloween

I gathered all my Casting a Spell things together to paint the box.



As you can see I already stitched 2 of the 10 of the designs





Soooo, after Zumba class tonight I will paint the box. I was going to do it after this post, but after seeing I had 350 in my google reader, I think I'll try to tackle some of them




I'll leave you with snaps of GD Brianna by the daffodils








Thanks so much for stopping by my little corner of my world


Happy Spring!!!!

Cute freebie finish!

Lovely progress on Quaker Christmas. Good luck with painting your box for the BBD pieces.

Cute photos of your GD! I can't believe how much she's grown. Hardly seems like 5 minutes since she was born.

I pulled that little robin chart with the intent of stitching him this spring, Ranae, but just never got around to it. Your finish is adorable :) Lovely progress on your Quaker, too...

Miss Brianna sure is growing up--such a cutie :)
