Herald of spring

Look what I found flowering in my garden last week, daffodils! Yay (love Spring!).

I finished up Beach Cottage by CCN recently. I like how the design turned out, but wasn't so happy with the choice of fabric and its loose weave. I'll probably keep the rest of it for small designs.

Continuing on with the beach theme, I've made a start on LHN's Old Nantucket. Loving the colours in this one.

Last up for todays post is some new stash. I bought 'Lil Jack and the Kitty' by Bent Creek with the last of my birthday money. I'm having to resist the urge to get started on this little cutie, since I have only just started on Old Nantucket! :-)

I hope you've got plenty of stitching to keep you happy this weekend! Have a good one folks.

Happy Spring to you, Rowyn! Please post lots of warm, sunny photos over the next six months to keep us folks in the Northern Hemisphere warm (at least in our minds!):) I'm looking forward to fall, but dread the coming winter. The older I get, the harder it is to take...

Your Beach Cottage is adorable and I look forward to following along on your Old Nantucket progress--that is such a pretty design!

I missed your last post with the beautiful photos, you know I love to see your country. I can't believe it's spring with you and autumn is beginning with us.

Congrats on finishing "Beach Cottage". It looks great.
Nantucket is looking lovely too. You're right, the colors are gorgeous. And your new Kitty looks very promising too. That look on her face is adorable

A lovely finish with Beach Cottage and an appropriate finish for the beginning of spring.

Love your Kitty piece, I can see why it would be hard to resist.
