Sweet Spring

I'm still fairly new at this blogging stuff. I wanted to show my progress second, not first. Oh well, here you have my progress on Sweet Spring. Spring is my all time favourite season. This is stitched on Linen Gingham 28 count over 2 with DMC and Olde Willow overdyed threads. This design also has a specialty stitch, namely the smyrna cross stitch which is the light green inside the border.

A few years ago when DH & I spent a week in Pennsylvania, we went to Hershey. I attended the CATS (Creative arts & textile show) where I had arranged to meet an online stitching friend from Maryland. Her hubby and my hubby went golfing while us girls had a blast at the show. This design by M designs was just one of the few items I bought at the show.

Thank you so much for posting such sweet comments on my blog. I do feel much better since posting that. It's really hard at times to deal with all of the things but I can make it through. :-D Sometimes I need to vent, though.

I love this cross stitch piece that you're working on. Very cute!
