Quote of the Week - HAPPY EASTER!

Happy Easter to my love!
As days turn into daze,
Perhaps the holiday will prove
Potent to your gaze.
Years pass like a blur, and yet
Eternity stands still,
Available in silhouette,
Seen by act of will.
This day may you be touched by grace,
Embraced by love, my passion moved,
Reborn to time and place.

My update...

I haven't been posting much as my projects are taking a little longer these days due to my obsession with Facebook. (Hey, might as well come clean!) I was also away this weekend and spent 4 days visiting with my daughter in Arizona.

I stitched some squares for my partner in the "Fair & Square" exchange and I will post pictures of them when they are in her hands. I've also been concentrating on my crocheting and still need to finish the blanket I started for my grandson who is due in late May. I did finish a lap blanket for a friend who will donate it to her church as part of a fund raiser. I hope it helps them out. My last crochet project was a pillow for a special gal who celebrated her birthday on March 23rd. She's a very big Oakland Raiders fan so it's done in black and silver and the number is of course her date of birth.

Weekly Update

I concentrated all my stitching efforts to finishing "He Is Risen" and put the last stitches in it last night while watching TV. I love how this piece turned out and look forward to framing it and hanging it with the rest of my LHN pieces.

Spring is in the air...

Okay maybe it's just wistful thinking considering how chilly it's out there tonight at 49 degrees. Perhaps my flowers and plants know something I don't cause they are starting to blossom and hence giving me hope that Spring is around the corner. I took these photos this weekend in our front yard. The bougainvillea and aloe vera are sprouting and our black lily actually had four blossoms this year. Our friend "Woody" wakes us up each morning.

"To love is to risk not being loved in return. To hope is to risk pain. To try is to risk failure, but risk must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing."
