More weekend fun

I decided to stay home today while hubby went on a bike ride. Truth is I needed to recover from yesterday's walk in the rose garden and the farewell party for my daughter. Sarai is moving to Las Vegas to attend culinary school, going to miss her and Lyric.

I tackled the chaos in my stitching room and found two pieces I finished a while back that were still not laced and framed. Seemed like a good as time as any to finish them. So here are Winter Sampler by Birds of A Feather and Chocolate Shoppe by Little House Needleworks. Now to find the perfect spot on the wall.

Busy spring weekend...

How much fun can you pack into one weekend? Not sure but we sure gave it our best shot. Yesterday hubby and I took a stroll down to the Heritage Rose Garden in San Jose. Not many of the flowers were blooming but they were off to a good start. I will have to check them out again in a few weeks. Even so we managed to grab a few shots.

Stitching finish

This was a great like "quickie" to stitch and I just might have to stitch it again in another color or two. Design is from the JCS Ornament issue, Cross of Christmas by My Big Toe Design and stitched on 16 ct. aida with DMC 930 and 932 floss.
