I have been missing, but still stitching - mostly hand work. The next temperature rosette is showing that Spring is trying here. Trying is the word as we get a warmer tease with some pretty wild weather. We had our first thunder/lightening storm a couple of nights ago that shook the valley! The high winds that came with it did more tree damage which will result in plenty of firewood for the next winter season.

I haven't touched my sewing machine in days due to concentrating on getting this piece finished. I have about 300 miles of back stitching to do and if you do cross stitch, you know how tedious that is. This is worked on 16 count Aida cloth with one, two, and three strands of DMC thread for a lot of dimension. I can't wait for this to be finished - my eyes will be glad too.
BUT it is Mother's Day and I deserve a little machine time. I did a presentation on making journal covers at our last quilt guild meeting and those sample pieces are sitting there. I have three that are designed for my grandkids to cover composition notebooks for their journaling. Maybe I can get these finished so I can send them on with some other goodies.
Enjoy your day,
