An Oink Oink Here, and a Meow Meow There

It's been too long since I've posted here; I have been stitching but not posting about it.

I did manage to finish stitching my 7th animal (the pig) from the Prairie Schooler Barnyard Christmas leaflet and I've started the final one.

My oldest daughter will be graduating from college in a few short weeks. She asked me to stitch her a cat for her French professor. We both agreed that this one by Danybrod would be perfect. I stitched it up yesterday and she is going to sew it together and put some whiskers on it.

This spring break she went to New York City and had some fun adventures. She met Clifford the Big Red Dog and visited a store dedicated to trims. Can you imagine that, an entire store filled only with trims, most of them imported from France? She picked up several nice ones for me.

I sent my most recent Christmas Ornament Exchange to Edgar which he received this week. I'm always so happy to stitch for Edgar because we both share a love for Prairie Schooler designs. I thought this one was perfect for him because he is a very hospitable person, and pineapples are a symbol of hospitality.

Thanks so much for dropping by. I hope you are enjoying springtime.
