Springtime 2024

Spring is finally here.  The cherry blossoms are all but finished their blooming.  It is always a race to catch the show when it arrives.  It ends all too quickly.

Many more blooms are showing up all over the city.  Tulips, Pansies, Irises, Cherry Blossoms, Magnolias, and Peonies.  Spring is such an uplifting season.  It soothes the soul to watch everything come to life once again.

How are you doing with your knitting and stitching?  Below you'll find projects and helpful products to keep you in stitches.

We have so many birds coming to our feeder.  This morning we watched Northern Flickers, Hairy Woodpeckers, Juncos, Downy Woodpeckers, and watched as a baby sparrow was being fed by its mother.

Embroidered Birds and their Habitats is a lovely book by Judy Wilford.  This is an inspiring book that leads you through stitch techniques, habitat ideas, and information on composition for your piece.
