Spring Has Arrived

No stitching today just a few pictures from around the house and yard. My favorite time of the year is fall and winter but spring is beautiful. We have decorated for Easter.

We had a hard time growing these until we read about not getting the tuberances wet. Now the cyclamens are thriving. That is the crown of the plant

Wired Mannequins

I Love these wired mannequins. I use them to hang fobs on. The little one is a new addition.

I have visited many blogs over last few years, and I'm amazed at the very talented people out there. The beautiful things that can be made with needle and thread is astounding. I have made some friend in the blogging community but not half as many as I would like. I would like to thanks all my new friends for visiting and leaving comments.

I have to work for the next three days so my blog time will limited. Everybody have a wonderful few days. Here in Metairie we have had 4 beautiful days. The rain came in this afternoon.
