Ready for spring?

Don’t know about you, but I certainly am….thought I might try and hurry it along with a new theme…there are no flowers in my garden yet, so I will make do with a little blog garden for now.

What have I been up to since I last blogged? Let’s see…last UFO Tuesday saw some progress on a long time un-finished project – Poppy Kitten. Here she was before, and after:

I did have a couple of small finishes – these adorable helicopters from the April 2008 issue of Cross Stitch Crazy are part of a set that I am stitching for a group that makes quilts for sick and injured children….they were so much fun to stitch, I will stitch another 2 very soon!

I am still working on that daffodil for Helen – slowly I’m afraid, but will get it finished this week.

Little woollies

Made a start on the tiny scarves – 22 knitted so far, 5 finished  and tassled:


These are a lot of fun and a nice break in between stitching.
