Oh, What a Glorious Day!

Today is a glorious day, and I just couldn't resist capturing this lovely, flowering pink tree in our backyard.  Before long, the blossoms will drop and then we will have to wait until next Spring to enjoy them again.

As I stitched away on some of my little 'Spring' pieces, I realized that it has been 2 weeks since I have posted anything!  So, here I am, and here are my most recent finishes.
'Five Little Eggs'
by Shepherd's Bush
Although I showed you the finished stitching before Easter, I had not had time to finish it as a pincushion and sew on the silk ribbon and little beads. 

'April Word Play'
by Brenda Gervais
With Thy Needle & Thread

 Instead of the recommended 'rusted jingle bells', to be sewn along the bottom of this little doorbell pillow, I decided to add some pearlized flower buttons.  I think that they add a nice touch  of  Springtime flowers!

Next up, is the beginning of 'May WordPlay', which I just started, so not much progress so far.  I'm not sure why I am so addicted to these little WordPlay pillows, but then I love stitching monthly pieces, and putting them up every year.
Guess who has been sleeping in Mama Bear's Chair today?  Miss Meggie, that's who!
When Meggie heard me snapping a picture of her sleeping, she decided to poker her little face out, to see why on earth Mama was bothering her.
Here we are, looking cute, tucked in back with Mama's back and arm pillows that I use when stitching.  Meggie thinks Mama's stitching nest is really HER nest.....for sleeping of course!

Where ever you are today, and whatever you are doing this weekend, I hope that you will find some peaceful moments, just for yourself, to indulge in what you enjoy doing most......possibly a little stitching time?  

May the joy of life delight you.  May peace abide within your heart. May faith be your guiding light, and may you find true contentment in the simplest things in life.

Blessings in Stitches & Friendship With All of You, My Very Dear Friends!

Consider the Lilies of the Field
