A Blessed Easter!
I've had a quiet Easter at home. Such a beautiful warm and sunny day here in northern Arizona! With all the sunshine pouring in through the windows, it was a lovely day to sit and stitch. I finished Inchies # 11 and 12. Lovely green grass ~ something I crave here in northern Arizona where the grass doesn't really turn green until the monsoon rains come in July. Little blue forget-me-nots are such a perfect little spring flower. Every time I see them, they make me smile!
Though today is Easter, I also did some Christmas stitching today. Last week I received my Winter/Christmas DYB blocks back from our round robin group. It is always so much fun to see the blocks in person after hearing about them and seeing photographs. After looking at them all together and deciding that I wanted to make a bell pull out of them, I stitched the last block to coordinate with the rest.
Then I stitched them together and embroidered the joining seams. Now I just need to add the backing and binding and this will be a completed project! From top to bottom the work on the blocks was completed by: RoseAnne (Canada); jointly by all participants; Rita (USA); Karrin (USA); Margreet (Netherlands); me (USA). Thank you ladies for your wonderful work!
It didn't seem right at Easter to leave you with images of Christmas, so here is one of my favorite Easter photos from a couple years ago!
See the land, her Easter keeping,
Rises as her Maker rose.
Seeds, so long in darkness sleeping,
Burst at last from winter snows.
Earth with heaven above rejoices.

Hope you have all been having a blessed and joyful day!
