Christmas in March

Hello, hello dear friends! The kiddos' spring break started last Thursday with 2 snow days. Finally some snow, now that it's spring, lol!

And some stitching to show! Jill is March's recipient for the Christmas Ornament Swap...and if you read a lot of stitching blogs, you know that she requested some sort of pine tree ;) I dyed a remnant piece of linen a pale green...

Quiet Night

by Erica Michaels Designs

JCS 2007

fabric: "staci-dyed" linen remnant

fibers: DMC and WDW, my own selection



We've had a very relaxing spring break, going here and there and also plenty of "just hanging out." I've even managed quite a bit of stitching and knitting! I'll be back next week to show you what I've been up to and back to my regular blog-reading/commenting :) Many hugs til then!
