Spring Stitchin'

Hi All!
I hope that spring is finding you well! It's weird & wonderful here in northern California this year, Saturday it was a blistering 91 degrees which really seemed to come out of nowhere, now it's cooled off again and we're expecting rain tomorrow, odd... and lovely. I love a spring rain.

Last week, I felt a urgent need to stitch a chubby blue bird, I could think of nothing else until this wee birdie was stitched. Has that ever happened to you?

I found a graphic I liked from the Hoop Love Vintage Transfer group on Flickr, printed it out, transferred it onto fabric and got to stitching!

She's a cute little bird and handy with a needle.
I stitched the needle using the same silver thread that I used on the fisherman's net on my Wynken, Blynken & Nod piece, seen here. It's made by Kreinik and is SO much easier to use than the metallics made by my usual, go-to brand of floss, DMC. 

Hey, this little bird knows how to stitch! Look at her pretty little flowers, teehee. 

There, all done! Life can resume as normal now that I've got that bluebird out of my system.

I've been up to a few other crafty things lately too, and I hope to share those with you very soon. 
Sew! What have y'all been up to? Has the spring fever bug gotten to you yet? Do tell (and show if you have a link, I'd love to come over and see)! 
Ta ta for now!

Hoppy Easter

Hello dearlings!
Just scooting by to wish you all a very

Happy Easter Weekend!

It looks like it's going to be a beautiful, sunny weekend in my neck of the woods and I think I might like to play in the dirt a little, maybe start some seeds and maybe plant some strawberries.
Of course there will be some of my favorite chocolate eggs on Sunday, can't forget those! Maybe one of these too, yum-yum! 

Hope your Easter is as sweet as can be!
