These made me smile....

I have been putting a little more spring decorations out this week and when I married up my FAVORITE design by Tanya the Sampler Girl with my new little SamSarah carrots, I thought they married up perfectly.... Makes me want to steam up some carrots for dinner tonight!!


"eat your carrots" The Sampler Girl freebie
"Harried Hare" carrots SamSarah Designs

Last year when I made this pinkeep, I thought a little pocket on the backside would be perfect for needles, scissors or just a sweet message....

And, this weeks sewing task produced a new  pillow made from another finished stitch from my box of springy finishes....somehow I manage to cross stitch and set the finishes aside until ready to sew them up when the mood strikes... This design is actually another freebie that Cross-Eyed Cricket put out in either 2009 or 2010...

Cross Eyed Cricket freebie
28 ct pale yellow linen
DMC threads

The design is actually about 7 inches long when stitched on 28 ct, so I sewed up a tall pillow....perfect for tucking into a basket among some smaller pillows....


And, lastly, I did manage to finish up one more square "Moonlight Visitor" on my Blackbird Designs Anniversaries of the Heart project.....Soon, that last chart will be on the shelves and I will be on a mission to get this  lovely done....Stretched over many months, this has been alot of fun~~~


36 ct Winter Frost by R & R Linens
GAST, CC, WDW overdye threads



Moonlight Garden block

I have not added the personalization on this square yet...I thought I would add that to several of them once I was completed with the entire piece.....

Okay, got to head out the door for work soon.....Yippee, its Thursday and that can only mean one thing....Tomorrow's Friday!!!   Living for the weekend~~~

Have a great day,

Faye
