Two blooming hearts

Two blooming hearts,that's right. Both are lovely enough to make my heart spitter spatter. Little things can exite

First I started "Where my Heart Blooms" by Blackbird Designs and loving it. It's such a lovely design and a pleasure to stitch.

After ordering and waiting for ages for the recommended fabric to arrive I decided I don't like it. So I went into my stash, grabbed some Belfast Light Mocha, made some week coffee and dyed it myself. . Although I'm quite pleased with the result, I hope the white will show off enough. If not, I can backstitch it can't I? At least I'm happy with

And the next heart IS a blooming heart. Isn't it lovely? I got that heart from Sarah who stitched it for me for the Prairie Schooler Seasonal exchange. I LOVE IT. It's gorgeous, from front and behind.  Receiving this gorgeous heart surely made my day bright. Sarah took the design from PS "Garden Blooms" and the tulip looks just fantastic on the heart. Love that little bee too.

And at last one more thing that made my day. A new flower frog for my scissors. It's not a new one of course, it's an old one, and I was after one just like that for a while. Found it at the other end of the Canada. Featured with some of my newer scissors....

I surely am on my way to Amsterdam...half way to be exactly. While stitching away I just realized that I was just a tad over the half way mark. Needless to say that this made my day!!!

Birds of a Feather Part one finished!!!

While watching tennis it got finished. It was so much fun to stitch. This little sampler is rather addictive and  I'm still in love with the colors. Now I have to wait until the second part gets released. I'm SO curious.  Thank god I'm not impatient ( Is it the June 10th yet???? No? What about now?

Anyway, here it is...
