Happy Memorial Day and Blug Update

I'm back and it has been a long April and May for me. Now with tax season over(I work for a CPA), college graduation, my daughter's birthday, Mother's Day, and life, I can stitch on a regular schedule again. Another of my hobbies is making greeting cards and that has came me busy in April and May. I am now back stitching on my 15 cross stitch pieces rotation and have even finished a few items.. Here are my pictures of the completed and WIPs since my last post.

April in Texas

Texas Wildflowers, including Bluebonnetts  and Indian Paintbrushes, are in flull bloom. Here are a couple of pictures.

Also, I said yes again. I have been asked to stitch a few items for a church bazaar in the fall and of course I couldn't said no. One person donated a garbage bag full of baby bibs, blankets, a plush animal, towels, and a couple of afghans.
My friend said if I would stitch some of it for them, I could have some of it.
Here is the one I have started stiching an ice cream cone on it. It is a Charles Craft plush.
Life, including work and family, have gotten in way of stitching right now. I did put in a few stitches. I have also started another wine glass-mill hill for a gift in May.

March winds and Texas Bluebonnets

Another busy week at work and only a little stitching this past week. Spring is in the air here ever with a small cool snap.
The bluebonnets and Indian paint brushes are beginning to bloom everywhere. It is really a pretty sigh to see.
Also, went to Gonzales, TX this past weekend and watched my granddaughter ride in the last rodeo of the YRA season. She did really well. She ended up 5th in pole bending and did really good in barrels.
Here are pictures and my progress on the WIPs I stitched on last week and some pictures of Anna riding.

March Winds

March has always been known to be the windy month and today it is correct. We are to have a lot of wind and then rain, which we need here in SE Texas. A good time to get some stitching done inside. Sunday was a great and pretty day, I set outside all afternoon and stitched.
Here is my progress on several of my WIPs that I stitched on last week. I also finished the May Calendar Girl, now on to the June Calendar Girl
