PS Seasonal for Elisa and a little more.

Here's the piece I stitched for Elisa for the HoE Prairie Schooler Seasonal exchange.  Elisa chose spring as the season she wanted stitched for her.  I chose two designs from the April Leaflet #152.  I used a 32ct fabric and the called for DMC threads and filled it with crushed walnut shells and lavender.  It felt good to stitch again.  So, I think I'll be picking up the needle again to finish a project I started and never finished.

While I was shopping at the farmer's market yesterday, I met a fellow church member.  She had a needlepoint pillow top her good friend had started and never finished.  The friend has since died, so she asked me if I would complete the stitching.  I said yes, though I do not know what possessed me.  Guess it was because I knew the lady who had died.  I'll give it a try, but cautioned her not to be in a big hurry!

I've taken three more trips since I did my last trip post, one to the Grand Canyon, one to a sheep farm, and one to Omaha. As soon as I get my photos uploaded, I'll post some.  I know you can't wait to see me milking a sheep!
