It's Almost May

It is almost May.  We have had wonderful weather.  I can honestly say, I am loving this Spring - and it is my very least favorite time of the year.  

Baseball is Back.  And it is so easy to stitch with baseball in the background.  It is the last Friday of the month.  Its Sharing Day for  Small SAL Hosted by Stitching Lotus 

I am stitching 12 days of Christmas this year and April 4 Calling Birds.  Jo over at Serendipitous Stitching shared this great link about this song and all the different versions and all about these birds.  It is a great read and you may find out, you really do know the words.

I also broke out two of my 2017 WIPS.  Autumn Bell Pull by Stoney Creek.  I have stitched these designs since my early stitching days and they feel like home to me,  I still subscribe to this magazine and find something in every issue that appeals to me.

 I also stitched a little on my granddaughter's Woodland Animals Stocking.  I will have no problem getting this one finished on time.

So Baseball ball update, my team is now losing 9-1.  But it's not over yet.

Have a great weekend
