Wonderful day, here. Just like Spring. Mild weather and I even see green leaves on the trees. I saw some caterpillars today, climbing up the windows in the den. Not the stinging kind, but the ones we played with as kids. Unfortunately, they chew on the shrubery, so they will be short-lived.
I paid a visit to my LNS and picked up a couple of charts I had ordered. The first is the "Traveling Stitcher" by Little House Needleworks. I have to confess that I actually took a few stitches when I got home with it. No finishing instructions were included, but there are a couple of pictures on the website. It should be easy enough to figure out how to do it. And I hope I can find some fabric like what's shown. It's shown above.
The second chart is the Quaker Seasons of Friendship by Crown & Thistle, shown below. No thoughts of doing that one right now. It's BIG. Worked on 40 ct. fabby which I don't even dream of. I can see why one color is used. It's very busy. It's shown in Belle Soir's Mudpie. Forget that! I couldn't live with that much brown. I see it in some sort of blue.
That's about all on tap today. It's such a beautiful afternoon that I should get my big self up and go out and walk. Maybe in a few minutes. Right now the view out my den windows is great. All those lovely green leaves. The deer and fawns will be coming out soon and Spring will be officially here!
