Happy Easter, a Finish and WIPocalypse Update

Happy Easter everyone! It has been a gloriously gorgeous Easter Sunday here in NW Florida! I have spent the day with my mom. We had lunch together, talked and walked outside with the dogs. The kids have been on spring break and Brandon just came back earlier in the week from his Senior Trip.  So my two oldest have been out and about with friends most of the time! They are growing up and away from me.   I have worked, poor, poor mama! Okay, it wasn't that bad-LOL It has been a thoroughly blessed day.

I am happy to report a small finish. May Basket by Blackbird Designs-it's adorable I think and I love the colors in it. It's stitched on 30 count Putty by Weeks, using Gentle Art's overdyed threads. The border gave me some trouble but I managed to work past it. I didn't do the satin stitches on the butterfly only because I failed to read my stitching directions first.  Then I didn't want to frog any stitches.  Stitch count on this is only 49 x 50.  I will have it framed eventually for my sampler wall.

I almost let the March WIPocalypse get by me! So thus far I have completed 2 projects from the list and   May Basket was a new addition and a finish all at the sane tune. I am not sure how well I will do with this list, but it does keep me focused more on what I want to work on and I do like that.

I am off to start project number 1001, ha! I hope your week is a great one!
