I was feeling really inspired today by Isabelle's beautiful finish of DT's Summer Into Autumn... as well as by Katrina's relatively recent finish of DT's Winter Into Spring... so I dug out my old Winter Into Spring WIP/UFO... who knows when I started this... it came out in 1998, and that is probably when I started it! I worked a bit on the "spot motif" band, and even stitched the year this afternoon, to reinforce my finishing it soon!! It was fun, and I am glad I took it back out. Who knows, maybe it will motivate me to pick up An Open Heart again... Now on to M9 again...
And... Bless Martina for giving another small section for Mystery IX... Part 5 is done now. I loved the pinky (WL Rose Blush) eyelets in these two garden triangles... so delicate and sweet! So, since there is still quite a long time to go on the laundry right now, I will go back to Winter Into Spring :-)
We planted some super pretty shrub roses today, called "Pink & Proud," and one Explorer Shrub Rose in a pale baby pink too... can't wait for them to bloom now! It's that time of the year now when my stitching needs to share time with my gardening :-)
Stitched on today: Winter Into Spring and Mystery IX
