Touches of Spring


My additions to Be Kind and True today made me think of spring :-) Winter has a very firm grip on the Northeast this year. It looks like we have either bitter cold days or snowy days coming up as far as the eye can see... five more weeks until spring... I wonder if even then it will warm up, which may mean no daffodils this year. If it is too cold and snowy in March, mine will bud up and never open. Sigh...

Anyhow... back to work tomorrow!

Stitched on today: Finished a gift, and Be Kind and True

No daffodils is just too bleak a thought to entertain!

Love your progress on this beautiful design!

Wow you're speeding right along with this one. I really hope your daffodils do come through, it just wouldn't be spring without them! I am so annoyed with myself that I didn't plant any this year, what a thing to forget!!

This piece is so pretty :) I just emailed you about the chart - thanks!

We are having a very early Spring here - it's been incredibly warm and sunny over the past few days. But as Nicki said - way too early!

Such a pretty design! Your progress is great.
I haven't had any luck with daffodils. Each year I keep trying but my bulbs never do anything. No problem with the tulips though. Any suggestions?

This piece is just beautiful. In some ways I envy you the cold! Here in Auckland we are at 88% humidity and looking forward to the autumn leaves!!
