Spring's Arrival

It appears as if spring has arrived here in the desert. Temperatures here the last week or so have been in the 70's, with a high predicted this coming Friday of 81. Naturally, my thoughts of stitching have naturally turned towards spring related projects. Easter is going to be early this year, on March 29, which also means a very short season for Peeps from the Just Born candy company. 

I got this one out this past weekend and worked on it a bit. After hitting my thousand stitch goal for the challenge that Michelle Sayetta of Heaven and Earth Designs had issued on the official Heaven and Earth Designs Facebook group, I decided to keep going on this one until it was finished. As it is from the Bin O'Shame, this is yet one more closer to the goal of 12 for the year. As of this finish, this makes a total of five stitched from the Bin O'Shame this year. I am quite please with my progress in stitching up old as the hills projects. 

Well, at any rate, on with the show! :)

Design: Jardin Mythique

Designer: Danielle Chevallier of Danybrod

Fabric Used36 count Edinburgh linen in White

Fibers Used: Gloriana Threads  12 strand French silk floss in #079 Monet's Pond (Lot: T17/12148)

Stitcher's Notes: Began Friday, September 11, 2015. Will not be stitching the alphabet and outer border.  Finished as of Tuesday, February 23, 2016.

As of Monday, February 22, 2016:

 Finished as of Tuesday, February 23, 2016:

The question now remains: Do I stitch something from Kit Mountain, or perhaps Leaflet Silo? Or do I keep calm and carry on with the Bin O'Shame? I have some lovely Spring related projects that I could get to that really do need finishing up. I suppose we will all have to tune in later this week for 'As The Stitch Ends', haha!

I had best be off. Time for dinner chores. I hope everyone is having a fantastic week. 


Respectfully submitted,
