I'm ready for spring!

After an extremely mild winter here in Wisconsin last year, this winter is decidedly more typical of what I've come to expect after living here for 11 years. Seems like we get a few to several inches of snow at least once a week; the snow at the end of our driveway is piled so high at the sides that we can hardly see cars coming down the street when we're backing out. I haven't seen any robins, yet, but hopefully will in the next couple of weeks.

Partly to cheer myself up, and partly because Debbie said I should (see, I do read all the comments!), I spent a little time with Blue Jeans and Daisies a couple of nights ago:

The floss and fabric colors are so pretty and spring-y, and it's a really enjoyable stitch. However, I have received the next model from Karen, so I won't be able to work on my own stitching very much in the next month, or so. I'll have to try to work on my own at least once a week, just so I have something I can share.

I'm looking forward to seeing all the new designs that come out at the TNNA trade show this coming weekend; hopefully, we can all find wonderful new treasures that we just have to stitch!


  1. Nice progress...I was ready for something 'springy' after finishing my snowman also...working on a MB bunny...

  2. Oh these certainly are pretty spring-y colors! I'm glad you'll stitch on this once a week so you can share your progress with the rest of us! Our temps are in the 70s here, but I can see snow up in the mountains. It's pretty to look at from a distance!

  3. Great progress Melanie. I love the colors.


  4. Blue Jeans & Daisies is looking good.
    Can't wait to see more! :)
