A week's progress

I didn't get quite as much done on this as I wanted  there are some slow spots to it but I'm still enjoying it.   The  stems do go a little further to the right but I'll catch them next week.   The only thing I don't like about this piece is it is spread out over several pages  but it's working out fine.  

 Today my niece, Melissa is 30.   She was the one who got my very first Cross Stitch piece that I actually finished.   It was a birth sampler and to this day she still has it.   In fact about a year ago she asked her mom to take it out of the frame and make it into a quilt with some pieces her mom  made for her when she was a baby.   It really turned out nice.   

Tomorrow my great nephew, Ashton, turns 8.   We are going rollar skating.   I have not rollar skated in years and the verdict is still out if I will try it again.   I use to love to rollar skate so in a way I want to.  We'll see.    I need to get him a birthday card.

We are enjoying our spring like weather.   It's been 40's, 50's here.   Next week is back to 30's but it is still March.   And 30's aren't that awful.   I just can't wait for mid April and then spring might be here to stay.

Well, until next time Happy Stitching!

It's so pretty. Have fun with your roller-skating outing with your great nephew. I can't roller-skate at all. Spend more time on my hind-end than anything else:/

Your piece is really beautiful! I can't wait to see the finished project.

I loved roller skating as a kid, but I would be terrified to try it now. Too old, and bones too easily broken = LOL!!

Your square is coming along nicely. It's going to be very pretty when finished (it already is, actually).

If you decide to roller skate, please be careful and have fun!

You stitching is lovely and the flowers look like they could come right off the linen and be a lovely bouquet sittingf in a vase ready to be smelled! Have fun on your outing and if you feel froggy, put those skates on!

That is really neat your niece had her mom make your xs into something with other sentimental items.
