Happy Dance

Good afternoon! After a week of crummy weather the sun is shinning. We bit the bullet as far as the winter storm goes, it went all around us. We did get a lot of rain though. Now the next week is suppose to be nice, Right now 37 and 38 are at end of 10 day forecast but that can change by the time the days get here. It can go up.

I finished this heart piece a couple of days ago. It was a love-hate relationship. I loved doing it but hated the blending filament. It will go to one of the quilts being done for the Kalamazoo shooting victims.

My sister was going to come in on Tuesday for a couple of days but because of the weather forecast she didn't want to get here and then not get home Thurs. So she'll come a couple of weeks from today.

The last two Easters my brother and I went to another brother's house for Easter. This year nothing was said about it. But I think because of their daughter and son in law moving this weekend they will be busy helping them. So I'm just going to have Tim come here after church and we'll have a ham dinner. I've never made a good ham before but I think I bought a good one this time. (Usually I just buy canned ham and I didn't
like that as well as the real ham which I bought this time.)

With it being Easter, I decided to do a cross piece by Sudbury House. It had 4 seasonal crosses. I made a couple color changes because I didn't have the Silver Krenik but had another one that made the cross more rustic, plus didn't have enough 761 so used 760 instead. So both changes do make a difference on the appearance of the piece I can see that already.

Well Hope everyone has a nice Easter. Until next time.....Happy Stitching

Such a delicate and beautiful finish Barb. Well done for stitching the Kreinik. I'm sure it looks lovely and, with hindsight, was worth all the effort! :)
