This weekend

 I'm a grass widow this weekend, Mark had to work so I was left to my own devices :-)

I was in the mood for a bit of Spring cleaning, I've washed all the cushion covers and throws, cleaned windows, sorted all the kitchen cupboards and drawers and sorted anther bag for the charity shop, amazing what you can get done when there are no interruptions (ha ha)

It's not very often I get to spend time in the house on my own now, I must say, I've enjoyed the quiet time.  I've not picked up any stitching during the week so yesterday I sat and put quite a lot of stitches into Autumn Dream.

There is more stitching in this piece than you imagine when first looking at it, it's not going to be finished anytime soon.


I took down my February decorations and put out some Spring ones
Do you like my little bunny vase?  He has a yellow pompom tail too :-) cute!!
The candle you can see behind the little pillow is a Hot Cross Bun one, it smells gorgeous!


 The stitched pillow is a Little House Needleworks, the cottage of the month series, although March is the only one of this series that I stitched.


There are signs of Spring in the garden at last, we have had more than our fair share of rain and wind over the last couple of months but today although it was windy the sun has been shinning beautifully.




  I really should have been out there enjoying the good weather and catching up on clearing some of the debris of sticks and twigs left in the garden but I haven't, I've been sitting with my feet up stitching on my new April Calendar Girl and binge watching Tourchwood for a second time.

I hope you have had a great weekend too and enjoyed whatever you got up too.

See you soon

We had family for weekend, grandsons everywhere and very loud, but loads of fun. Now it's peaceful, I need to do housework but that's for tomorrow, love your stitching.

It's nice to have some quiet time alone every once in a while. Autumn Dream is progressing well and the March Cottage of the Month is lovely, Little House Needleworks have some lovely designs. We had some nice days last week but it's back to rain here today.

Hello Maggie,

I do recognize the big progress you can have when you're alone for awhile. Yes, nice for awhile but not too long ... LOL
Your stitches are so nice: the autumn stitches and the March pillow, so sweet ...

Have a nice Springtime!

Autumn Dream is looking lovely.
I do like the border edge on the LHN, very effective the green is.
Sweet vase, he's cute!

Great March pillow, good progress on Autumn. It's so nice to see the flowers blooming

Glad you got so much done, and I LOVE your bunny vase, that really is cute. I too switched out my table decorations for spring looking placemats....but our spring looks farther away than yours. No flowers here yet anywhere. But, I do see about 4 inches of green leaves popping up...so maybe not too much longer before we'll have some buds.

Love seeing the signs of spring both inside your house and out, Maggie. That bunny vase is just darling and the spring daffodils will cheer any room. I was just visiting my mom and bought her a bunch at the grocery store and she was so happy :)

Those Songbird Series charts are VERY deceiving--they do take much longer to stitch than you would think. I so love your Autumn Dream piece! Can't wait til you get to the tiny pumpkin cottage--that is just the cutest.

Enjoy your week, Maggie! ♥

A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.
Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
