Two More Flowers of the Month Stitched

 I finished the January Flower from the Ellen Maurer-Stroh Flower of the Month project last week.  I have had this project all kitted up for a number of years, so this year I decided to get started on it.  I did the February flower first a few months ago, so I though I should get the January one done also.
 Since I was on a roll, I continued stitching and managed to get the March Flower done also.  I love these cheerful daffodils!  There wasn't any backstitching on the January and February squares.....imagine my surprise to have to do some backstitching on the March square, but it was worth it.
Here is the entire project up as it stand now.  I will start the April flower in July.....

A Finish for my Princess

Natalie, being my favorite and only granddaughter, is very special to me.  She loves pink, and is referred to as our princess.  So...as soon as this is framed it will be going to adorn the walls of her room.....

Another Flag Finish

Those white stripes almost did me in......but I just did a little at a time....about an hour a day, most of it pulling out stitches that were placed wrong, but....ta da...!  The stitching is done!  I am not sure how I will 'finish' it.....

In case you don't remember, this is the Nancy Cucci U.S.A to Z Frame Weight that I took as class in March....

A Haul of Hummels!

I feel like I hit the mother load!  A dear friend had been storing her deceased mother-in-law's
Hummels for a long time, through a few moves, and decided they needed a new home, with someone who would love them.  She though of me!  My daughter was going to be near her house, so she picked them up for me so they wouldn't have to be shipped across a few states, and I just got the box!  It was better then Christmas!
