Well it's spring and I had a wonderful day yesterday. I had someone babysitting my youngest two so I could go to my 7 year old daughter's soccer game at 1:00. We had to arrive early because they were taking team pics. I had a rare moment that I had no one to supervise and nothing I had to do, so I sat in a folding chair, with my stitching and enjoyed the sun and blue sky and fresh air. The birds were singing, the butterflies flitting and I was stitching away without a care in the world! Ahhhhhh bliss! I managed to extend the feeling by moving it all to my back yard after the soccer game. The whole family spent as much time outside as possible. Check out my regular blog to see our butterfly catching.
I am almost done with part 2 of Alla Turka and will post a pic soon. I'm having fun dropping a few special stitches into it. Keeping with the butterfly theme, I've also signed up to do a new sal by Papillon Creations called Castles in the Air. Here is my color selection - a bit daring for me as I'm not really fond of rainbows like this and usually prefer simpler color schemes or tone on tone. We'll see if it overwhelms me and I simplify it as I go - you know me, gotta change it up! Anyway, check out www.papillon-creations.com for this SAL. It's beautiful. I've never paid for a SAL before but it was only about a $1.50 American, so cheap and there is a specialty stitch version so it's practically made for me!
