Catching up and Getting Ready for Spring and Summer

Hi All, Have been busy getting the yard ready now that the weather has finally warmed up. So between stitching, yard work and cleaning out closets for the neighborhood yard sale, life has been full.

Also, was down in Florida to attend a meeting for the EGA (Embroiderer's Guild of America) National Seminar 2011 in Naples, Florida. Planned the trip so that I could spend some time with my friend Diane and help her and her Mom, Mildred get packed up. They are moving to Macon. I am so excited that they will be near by - Diane is an incredible stitcher and is very creative, so I am expecting that I will be doing some very different stitching things!!

Here in Macon, spring is just beautiful - this is the home of an incredible display of Cherry Trees, and there is an annual Cherry Blossom Festival. The entire county (Bibb) is just abloom with cherry trees - it is amazing to see. Unfortuately, once again I have missed the Festival, but hopefully next year I will be here.

Below are pictures of my yard - my tulips are coming up.
Here is a flower bed in the front of the garage.
Violets and tulips in a bird bath.
The cherry trees in my yard at full bloom
Can you see how pink the flowers on the tree are?
Well, that is it for now, have more to share later, the daffidols are blooming, need to get some pictures of them. Will hopefully have a stitch finish to share as well.

I am about 10 days behind in my blog reading, so please be patient with me while I try to catch up with you all.

Happy Easter my friends and thank you for stopping by.
