Spring has Sprung and some stitching

Hi all, just a few stitchy things to show you.
This is a project bag I stitched for a friend for her birthday.  there is a small 'orts' bag and a pinkeep with thread holder rings attached.  Her initial is done with fabric pen and ink on very fine muslin.
 Here is Quaker Christmas - almost done -- the plan is to be finished by the end of April.
 Below are some photos of my back yard - you will notice that the Cherry trees are just about done blooming, but the Dogwoods are blooming and my white azalea's are in full bloom.

I have been working and planting in the yard trying to get all ready for summer - once it gets too hot not much yard work will get done!!!

Hope you all are enjoying some spring weather or in some cases Fall.

Have a great week - thank you for visiting.               Roberta
