This is a journal cover that I stitched from a kit I found in my stash. I will now have a journal to write all of the things I "must" have for my stash. That is all I have finished for now. I have lots of WIPs to work on but won't get to any of them until after Celebrations. Boys are on vacation and I have my niece and nephew next week.

Here is the Indigo Rose needlecase that I took with Cathy and Carol. I have had the stitching portion done for a long time but I was afraid of the finishing work. Guess what, easy peasey!! I strongly recommend Catherine Strickler classes. The stitching was enjoyable and the finishing completely manageable.

Well, I was feeling guilty about taking classes again this year so I spent the rainy weekend finishing the 2 classes I took. This is pilgrim etui which came out really cute. Hard to take pictures of it so you will have to see it in person. I substituted thread rings where she had a scrim ruler because I didn't have a ruler that fit.

Hi Everyone! I know this isn't stitching related but I thought I would share this picture of Maycee with you. It was taken after we got days and days of rain. The sun was shining bright and it was a warm beautiful day. Miss Kitty jumped into the open window and gave her belly to the sun. She sat in that window all day. Ahhh!!! THE SUN oh how I love the sun.

Here is April Monthly Sampler from Little House Needlework. I finished it awhile ago but only recently got the picture out of the camera. I hope you are all happily stitching. I am looking forward to the end of the month. Celebrations here we come!
