Spring has "Sprung"

Yes I do believe Winter is finally over, and none to soon for me.  The weather here went from 40 degrees one day to near 80 degrees the next.  I love it!!  We even reached 90 yesterday and of course the A/C was turned on.  Now I can get out and walk and play golf at last.
As for stitching after I finished my Banu design I decided that I was going to start the Little House Needleworks "Hometown Holiday Series"  so far there are two charts available.  At stitch night last Wednesday I picked up both "My House" and "Main Street Station".
Here is "My House" completely stitched.  It only too 3 evenings.


It's stitched on a 28ct Cashel with the recommended floss.  I will eventually be finishing them all into blocks as they are on the model.
I am now ready to start the second one "Main Street Station"
It will be stitched on 32 ct Lt Mocha Belfast linen with the recommended flosses.
I need to make a trip to my LNS to get the one Crescent Color I don't have and then it's on.  Well I need to get out of the house for now, so I can start making little xxs later.  Thank you all for stopping by.

Very pretty Minnie. I am sooo jealous. We can't even reach 40º here. Cold and rainy for 4 days. =(

HOORAY FOR SPRING!!!

You are a fast stitcher! It looks great. I really love the next one, even though I am not a huge fan of trains (I live next to some tracks). I guess I like them "in theory", LOL!

I agree with Heather ... you are a fast stitcher! You've got a great start on the series. I just may have to invest in that train one. I am sort of boycotting LHNs right now though so I'm not sure. Time will tell : ) You go outdoors when it's 90?!?!? I would love to hibernate the moment the temps reach 70 & not wake up again until they're in the 60s.
