Even I am itching to get outside!

Yup, you heard it here first - 
I, the lover of all things winter - 
am starting to get a little itchy to get outside in the garden !  
I know, I can't believe it either. 
 I don't want heat or summer, mind you, 
but a nice spring day to putter outside might be nice !

It's been a difficult winter here on Lavender Hill with my Jacob
so sick and then having surgery.
He seems to be on the upswing at last, though, 
and feeling stronger every day.

I've done lots of hooking and stitching... 
but not so much house fluffing.  Just haven't been in the mood.
But I'm hoping a good dose of SPRING CLEANING 
might help me shift gears soon!

In the meantime this is what I've had on the hook:

Two custom orders:

finishing up this Bohemian Stripe.
I love all the different textures, stitches and colors -
speaks to my gypsy soul!

This one is definitely a different color story:

I'm a pastel type girly girl,
but it's fun to think outside my usual palette!

The latest Little Miss Shabby block came out this morning!

I can't wait to start stitching up #5.

I have a plan to make individual blocks in embroidery hoops, to sell.
I think they'd be adorable on a gallery wall !

I am glad to know things come into their place now. Wishing a speedy recovery to your child!

I like winter too... I am not an admirer of hot summer, which is approaching here in India.
I like the color sof your projects - very summery :)
