Hi Everyone!  It has been awhile since I posted!

Spring is here in south Texas and we are enjoying temperatures in the 70's and 80's.  This is such a wonderful time of year.  When I walk outside my door the beautiful scent of orange blossoms is the first thing that greets me.  (Along with my two cats, who are always impatiently waiting for breakfast, lunch or dinner :))  I live next to an orange grove!

Although I do not have any finished designs to show you today.  I have been working on serveral, one is still in the design stage and the other two are slowly but surely being stitched by me!
As you have probably noticed by now when you see my designs, I always try to put an encouraging or light hearted message on my designs.  It is something that I decided to do when I first started designing.  I know that you like these messages too because of the number of charts that have sold for Live Simply, Love Generously, Speak Kindly and Care Deeply.  My very first designs continue to do well a year after they were published!  One of my very favorite things are the "Fruits of the Spirit"... Love, Peace, Faithfulness, Joy, Goodness, Gentleness, Patience, Self Control, and Kindness, so I am working on a series of designs that will include these.  As I mentioned before, the first one is still in the design process.

Another project that I have had in my work basket is a small needle and thread case that is being stitched using spring colors with lots of flowers and sampler motifs.  it is almost stitched, but since finishing is not my thing it will have to be sent out to get finished.  I also have an ornament that did not make it to get finished before Christmas that is called " Snow Birds".  I will also send this one out for finishing.  I know some of you stitch ornaments all year long so I am not going to worry that Christmas has long will be an early start for next year!

And finally, I have another small sampler that uses the alphabet in a very fun way!  Oh to get all of these completed... but that is part of the fun of it all.

I will close this time with a picture and message from my last design!  Hope you have a great week!
