Well, I am making some progress. I have been working on this at appointments. I have all the parts in this Vera Bradley box. It makes it easy to quickly dump it all in and take off for whatever activity is next. I still have the bird to do and then beads and back stitching.
It is amazing how people smile when they see stitching. I get smiles and kind remarks. I often get the comment "My mother used to do some of that," It makes me laugh.

On the medical front, we met with one of the doctors today. I like him. A treatment plan is being put together and there is plenty of reason for hope. Thank you everyone for your prayers and concerns.

Thank you all for the comments and emails concerning my husband. We are marching through a number of tests. We are hoping for good news next week when the doctors pull all the results together and decide how to attack this problem.

Thank you all for the wonderful comments and emails. I feel blessed to have so many people pulling for us. Patience is a virtue. I need to find some more patience. Stitching does help fill the time. Our weather in the Northeast has turned summer type warm. It was nice to sit out side and enjoy the wild life while I was stitching today.

I like the specialty stitches in this design. The colors are great for autumn. I need to do some digging and get the four seasons together for a photo.
What to do next? I am not sure what I will work on next. I will have to go stash diving to discover something new.

I did finish the tree leaves. Then I worked on the border. The acorns still need back stitching and there are specialty stitches for the apples. Also there is some over one animals to do. The border is well on it's way to being complete. It is certainly coming along.

Sweet Spring is now complete. It was a rainy spring day which was perfect for working on something colorful. The little charm is a lady bug on the plaid flower. I do believe I will have to work on Autumn just because it is the last one I have in this series. Summer was done years ago. I will be challenged to find Summer. I want to finish them as stand ups.
I did spend some time working on my stash list. Oh My Gosh!! I have so many things I want to stitch!! There is not enough time. I am also dreaming of stash shopping. I signed up for a festival in Nashua, NH the end of April. I am waiting to hear if I was able to sign up for the classes I picked out. I have my fingers crossed.

Wild Winter by M Designs is complete. I have to admit the colors are a bit crazy but fun for the winter season. The deer is stitched over one.

The sun was just so inviting. We took a trip to the main part of town and checked out the park. The snow was melting everywhere. This time of year the lake if frozen solid - but not today.

This the view outside my back porch this morning. We have had even more snow since. It was a perfect snow day. I have been stitching, napping, and just enjoying the day.
