Come visit with me as I stitch and craft my way from one Christmas to the next - I like to have Christmas projects close by me all year. I have a particular fondness for Santas and Angels. If you have the time, leave a comment so I know you've visited.

Easter Blog Hop

Its Good Friday here in Australia, and I am following Jo's instructions for the Easter Blog Hop (check it out here).

My letter is:


Find your next letter at http://www.littlestitchesart.com/




But before you move on to the next blog, I would like to show you one of my favourite framed cross stitches.  It sort of meets Jo's instruction for inclusion, as it always makes me think of Spring.  This piece was a round robin effort, and it has been half way around the world, having been worked on by stitchers in California USA, Ontario Canada, Victoria BC Canada, and Australia.  It hangs in my study, right near my desk, so I enjoy it every day.  It is one of only four artworks that keep their place in my house all year (the other three are L&L Angels).  All of the other framed works get packed away each year for the Christmas season, but my Baltimore Album Quilt stays put.




Enjoy the rest of the Easter Blog Hop!

Very pretty round robin piece! I have a treasured round robin, too...I always say it is one of the things I would grab before running out the door in case of a fire! Happy Easter!
