Dragging Spring inside on Slow Stitching Sunday

I was able to stitch a few more frames on my Lizzie Kate Spring Alphabet. It has been a busy running kinda week and I didn't expect that. Excuse the wrinkles and the grayness of the picture - it is a gray day outside.


I do love the little vignettes that are tucked into these samplers -- that basket will get some colored eggs, love the heart and key and those yellow galoshes are adorable!


In my continuing pursuit to drag Spring into my home no matter what Mother Nature has in mind I purchased these beauties yesterday at the grocery. The first daffodils I've seen this year!


I'm hoping that the 120 or so daffodil bulbs I planted will get a chance to show their stuff soon. However, today is not that day. It is gray and it has been icy and as I type this I can see snow out the window. Now the weather terrorists have backed off their original forecasts of up to a foot of snow, so that is good. Right now they are saying maybe only 1 to 3 inches, which sounds much better. Do you think they do this on purpose? Tell us we are going to get buried and then at the last minute revise their forecast and we are happy we only got a couple of inches. I'm focusing on the end of the week -- I saw mid 40's in the forecast. Now just need to get through the snow, ice and sub-freezing days this week.

Happy stitching-
carol fun
