Easter Stitching

EASTER EGG

On March 4, I finished stitching this sweet little Easter design by Maria Diaz.  It’s from the book, Ultimate Cross Stitch Cards, Voilume 3 (2014).  I thought it was very cute and it stitched up pretty quickly.  I had to use a different shade of gray for my backstitch because one of the cats (probably KittyPuff) decided to play with the designated color; the skein was in a hopeless tangle, LOL.  I’m thinking about making this into a little cushion to hang from a door knob.

In other news, we’ve had about 10″ of snow here in Maryland.  Not as much as our pals up in New England, but still more than enough.  I love cold weather and snow (and sitting in a warm house, stitching), but even I am ready for spring.  The dogs are especially enjoying the deeper snow!  Gizmo is pretty-much buried in the stuff, poor little guy, but he bounces around and plays as best he can.  Bonny loves to race through the snow at top speed but, like Gizmo, she doesn’t want to stay outside too long.  The “new” dog, Mariska would stay out and play in the snow all day long, LOL; she loves to toss her toys around, “lose” them in the snow, and dig frantically to find them.  It’s hilarious to watch!

Whatever the weather in your neck of the woods, I hope you’re finding plenty of time for stitching!
