Spring Flowers and Cross Stitch

I am so happy that many of you enjoyed the pictures of Seattle.  They were taken from a part of Seattle that is called West Seattle.  That area is great because you look back on the city plus it has a long walkway along Puget Sound.
I am working hard on "This is the Day" and appreciate your comments about it.  I have a picture taken yesterday .  As of today , the tree is almost done. I really like working on samplers so I'm enjoying it very much.  Plus the way this week has gone, the message is very important to me.
For all my stitching friends, JJ's Collectibles is having a great sale with 20% off all orders.  I expect to do some damage over there later today!
Most of the photos in today's post are things that are blooming right now in my yard.  Everything is such a beautiful shade of green! We have rain today, but that just makes things greener.(A good attitude for someone living in the Pacific NW)! I hope the pretty flowers bring a smile to your face .



 This bush has an amazing smell.  I have cut the little bunches of flowers and brought them in the house.









  Thanks so much for joining me and I hope your week-end is filled with things that make you happy!

  3. I got the e-mail notice about JJ's sale! Too bad I can't do linen yet....one day!

    I am in total jealousy over the flowers! Guess what? The weather people are predicting snow for this weekend. I just may creep into a hole and wait for summer. I don't think we are getting a spring this year. Feel bad for us! Have a great weekend!
