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!

Stormy City and a Cross Stitch Update

Thank you all so much for the very nice comments on my April Word Play.  I have finished May but I don't have a picture.  I plan on taking a photo after it is pressed.  It is still a wrinkled mess. I am not sure if I will stitch the June Word Play.  I have the PS June finished so I might skip the June one at least for the time being. I am back to working on "This is the Day."
The SBA had a big birthday on Sat. so we went over to the city for dinner. We went to West Seattle.  The restaurant had an amazing view of the city. It was a very stormy day up here so it was a day to get some interesting pictures of Seattle.  I hope you enjoy them.

 Huge dark storm clouds over the Space Needle.

 The sun was very low and shown on the lower parts of the buildings .

 This is just before we started home. Things had quieted down.

The border is finished.  I am working on the alphabet. I am using antique ivory linen that dark area is just a shadow.
I hope you all have a wonderful week!
