A Cross Stitch Post

I want to thank all of you who commented on my last post.  You said such nice things about my daughter's work.  The good thing is , she is just as sweet as she is talented.  We both appreciated your kind words.  I have been busy this week as we are expecting a guest from out of town.  I tend to let the guest room and bath just sit there.  There was actually dust in the bath tub!! So we have been busy with the house and the yard.  Did I actually complain about the heat a few posts ago???!!! We are having snow at the pass levels today.  Down here the temps are in the 50's and rain.  This will not be the best weather for the SBA's Granddaughter's visit. So I'm  hoping for nicer weather! We are looking forward to spending several days showing her around. 
Even though I have not posted much cross stitch, I have been working on a few projects. 

 All finished.!  The good news is I have an old frame we are going to use.  Hopefully it will be framed by the end of the week.  The picture is a bit washed out looking.  The colors are brighter and prettier than the photo shows. I plan to hang this in a place where its message will speak to me daily. The horrors of the last few days serve to remind us all how wonderful an ordinary day really is.

 I have a good friend who shares all her stamping supplies with me .  She has a cute little black cat named Cloe.  I thought this was the perfect little thank you gift. We put it in a black table top frame.

I  love my current project.  Many of you will recognize J.M. Gardner 1888 by Country Stitches-With Thy Needle & Thread.  The minute I saw this one on other posts, I knew I wanted to stitch it.  I have to keep moving as our little Granddaughter is scheduled to arrive on June 6!  I haven't started on her sampler!We will probably not get to see her until July sometime so I will get busy on that project soon! 

 Can't resist sharing a few bird pictures.  I just love these little hummingbirds!

Have a good week!
