Back To Normal!

It's been a week since we got home from our trip.  It has been a busy week getting everything back to normal.  While in Alabama, I shop at a great little LNS.  It's called Patches and Stitches.  Of course, I had to add a bit to my stash! (picture of goodies below)
I heard something interesting yesterday.  I have shown you some Spring photos.  Well, according to the news, we are one month ahead of where we usually are at this time of year.  That would be good but there is a concerned side.  First, with so little snow in the mountains , we are worried about water and fires this summer.  It is also possible for an Arctic blast and that could do lots of damage to plants, especially the apple and cherry crops.  I know that I have no control of the weather, so it is best not to worry! It is  for this kind of situation that I stitched, "This is the day the Lord has made.  Let us rejoice and be glad in it."  It has been to pretty not to enjoy the day.  In fact, I have a picture of a sight outside my family room window.   Enjoy it at the end of the pictures.

 Here is the stash! Left to right-The Mary Jane Smith Sampler, Quaker Star, August's Poppy, and "Eye on the Sparrow" plus Classic Colorworks English Ivy and Queen Bee.

 This is a McIntosh Sampler.  I love the colors and the design. It's going on my to do list very quickly!

 What to do when you are traveling on a plane for a total of 15 1/2 hours??? Stitch this huge white house!!

 Sorry for the wrinkles.  This will be finished soon.

 Beautiful hellebores from the garden!

On Sunday morning, I looked out the window in the family room.  I noticed a white spot on the top of a pine tree behind a neighbor's yard.  We got out the camera and this is what we saw!

Thanks so much for joining me today and I hope you are all having a great week!
