A Bit of Everyhing!

In reading many of your blogs, it looks like good old Spring has made an appearance in many places.  We are still enjoying beautiful weather and thankfully we have had a bit more rain!(I imagine you never thought you would hear that from a person in the Pacific NW).  However, we really did need rain.
We took a short road trip a week ago.  I got some wonderful pictures of Mt. Rainier from the ferry.  I will share them with you.
 Finally, I won the LHN ornament from Mary Ann.  Her blog is called "Just Stitching."  It's a great blog so I suggest you take a look if you are not already  following that blog.
Last, I have had an unusual stitching problem occur.  I was making a wedding gift for a friend who lives far away.  I have never seen her home and I have no idea of the style.  I was trying to keep it very neutral so it would fit anywhere.  I am almost finished.  I woke up this morning and told my DH I don't like it and I'm thinking of buying them another kind of gift.  I'm pretty sure I will do that, just don't like the design at all.  I have never done that before. I usually love the pieces even more when they are finished.  Have you ever done anything like that??  I feel like I wasted a few weeks of stitching time! Oh well!
I hope you all have a great Sunday!!!!

I left this picture huge so you can see the Space Needle. I knew I was getting a good photo of the city but until I saw it on the computer, I didn't realize you could see the Needle!

Normal size photo of the city and Mt. Rainier.

Another of our volcanoes, Mt. Baker.

This is the reason for my trip to the city.  I found this little rabbit container at a thrift shop last Fall.  I think it was only $2.00.  There is a shop in Edmonds that has great silk things.  They fix the arrangement for free when you buy the flowers.

This is a very simple arrangement but it reminds me of Peter Rabbit.

Here is the first ornament in the 2015 series.  I used a  GA special edition red on the house.  It is stitched on a small piece of Lakeside Linen Sand dune 32 count.

Can you believe that the hydrangea on my porch is this full of leaves?!

I love the spring colors of this little Japanese maple.
Thanks so much for joining me today.  I hope your next week is full of sunshine!!
