It's been awhile!

Hi there cloud friends!  I can't believe it's been almost a month since I posted.  We have been busy.  I blame it all on the PT I have to do each day.  I do exercises for about 30 minutes every day.  Every other day I add about 20 more minutes.  That plus walking on the tread mill or outside for 30 minutes a day.  Yes , it is all helping my back more slowly than I would like.  Considering what could have happened with this type of injury, I know that I am very lucky and try not to complain.  Well, on to more interesting things.
I am keeping up with the Santas. I even have March finished.  I decided that I want to have at least 5 little pillows for my bowl by summer so I have added that to the mix.  They will be patriotic/summer designs. I have started Plum Street's " A Ghoultide Welcome"  for my long term design. That is quite a project.  The house alone is 81 stitches across!  Finally, I have added some pretty flowers that are blooming right now. 

 This is Happy 4th by Threadwork Primitives.  I used linen and thread that I had in my stash. The reds were DMC 355 and 356. I'm not sure about the blue and brown. I put them back in the stash already.

 This is by Little House Needleworks, the Sampler Tree Ornament Series. This one is called 
"Deer Valley Inn."
 Here we have a Santa from Book #36.  I changed the color of his suit and put in  snowflakes instead of the date and an anchor.

 The garden is really looking like Spring.

I love this double Hellebore.
I hope you are all doing well and  thank you so much for joining me today!!
