Spring Break Brings Rain

Hello my lovelies!

This is a fly by post.  There's a break in the rain and it's sunny now.  We have been waiting for 3 days to go camping, my hubby's crazy idea.  Before I left I wanted to do a quick post of a few things that have been going on. 

First, thank you all for your lovely comments and the time you take to do so.  I have been so remiss to respond but I plan to when I get back.  Yesterday, I tried using Feedly to visit everyone's blogs but I hit a button that wiped out my blog post count! I was not to impressed and ended up shutting it down.  I'm trying to use my blog reader on the side to catch up with people since me and Feedly are not talking to each other for awhile.

I mailed out three little packages two weeks ago and only one has arrived, in England.  The one to the States and UAE has not arrived yet.  Hopefully this week.  I forgot to take photos of all three...sigh.  Hopefully the recipients will take photos! **wink wink** I started my granny stripe last night and it's more a curly pink mess than anything interesting as of yet.


I made a teensy bit of progress on Magic Garden.  I'm letting dear Maggee catch up! Plus the fence is taking awhile to stitch up.


I tackkled that pesky peacock and have been making headway.  I want to start on other motifs so I'm trying desperately to finish him.



Knotgarden's progress is abysmal yet progress is progress!!


I'm also starting another Spring/Easter mailart exchange with Meari. I've got the fabric and patterns picked out to start when I get back. Pretty excited to see how this one turns out! There's also another few Raks I want to stitch up, start Sarah Chapple, work on my quilt (snorts...yeah right!), and continue working on my granny stripe.  Hopefully all will get done by the time Spring Break ends! I am always hopeful!!

Take care everyone! I'll be back with some photos of our trip.  Hopefully we won't be too cold out there....crazy man!!





 
Hugs from me and Titus,

Anne

You are definitely keeping your needles busy. Love the colors you've chosen for your Granny Stripe. Hope it's not too damp and cold camping. I am itching to get out and about myself but the snow and frigid air keep on. Supposed to reach below -20 tonight!!! This is CrAzY!

Maggee said...

Gee--I hope that you are having a warm camping trip! Not fun when it is cold! I enjoy seeing your progress on our SAL. Sadly I will not catch up, but I will finish it soon enough! Hugs!

Melanie said...

You are making good progress on these! :)

I like Feedly but ONLY for reading posts. You have to jump through too many hoops to try and COMMENT on blogs on the iPad on there for me. SUPER fiddly.

Hope you had a nice trip. :)

Scattered Threads said...

Hope you enjoyed your camping trip:). I love your bright colors of the yarn for granny stripe. It is very pretty. Nice progress on your crosstitch pieces too. Love the flower pics…sure does sing spring.
Thxs for stoping by my blog:)
Kind regards!

Karoline said...

Hope you had a good spring break. Your projects are looking lovely, great progress

Gillie said...

Ha! That fence was nearly the finish of me, lol! Love the springy pictures, wish it would come here in Michigan! The snow has nearly all gone though!

Carol said...

Since you wrote this almost a week ago, I assume you are back from your camping trip, Anne--hope the weather cooperated and you had a wonderful time with your husband and all that nature. I'm sure you got some wonderful photos.

I'm so sorry to hear about the Feedly mess! I've used Bloglovin' since the demise of the Google reader and find it very easy...

Love your progress on Magic Garden--it really is so cute and looks like it would be a fun piece to stitch... Thanks for the pretty flower photos. It's snowing here as I write this so they definitely lift my spirits :)

♥ Nia said...

I hope you had fun!! :D
Have you tried bloglovin'? It's pretty simple but it does the job ;) heheheh I've been using it since google reader went done, so far I'm pretty happy following my favorite blogs :)
Hugs&smiles to you!!
