Flowers, Fawns, and Easter SAL





My crocus outside is SO CLOSE to being totally open!!! I opted to take a picture today so I could post it with my other updates. It could be a while before I have another blog update & they will probably be done blooming! I honestly do not know where this bulb came from. I never planted crocus at this house.....and I just have the one...
I finished my second fawn last night. I like this one so much better than the first one! You can see his eye ball for one thing!!! Everything just looks so much clearer to me.
Also, I forgot to update with the Easter SAL last week...I did stitch it, but didn't post the picture. So, this weeks picture is week 1-5, with parts 4 & 5 being new.
My husband got my frame finished for my LHN Monthly Sampler finishes. I have stuck the April piece in to show how it looks, but I am going to get glass for this one, so it isn't hung yet.
I hope everyone has a great week....thanks for stopping by & for commenting. I appreciate it so much.

Your lone crocus is probably the work of a squirrel. They (and the rabbits) love crocuses. They probably dug up someone's crocus bulbs for a snack and buried it in your yard, and it bloomed before they could come back for it. (One of my neighbors has a tulip that blooms smack in the middle of her front yard!) My back yard is often littered with half eaten bulbs. Squirrels! {shakes fist}

Nice progress on the Easter SAL. I can see this deers eye too! Glad you're much happier with it. Love the crocus. It's been so cold the past week, I don't even want to go out and see what's growing!

I just think a crocu is so sweet. Back East we had them spread around the front lawn and they would bloom just in time! Enjoy...I like this deer too.

What a fun surprise the lone crocus is! I agree with Anna's post - those pesky squirrels! AGH!

Wonderful progress on your Easter SAL and the frame you DH made looks great.

I can see why you wanted a lazy weekend. Good work

Denise said...

He made you a rough frame - I like the rustic look!

I have no spring flowers :( Tell the squirrel thank you!

And your other stitches look great!

Beth said...

All your stitching looks fantastic. And you are right, this does look much more like a fawn. Your DH did a great job on the frame - lucky you to have a framer in the family!!

Carol said...

Oh, I agree, Shari--this little fawn looks much more "fawn-like." What a cute piece...

Love your SAL progress and your lone crocus--better one than none (like me!) And your husband did a wonderful job on your new frame as usual :)

Have a great week!

Your Wips are looking great and i totally agree with you, sometime's you just really need the right threads to work with otherwise it just does not look good.
i love to see more of your garden.

Hugs Yvon.

Beautiful work and flowers!

I like the second fawn better, too.

Your SAL looks pretty, Shari.

Ahhh, signs of spring. Gotta love it!

Julie said...

The fawn looks lovely as does your easter sampler piece, this is such a pretty design

I love crocus, i have a garden full of them

Lovely frame made by DH for your super stitching

Lynette said...

I love the frame that Duane has made Shari. Is your plan to change the design in the frame each month? That's what I want to do with my PS season samplers (changing them every season of course!).
I agree that the second fawn looks much better!

Mylene said...

I like the second fawn better and your SAL is looking beautiful.
The lone crocus looks lovely and hope it stays longer.
Duane did a great job with the frame, love it!!

Lizy said...

I love the April piece (that's my birthday month - so I am partial to it)
Your hubby certainly made a lovely frame ;)

Wonderful stitching! My irises are just starting to peek out of the ground I can't wait for spring and warmer weather!

Rita said...

Everything is beautiful!

I love crocuses. When we lived "up North" they always were the first sign of spring to me. We don't have them down here and I miss them.

Lovely stitching - I don't think I've ever done any Easter stitching - maybe I can put that right next year - bit too late this year :)

Sue said...

The flowers and finishes are great Shari; love them both!
