Sew Red????






I just finished my second of the crazy 15 WIP pieces....Yes, I was crazy & signed up for the 15 new project challenge AND the 15 WIP challenge. The thing is.......I DO NOT have 15 WIP...well, I didn't before the 15 new ones!!!
Anyway, this is # 2 of the challenge finished. It is Sew Red by I-Stitch. I am not real fond of red, so I saw that someone else had done theirs in brown & pink, so that is what I went with. I used Dinky Dyes Madi's Rose & Choco Latte. I think I will make this into a needlebook or else a stitching journal. I haven't decided for sure yet.
I also am attaching part 3 of the Easter SAL from Novalee2. I love how this one is turning out....
My amaryllis plant now has 2 beautiful flowers on it, so I have attached a new picture of it. I have also attached a progress picture of my violet....more flowers coming, but none are blooming yet!! It is going to be so pretty!!!
The other pictures are out our back door the other night.....I love when the field crops are down & we can see the deer grazing the field....such a wonderful sight!!
I am having terrible email issues this week....people are not getting my messages & I am not getting people's messages, so if you have emailed me & I have not responded, this is probably why....just send it again or let me know you didn't get something from me...
thanks for looking & commenting & have a wonderful week.........this week is to be like spring here & I am SO READY!!!! I went for a walk today & it was heavenly!!!!

Wonderful view of the deer grazing at the field.

I love the Sew Red piece done in pink! Very pretty - I'm going to have to check that out. Lovely!

Great progress on the Easter SAL and your flowers are beautiful. Yeah for spring!

I love red but I must say I really, really like your soft brown and pick fiber selections. It really works well!

Oh, I really like the brown and pink, Shari! Great choices! Your SAL is looking so cute, too.

Now that is a lot of deer--every now and then we get a herd running through our back yard, but we never see them all stopped to graze like that.

I'm so happy that the weather is warming up tomorrow!! Of course, I have to work all weekend so I can't be outside enjoying it then...

Nice finish on Sew Red. I like the colors you used. It looks bigger than a needlebook cover! I have a cyclamen that is still blooming since Christmas that I am enjoying. But my snow crocus are up and blooming and I can see the tips of the hyacinth and daffodils now! My parents live in the city limits of Portage and they have had as many as 17 deer in their backyard at once!!!
