May 1st Already???

where has the year gone? I cannot believe it is already the first of May....
The college our son graduated from in Dec. has already had their spring graduation.
The public schools will be out at the end of this month or soon after.
The weather is starting (for the second time) to warm back up.
BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY: The HUMMINGBIRDS are BACK!!!!! I was sitting in my rocker earlier & there they were!!!! Taking a very long drink. I told the little guy that I babysit for that they must have just arrived from their long journey & were very thirsty.
Onto stitching. I have two pieces to show updates on today.
The first is my Winter Sunset Cottage piece. I am loving working on this & I sure wish I had more stitching time....but, I guess life does have other obligations, besides stitching!!!
The second is a finish!! I have finished the 3rd of 4 of this series......the only one left is the Candy...I will work on it soon.

I hope you are all having a great week....thanks for stopping by & for the kind comments.....they are all read & appreciated.

Beautiful stitching, Shari!

Lizzy, I haven't seen any hummers in TX either...I thought it was just b/c I haven't been spending time by their feeder. :-(

Carol said...

Such a cute finish, Shari and your progress on the cottage is wonderful. Never enough hours in the day are there?

Enjoy those hummingbirds--haven't seen any around here yet and today is dark and gloomy :(

Great progress on the cottage Shari. Congrats on the finish. It looks yummy.

Is the cottage the free kit you got? Cute little finish too. I have seen hummers around here, but when I hang a feeder they never feed at it and just around my annuals! Loved the 80 degrees today!

I know Shari, this year just seems to be flying in. Such a cute finish and love your cottage WIP.

Mylene said...

The cup cake looks good enough to eat! Great job on it. Great progress on your WIP. I look forward to seeing more progress on that one.

I ask myself the same question all the time. I have the impression that early spring was just yesterday, and now everything is deeply green and the grass is high and the tulips are nearly gone already.
We don't have hummingbirds here but I'll see them soon when I will have my next trip to the US.
I love that Winter Cottage piece. Very nice progress!
