Come Ride With Me

What a fantastic week we've had! The weather is beautiful and warm. You know what that means......finally I get to ride my bicycle outside again! The 2012 season has begun and I'm off to a great start. OK...there's still tiny little patches of old, leftover snow laying around in the shady parts of the woods. No worries...I just ride right by. Enjoy these few pictures of my morning ride today. There', of course, lots more to see, but gee, I just don't seem to have the time to take pictures!

Balloons - Hardanger progress

Oh, I'm having such a great time working on this piece!

I am delighted with my stitching. I think all the practice in this technique lately has paid off.

Also, I believe the fabric has a higher count so the stitches are smaller. As you know, I sure like all those tiny stitches! I also like working with the pearl #8 varigated thread I've been collecting.

Another great thing about Hardanger is that it goes fast. The stitching is just about done. Then I do the cutting and wrapping. Stay tuned for more progress on this piece!
