A finish and IHSW

It's been ages since I last posted.  But I do have a finish to show you.  And yes, it's another Christmas finish!
I just could not resist stitching this one.  It's called "Mine!" a design by Michelle M Lash of Brittercup Designs.  I've always wanted to stitch this kitty and I've got my eye on some more of her designs.

I received a lovely Easter Card in the post from my friend Mary Grace in Malta.  It's a design by Ellen Maurer-Stroh of chicks and forget-me-nots in a wreath.  She also sent me some more of her wonderful crochet, a frame and some DMC threads/floss, which was a wonderful surprise.

April's IHSW is this weekend??!!  (April 20th-22nd.)  Do come and join in the fun.  Just click here to put your name on the list.  It's a real incentive to get some stitching done over the week-end.

I've been out and about taking lots of photo's at Whirlow, although it did rain a bit.  But I thought you might enjoy these.

Raindrops on Tulips.

Lambs and sheep.
Hens, Cockerels and a Turkey.
Spring Flowers.

Snoozing duck.
Pair of Mandarin Ducks.
Reflections in the pond.  Don't know what this plant is called.  Anyone know?

Until Next time, Happy Stitching Everyone
