This past week I worked on In the Garden.  I just love this one.  I am tempted to keep working on it over the long weekend.

We have had beautiful weather!  A little hot which means my grass is not growing.  (no rain either).  No big plans for the Holiday weekend.

 Here are my orts.  Lots of golds from Autumn Angel and light blues from Butterfly Fairy.

And here is my progress on Butterfly Fairy Day.  Finished another corner and started on the bottom right corner.

My baby birds have all flown away.  I have discovered chipmunks living in my garage.  I need to evict them this week.

I attended the Spring Festival fundraiser for the youth group at my brother's church.  I had lunch and watched a talent show.  All of my nieces and nephews took part (9 of them).  They are not shy.

Today I need to take my son to the art museum as he has a report to do.

 I worked on Autumn Angel by Joan Elliott this week.  I have the top all done and I now just need to finish the bottom of her dress.  There is also alot of beads that need to be put on before it will be finished.  But it will definitely get done this year.
I have a robin's nest at my house.  They have 3 baby birds.  This is the first time I have seen baby birds up close.  They hatched Wednesday and are just now starting to make peeping noises.  At first their bald heads would pop up with their mouths wide open.  It was like watching a puppet show.

 Since the last WIPocalypse update I started Bee Busy.
 I worked on Butterfly Fairy Day.
 I finished page 1 of Little Fairies at Play!  7,840 stitches complete and only 27 pages left!  Whoo Hoo.  I would like to get another page finished this year and a good start on the 3rd page.
 I also worked on In the Garden.
And yesterday my daughter and her finance graduated from college.  I spent the day with them helping them move into their new apt.  Every week it seems like I am busy doing other things and stitching time is hard to find.  I stayed up last night until 1am to finish my page on Little Fairies at Play.
