Be True

I'm currently stitching Little House Needleworks "Be True" and am having such a fun time with it. I am stitching it on 32 count Natural Raw linen and am using DMC. I don't usually share progress pictures, but some of you have been itchin' for some stitchin' pictures so I thought that I would share. It seems that I have my stitching mojo back for now, so I am pleased as punch to have something to show for a change. I was working on another piece from a 2007 magazine, but the angel I was stitching and I had a falling out of sorts, so I picked up something else so as not to loose my groove.

I went to my Garden Club luncheon yesterday and had a wonderful time. The lecture was on the urbanization of natural habitats in Florida and was very informative. The actual lunch was delicious and consisted of a strawberry and chicken salad with candied pecans and goat cheese. We had warm banana bread for dessert. So yummy! I could have that everyday. Fernandina Beach hosts The Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival the first weekend in May. We went to a spaghetti dinner at the local Methodist church last night and had a great time. Over the weekend there will be a pirate invasion of the city, fireworks, arts and crafts and lots of shrimp. Sounds fun! If we attend, I will take some pics to share. Have a great weekend!

I have just started my love affair with Little House needlworks, but I have a feeling it's going to turn into an obsession. I love the project that you're working on. Thanks for sharing a progress pic.

I think I would have loved your Garden Club lecture - sounds very interesting. And lunch sounded delicious too!

Have a great weekend
