PK update and a surprise!

Happy weekend everyone! Our weather here isn't very happy - cold, and they even said the "s" word in the forecast. I sure hope not - I would like spring to stay around. Oh well, it is what it is. To update you on my progress on Peaceable Kingdom, I have finished the little boy in the blue and white shirt. Not much of him really shows up because there are other little people standing in front of him. I wanted to finish him up though, so I could easily see where to start the giraffe. Which, incidentaly is what the little yellow blob is above the kids heads. Who knew giraffe's had beards? I surely didn't, but this designer thought they did, so I went with it. I am hoping that I can get the giraffe done this week, but I am afraid that I won't get my Christmas Spirit chart done. Guess I did ask too much of myself this month. I think I forgot about what an affect good weather would have on my time - yard work ? What's that? I will try to remember that when I post my April goals next weekend. Now for some fun stuff!! When I came home from Louisville Thursday night, I had a surprise package waiting for me! When my DH first said I got a package I got paniced! Oh NO!! I thought I had screwed up and was supposed to have already sent out my exchange piece! But, the package wasn't from Washington, it was from Indiana! Diane, from Nan's Needlework Notions, sent me a surprise Easter present. When I opened it, I found the cutest little tulip pincushion you have ever seen! The perfect little spring piece to sit by my stitchy spot! Isn't it just darling? You will get to see it next week when I post my TUSAL. I think it deserves a place on honor in that picture! Thank you so much, Diane, I really do love it! Thank you all, too, for stopping by my blog and taking time to leave a comment. I thank you all for your comments on my All Year Long tree, but that was not my idea originally. I stole, no I mean copied, the idea from Faye at Carolina Stitcher. She has been showing hers for at least most of last year, and I thought it was a fantastic idea. And, I have loved doing it. So, until next time, have a happy, healthy, stitchy time!
