Gosh, it is hard to believe that it is already more than halfway through the month of April. Time is perpetually spinning faster and faster!
This weekend we spent in Louisville because Saturday was Thunder Over Louisville! This is the opening event in a two/three week Festival celebrating the Kentucky Derby which is held the first Saturday in May. Thunder is an Air Show that starts about 2 in the afternoon, and goes until 9 at night. Then comes the largest annual fireworks display in the country. It is really a wonderful event, and one I look forward to every year. This year, however, the weather was pretty miserable, and much of the Air Show could not be done because of a really low ceiling. But, we were there, freezing our tails off, and enjoying what was performed. And, this was the biggest of the Fireworks displays, and it was awesome. Where we watch it, you can FEEL the impacts of the fireworks exploding. Such a charge! Then, today, was a bridal shower for my son and his fiance. So, this weekend wasn't too stitchy productive.
But , I won't let you off with just that statement. If you are good enough to stay with me, I will show you how far I am with my goals. First, I have stitched two little ornaments for my All Year Long tree. The little chick and bunny come from the same leaflet that I found the Leprechaun Hat in for March. You will be seeing more from this leaflet as the year progresses. I find they are the perfect size for my little tree. I don't think I told you last month that the leaflet is a 1993 leaflet named Holiday Cuffs. And the designer is Jorja Hernandez. I stitched the chick on white aida, and the bunny on pale blue using DMC floss.
I should also give you and update on my Peaceable Kingdom project. I am sorry for the darkness of the photo, it is fairly late at night here. As you can see, I have made pretty good progress on the giraffe, and have done some of the backstitching on the little boy in the green outfit. This week, I hope to get the giraffe finished and more of the backstitching done. Next weekend being Easter, probably won't have much stitching time then so I am hoping to get some good evening stitching time.
I just had some really exciting news. A cousin from Sweden, who just made the familiar connection about two years ago. is coming to America in the fall, and is going to come to Louisville! It will be so much fun meeting him in person and showing him our area of the country.
Well, not a lot of stitchy news, but I thought I ought to try this posting of pictures through Blogger rather than Picasa. I hope this works! Thanks for your patience with me on these "issues". Until next time, have a happy, healthy, stitchy time!
