Why, hello there!

That is all the stitching that has been done in ever so long - I almost didn't recognize it! All the way back in January, I signed up for a BAP with this Bridget Powers sampler. I obviously have a B-A-way to go! I was stitching it while watching an older miniseries on Netflix about Edward the VII. I thought it was quite appropriate.
We celebrated my birthday last month with a chocolate cake with peppermint butter cream frosting made by my sister. It was every bit as good as it looks and sounds!
Easter Day dawned fair and bright.
We celebrated my niece's birthday. This year my sister's got squished in between.
false indigo is beginning to bloom...
It's cloudy out, so maybe I will be able to stitch today. There has been so much to do in the garden lately!
