What's Up Peeps!
It's Easter weekend and I remember as a child, hoping the Easter Bunny would put a package of those sugary, chewy, yellow morsels of candy goodness in my basket. I don't "think" I really liked them or had them at the top of my candy list but having Easter Peeps in your basket made it extra special. That, and of course, a chocolate Easter Bunny. How many of you ate the ears first? LOL!
I do hope each of you will remember the true meaning of this weekend. The day that all of our sins were paid for - the greatest gift we could ever receive.
Unfortunately, I do not have any stitching updates for the week. This week has been extremely busy at work and my goal each evening was to eat, take a bubble bath and visit dream land at a decent hour. I am happy to report, I succeeded that goal almost every night. My plans for the weekend are to do some makeup stitching and the project for the weekend is........get ready for it...........Paradise Lost! Yes, I am bringing it back on the Q-Snap. Hopefully, I will have a great picture to share next week.
Until then, I wanted to share a picture of a pattern that I got in the mail this week. It is called "Soar" by With Thy Needle & Thread. This sampler was "inspired by a family of eagles living in Iowa that captured the hearts of America". You can read all about the eagles, see web cams capturing the hatching of the little eaglets, etc by visiting Brenda Gervais' blog. This pattern is available only for a limited time - until the eaglets leave the nest - and portions of the proceeds benefit the Raptor Resource Project. I am hoping to stitch this up soon but seems like the Weeks Dye Works linen in Onyx is on backorder. Which means, I may have to do a little experimenting...thinking about dyeing my own fabric!!! Why not? It may work and it may not but it doesn't hurt to try. I'll keep you posted if I decide to. It's Easter weekend.....we're suppose to "dye" stuff - right?
Until we chat again, have a great weekend. Spend time with the ones you love and thanks for stopping by.
Hugs and Stitches!!
