Spring has Sprung!

Spring has hit the South!  Everything is green with pollen and thus allergies have kicked into high gear!  The weather has been gorgeous but I can only venture out for a few minutes at a time before I start sneezing.  Breathing through my nose is non-existent at this point and my new best friend is my box of Kleenex!!!  But I'm not complaining!  I am loving the warm weather!  I was even able to get out and plant some new flowers this past weekend!  Got the hanging baskets out on the balcony again!  Yay!

I've been working on several projects!  I love making progess and letting people see it!  I look forward to the finished products!

Baby Quilt
I've been working on Cassady Hope's baby quilt.  She turns 2 at the end of March and I really hope to have it finished by then!  By making sure that I work on it a little bit every day, I've made great progress!

I've finished all the satin stitches in the border!

I was home sick (allergy related) one day last week and finished the puppy dog and two small flowers:

This weekend, while listening to LSU whoop up on Holy Cross, I started working on the bucket.  I didn't finish because I was pretty restless but I came close.  Just a few more crosses and then the back stitching and it will be over.

Dragon Knot 2
I've also been working on Dragon Knot 2 (HAED).  It is coming right along!  I've finished another page (it wasn't a full page of stitching).  I hope to finish this project this year (yes, I've been saying that for the last 2 years!).

The Butterfly Fairy
Yesterday was my sister's birthday so I started on her next present.  The Night Butterfly Fairy.  I took a picture but it came out extremely dark so I am going to pass posting a progress picture at this point.  It wasn't much of a start anyway, just a teeny bit of the upper left corner!  I'm hoping to finish this for Christmas! 

LSU Baseball
Woo hoo!  The Tigers are starting the season off undefeated!  Yay!  They are crushing their opponents!  I'm hoping that this continues on into SEC play!  They have played 7 games so far and have reached double digits in each game except 1.  Pretty impressive!
