I want to take the time to say hello and welcome to my new followers.I am so happy and honored to have you following my little blog.To all those folks that left comments on my last post,thanks so much for all of your sweet comments.I did try and reply but my email was doing weird things and I finally threw my hands up in the air and quit trying.I was afraid that I might send some bug or something to you.
This is one of the things that has been keeping me busy.I apologize about the poor pictures but she just would not be still.She is hopefully going to be going back outside this weekend or the beginning of next week.She is a super sweet little goat.Folks may I introduce Penny......
I will try and get a better pic when I take her outside.She was wanting to run and play this morning.
I have been dreaming of warmer days and long walks in the woods.All that thinking has made me want to work on a few Spring goodies. Even though I have been sick I still have managed to do a few things,so stick around if you would like to join in my show and tell.
My first project was a few wool eggs.I used a pattern from Keri of Calico Rabbit and changed it up a bit to make it my own.The rabbit was her patten but the nest and basket of flowers are my designs.It is a fun egg to make and so easy.
The next is a cross stitch design by subrosa,it is a really sweet design and fun to stitch.
Another project was cross stitch design that was offered free by cosmichandmade.com.I took certain areas of the design to make a small cupboard tuck .I also added the wool strawberry.It turned out kind of cute.I plan on displaying it with bowl of wool strawberries,just haven't had time to make them yet.LOL!
Keeping with the strawberry theme is another strawberry that I punched using yarn and the oxford #10 punch needle.It looks like wool and is a large one at 7 inches long.LOL!

|Back side and no flash ,it is a really pretty prim color in life.|
I made this pillow by first punching the rabbit and then adding it to the wool background with the coordinating wool pennies.I then did the feather stitch to hide the seams where I added the wool strips around the rabbit background.

I did use a lot of my overdyed floss in this piece.It was a fun whimsical project.I did not want everything perfect so I just added the pennies randomly as I punched it.
Last project is one that drove me nuts! I still am not satisfied with it but called it quits,the thing almost went in the garbage can several times.
It is not as bright as it appears and I used mostly overdyed floss in this design.It is hard to see but the smallest bunny in the design is holding a flower.Last but not least of all is the best picture!
When I see these sweethearts I know that it will not be long till I am out enjoying the warm Spring sunshine.It was a long post and for that I apologize but I am trying to catch up and will in the coming days be catching up with all of you as well.For some reason I am having problems commenting on some of the blogs I follow using bloglovin.Is anyone else having that kind of problem.It is mainly blogs that open up a new page for you to leave your comment,any help would be wonderful.
Have a wonderful day and weekend friends!Be blessed,Jen
