I have been putting a few stitches in since my last up date but not as many as I would have like to.
First up is Blooming with Inspiration
Just got the red boarder and started one of the flowers done. not much done put I hope to pick it up again and work on it after I finish up a project I started on the 25th.

The last line that I have to stitch on this piece is
Forever in my Heart.
I should have it completed sometime today, I already have the frame for it, so a finish is in sight.
Thursday my sister, niece & great niece went to Pella, Iowa to visit my other niece and to attend the Tulip Festival. But the tulips had already bloomed and so we didn't get to see very many flowers this year. But we had a great time spending time together and spoiling the baby. The following pictures are from our weekend together and some are from the parade that we watched on Saturday.

Well these are only a few of the pictures that I took from our weekend in Pella. The time there went way too fast. I got back home on Sunday evening so Monday was spent cleaning and catching up on laundry and today I need to go and stock up on groceries.
Hope everyone has a great week!
