Better Late than Never!

Hey everyone! I had intended to do this post on Monday but here I am on Friday making time to get this post out there. 

Last Sunday I completed April Showers
Freebie from Needle Bling Designs
28ct African Daisy Hand dyed Jobelan
and the called for threads (CC, GAST, WDW)
Started - 4/23/2013
Completed - 4/27/2013
abt. 900 stitches
Sorry the picture doesn't show that the fabric is actually a light yellow. Because I completed this at the end of  April I will get it finished so it can go in my Spring basket next spring.  We didn't have any spring showers this year, we had spring snow.

Well I did pretty good on stitching just about every day in the month of April. There were only 8 days that I did not pick up a needle and thread. Two of those days I worked on my craft room trying to get stuff put away again. And I bought a new book shelf to store all my magazine's and leaflets and hard covered books
The little book shelf was already in my craft room I just did some moving around and got it looking all neat and organized. (I'm not going to show you the rest of the room at the moment because that is still a mess)

So for the month of April I did a total of 4802 stitches. Here's the breakdown:
Poinsettia House - 1996 stitches 
(finished and posted pic on and earlier post)
Spring Shower - 900 Stitches 
(finished and pictured above)
Blooming with Inspiration - 948 Stitches
(still working on this one)
Green Quaker - 958 Stitches
( this one is also a work in progress)
But I do have a picture of Green Quaker to show where I left off.

Well that is about all the stitching stuff I have for now so I am going to leave you with a couple of pictures of our new born calves. We are waiting on the last 4 calves to be born and then our calving season will be done.

Happy Stitching

Congrats on your pretty spring finish! What a nice idea to have a themed basket for each season or holiday. It's amazing how you keep track of how many stitches you do each month. What is the highest amount you've done in a month? Great job organizing your books and magazines. I need to organize my stash too.
