Finished February Word Play

I had to show you some spring pictures I took today. This is the plum tree. I was thinking when I walked outside that it looked like a bride dressed in white. It just looks so pretty. It was warm today and the smell of flowers on the breeze just made me crazy. I even saw Mockingbirds fighting.

I finally finished my February Word Play and it isn't March yet. I liked this one because of the red. I like working with red. I bought this pattern from Country Stitches. I have March and I will start that tonight or tomorrow. With all of the birthdays we have in March, I don't know if I will get it finished before April.

Here is some more of the detail. I also changed the little hearts from white to red. I just liked red hearts better.
.This was fun to do except, I cannot spell chocolate to save my life. I could have been finished a week ago but I was looking at what I had done and sure enough I had even misspelled on this. So I had to rip it out and start over.
 I loved the little people and enjoyed stitching them. I just love when I do the faces because they look like tiny faces in six stitches.

I made some bird houses this week. This has been fun for me too. I start working on them and all kinds of ideas pop into my head.
It looks good hanging in the tree outside my bedroom. I don't know if any birds will live in it. I would like to have some orchard bees come take up residence but I don't know if they would.

I had some more pictures I wanted to show you but I have to wait. My husband is working from home tonight and me uploading pictures makes his work slow down. He is finishing up a two year project so I think his stuff is a little more important than mine.

I hop you have a nice Thursday. I will have my grandsons in the morning so Momma can go visit the baby doctor. It is never a dull moment around here.


  1. i like your birdhouse! and the plum blossoms are so pretty! :)

  2. Oh wow, that birdhouse is awesome! That's the kind of gourd birdhouse I've aspired to grow since I grew my first luffa. Your stitchery things are really cute, too! I agree, the red really sets it off.

    Didn't it smell heavenly today? I kept thinking of reasons to go outside and stand and sniff. All the orchards must be blooming.

  3. Great work on the Feb. word play! Love it! And that bird house is the best!! It looks super in the garden.

  4. You're stitches are wonderful! Love all the flower pictures you have on your blog! I'm so happy Spring is so near!!!! :-)

  7. I love your cross stitch, how inspiring and what is my excuse for not doing it, I don't have one!
    Oh the bird house, my mom has all these gourds and she was just talking this weekend about making bird houses, she saw one on Pinterest.

    Enjoy your grandchildren...your life is full and exciting..which is what it was meant to be

  8. Oh Kim, I love the blossoms and the gourd bird house. I hope that you get your wish with the bees taking residence in it.
