Finally, enough time to post pictures!
This is the finishing I did last weekend. I think they turned out pretty nicely.
From the top, there is a pretty Easter freebie. I backed it with pretty Japanese-style chrysanthemum fabric in spring colors. It's on my Easter tree. The BOAF freebie cat is backed with orange fabric and edged with Victorian Motto Shoppe hand-dyed ric rac. If you have not treated yourself to her wonderful trims, treat yourself! The bottom ornament is from a Christmas issue of TGOS. I will miss that magazine immensely. It was an easy finish and I like the effect.
My pretty tulips. This is probably a week old, and they've been blooming like mad since then. DH spread mulch in the bed to make it look a little nicer, and I put an Easter flag out. I pulled up this evening, and felt such a sense of pride in my beautiful flowerbed. Our home looks so much more like a family house now, with a little whimsy.
And my WIP, Hearts of America. It is quite wrinkly and will remain so til it's finished.
I can not wait til this thing is done. How does that song go, "I don't like you, but I love you?" That's how I feel about this. I thought I'd be further along, but I've been fighting with this computer for 45 minutes, so have not made a lot of progress tonight. Hopefully I can get some done before I go to bed.
