Volume 11 Issue 4, April 2014
What's New in April?
The geese are pairing up, and there are at least a dozen of them running up
and down the lane and hanging out in the pond. The ice is all gone from
the pond, but we are looking for another couple days of snow showers.
Spring is in the air! It is also all over the floor as the lane muds up and the
dog plays in the yard. I follow him with a mop!
It won’t be long before the birds start nesting and we have baby robins all
over the yard. In the meantime, I am waiting on the flowers to bloom. They
are blooming all over my work bench these days as I add pastel flowers to
my cane collection. We spent last month working on our counted cross
stitch site. www.x-stitch-patterns.com I did a lot of pattern redesign and
added quite a few new ones.
We also participated in gifting the stylist of 2 Broke Girls a bracelet to be
considered for an upcoming show. The new season of Hart of Dixie has
started, and we really hope they use our Lemon Drop necklace in an
episode. There are never any guarantees, so all we can do is hope.
Cellphone Charms: I am really enjoying getting some of my little charms out
and adding them to pretty much everything! This month is was slices of pizza
and a set of lips.
Bookmarks: Since I am always reading, I started creating bookmarks
for those of us who are bookworms.
Until next month,
Julie & Blu
Things to Look Forward To:
Watches: I will be doing more watches this month.
Counted Cross Stitch Patterns: I also have a lot of new counted cross stitch patterns to develop for our sister site www.x-stitch-patterns.com
Necklaces: I have a lot of new necklaces in the works that are simple chains.
Pushpins: Many more pushpins coming!
