A finish, a WIP and it's finally springtime!

On Dorine's birthday party Emma and Dorine made two lovely birdhouses. Come on birds, eat some peanuts!

Emma is helping her father with the new plants. Spring is finally coming along! Today the sun is shining again! It couldn't be better.

Yesterday evening I've finished the French Country Bunny from JWB Designs. I've bought this chart on the fair in Zwolle, together with the French Country Dog and others. I'm gonna finish this one as a pinkeep. So I spent the rest of the evening on Ebay and I was shopping the whole time. And I won different auctions: Pearl Head Pins, Assorted Eyelets and 20 (!) coulours of Silk Ribbon. Be patient please, when I finish-finish them, I will show the pictures. Special thanks to Patti from Legacy for the comic book boards and the skirtex. You will be the first one!

And ofcourse I've spent a lot of time on my modelstitching. De middlepart is going very slow, but I'm going there. The last part will be done very quickly.

No news about my father yet. He still spending his time in the hospital bed. His last walking around on his own was a week ago. Today we gonna speak with the doctor. I will keep you posted.

Thank you for coming along and your prayers. I really appreciate them and they give me hope.

The french country bunny looks great! And I can't wait to see the finish on your model stitching.
I haven't had much luck with bidding on ebay this year, congrats on your winnings :)
I hope the doctor brings you good news.

I've noticed you on several other blogs that I follow, and thought I would say "Hi". I enjoy looking at your WIP. I especially like the Doll House. Very cute! Spring is on it's way here as well, Yipee! Hope your father has a speedy recovery!

Isn't the weather gorgeous? It looks like some hard work got done in your garden. You couldn't send the girls over to lend me a hand, could you?
Your model stitching project looks intriguing! And your bunny is very sweet. Keeping your father in my thoughts...

I really like the bunny. Your model stitching looks so different - is this one of those fractuals? I've been intrigued by them! Hope your father was a swift recovery!

I REALLY like the bunny rabbit. I love stitching bunny rabbits. Any chance your girls could give me a hand on my garden please? Hope your dad gets better soon. Love Patti xxx

Hi Carin,

Sorry to read that your dad is ill. I hope you will soon get some good news from the doctor.
I like your French Bunny!

Carin, I'm sorry about your father! I have enjoyed reading your blog. I wanted to let you know that "Lo, How a Rose" was designed by Brightneedle, and is available in Better Homes & Gardens "A Cross Stitch Christmas: Celebrations in Stitches" (2001). It is a book that is easily found on the internet. I apologize that it took me so long to reply to your comment on my blog!
