A Little Progress

     Yeap! I've gotten back into the habit of reading the Daily Bread as I have my first cup of coffee in the morning and it's good to be keeping up with it again.  I've decided that since I have that down good now, that I would add another little thing to my morning routine, and that being, to stitch some.  Whether it be for a few minutes or an hour.  Yesterday morning I did get in a half hour and then this morning a full hour, and I can see some progress on this small piece I'm doing.  This is a picture from 123 Stitch and what the completed piece will look like.

And this below is what I have done so far.  It's progress for the Year of Finish, so I'm pleased.

     It was so pretty out this morning that I read and stitched on our back porch.  So while I stitched I listened to the birds and watched them at our feeders.  Also watched the Bluebirds feed and go in and out of their nesting boxes.  I am so very blessed! Took a picture also of my first Spider Wart in bloom.  Years ago, I was trying to find just one of these so I could put it in one of our gardens.  Now....I'm trying to give some away every year.  They multiply like crazy!

    To let ya'll know! I have a new lovely follower here! We're up to 95! Please now! If you can drop over to see Lesley at one of her blogs.  The first being where she shows you her beautiful cross stitching and some of her knitting as well.  Yes! She's a very sweet and talented lady. The second blog is full of her beautiful knitting.  Oh just wait until you see it! Very inspiring.  Her two blogs, you can find here.  You'll love them both I think. 

     Headed outside to work a little in my gardens.  Ya'll have a blessed day and don't forget to "Feel the Colors".
