Spring is coming, wahoo!

Hey ya'll...what is new with you? Since I went back to work, it's been busy, busy! Mon thru Fri, from before dawn to after dusk, driving back and forthj (35 miles one way), fixing dinner when I get in,  because I do enjoy cooking and my husband doesn't. Laundry on the weekends, cleaning know, the things we all do. I guess since I haven't worked for several months, it's kicking my behind a bunch, lol!
15.5" long x 13" wide x 5" tall.

In the meantime, I have decided to drag out my UFO's and either DO THEM or lose them. 1) is a needlepoint of a rose bouquet on a soft pink background. I did the background, the roses were already done, and had intended it for an old lady footstool because I think they are cool and I have always wanted one. So I did it! Yep, just jumped in and did it. I am so glad I did, I love it! Very first-timer-on-a-footstool but I will always treasure it. Did I mention that I had actually done the needlepoint @ 16 years ago! I just needed a wee bit of a push to tack it down!

Now, what's next for my list....we shall see tomorrow. Have a great night, Elaine


  1. We need a photo of your footstool. I would love one of those. I'm pretty sure I remember doing needlepoint for one that my mother had...years ago.... I wonder what happened to it.

  2. I wanna see!! I look for those everywhere I go, and everybody but me finds them. Good for you on finishing it - I've missed you!

  3. OMG, girl, I have one of those that is at least 25+ yrs old !!! Can't wait to see what you do..

  4. Such lovely stitching! It's always great to get those UFO's out of the way! blessings,Kathleen
