Next page please

My fingers are itching to start the next page of Large Cross-stitch #1. Since it is no longer a secret to my son, I will now be referring to it as Baker Beach. 
This is where I was last week:
This is where I am as of today. I have less than 100 stitches on this page. Only four different colors to stitch in that confetti of spaces near the bottom. I hope I find the time for some slow stitching to finish up this page today.
 I am joining Kathy today to share that Slow Sunday Stitching. Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are stitching.

Spring has finally sprung here on Long Island. Not all of my daffodils are in bloom, but this rogue plant in front of my porch is in full bloom.
I also set my Easter tulips on my front steps. 
They are a pretty welcome every time I come home.

That is all for now. I am going to a local quilt show today. I hope to have plenty of pictures to share this week.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Wow this is really coming along! I remember a while back seeing it - now it must almost be finished!!

  2. Cathie, You are rocking your cross stitch project seriously!!! I love how it is turning out! Love your tulips too.. and those rogue buttercups are so nice. Thanks for sharing :) Kathi

  3. That is a beautiful cross stitch piece!! And it looks like you're almost done. We're still at the point where the crocuses are the only thing in bloom near our house. But it's warming up, and getting better.

  4. Enjoy the quilt show!
    Hope you can finish up the page when you get home all inspired and ready to stitch!

  5. Your stitching is looking really nice , love all your flowers and so happy spring is now with you hugs.

  6. Your stitching should not take too long to finish up! Then, on to the next page! We have a few crocuses in bloom but the daffodils should be coming along soon.

  7. no daffodils over here but I'm glad you have them! Love that the secret is out and the next page is to be started.

  8. Your piece is moving along nicely! I'm sure you're as glad to see the spring flowers as I am--it was a very long wait this year :)


Thanks for your comments! I love to hear from you.
