So inspired by ladies in our embroidery world, Day 3 of stitching February Paper Ladies..

Ahhhh Spring is certainly evident around the world on our ladies embroidery blogs....although we are still very deep in snow, the sun shines bright and I have fresh white floral bouquets in my home.

I love white flowers....I have an all white garden in the spring and summer, and I can envision it already.... For the meantime, my beloved picked up my most favourite flowers some white daisies...so I thought I would share...




I managed to brush her skirt with a very special brush...and add more roses to her top 
and sleeves....I will try to complete her top today...
This is our garden from last spring....it will be like this again
but larger bushes... ( added my daisies to the mix) 
These bushes are called Viburnum!


I did not stitch on Friday and Saturday as we were on a date in Toronto, seeing the Piano Guys and they were amazing. At one point they were talking about the best audience they had performed for...
so we are thinking ....politicians, white house, some celebrity...turned out a NURSING HOME....and they had this video that had us all reaching for our heart....It was very touching...
What a great way to connect with your audience...They made us laugh, tear and I don't think there was one person in that audience of thousands who did not feel the love of MUSIC.....

They played the piece I showed the other day, and many favourites....I will add another today for your viewing.... It called a "Thousand Years"...they played this...it is beautiful.


I did get some stitching done this morning to share and some of my favourite floral pieces....I am so inspired by our ladies photos....Take a peak at their blogs on my side bar....

Here is what I am noting.....WE share the love of threads, flowers, beauty, we all have a unique style, we all have our favourite designers, our favourite threads, our favourite notions and we share with all of you...WE come together united in LOVE.....Gosh how our world could learn from us ......

Maybe we should be teaching everyone how to embroidery, cross stitch...teach everyone how to slow down the pace and enjoy the view that connects us all together....



Jon ( pianist) needed  a break and decided to cross his arms and still play the piano not missing one key..... Steven, ( cellist) was taking  a breather wink....





            



Enjoy your day, I am returning to my kitchen...doing some baking for my Beloved's office staff...
Lemon loafs, bran muffins and some chocolate chip cookies..then I will get back to some stitching....

In stitching warmth..


fyi this morning there was an outage to 1/3 of customers..
for 8-10 hours our blog disappeared...I did not worry
as this has happened before....
thanks for the many notes wandering "what happened"
wink...

  23. Sono incantata. Il tuo giardino è stupendo, un sogno.
    Ed il ricamo è un gioiello prezioso, quelle piccole rose sul vestito della lady sono delle gemme....la gonna spazzolata è davvero un'idea meravigliosa. Credo che ti copierò l'idea. Sei un'ispiratrice, una musa. Grazie per condividere queste meraviglie. Un abbraccio e buona giornata
    Giò

  24. The Piano Guys are a local treasure. I saw Jon Schmidt in concert many times before he joined up with Steve. What a talented pair they are. They have an annual concert at a place near me called Thanksgiving Point. It is an outdoor venue with a waterfall for a backdrop. Very inspiring. Everyone in Utah is proud to claim them!
