If they have HOLES, they must be X stitched and a Paper Ladies/April Update

We had a tender sweet EASTER, filled with memories
and a few KISSES....My beloved filled this gorgeous new LARGE coffee
cup with kisses.  Even though I am not as passionate about chocolate
as he is....it still filled my heart with warmth...

I spent some time repotting all of my seedlings into new pots...They fill every 
room in our home...many WHITE plants that will find themselves into our garden
this summer. In the meantime, another sweet bouquet was all we needed to remind
A summer that will be filled with many white FLOWERS.....

( before I forget...I thought this would be ideal....I set each pot into a plastic bag, 
this keeps the dirt and staining my window sill, and keeps them from drying out....) 

Now I did get a couple of bunnies by LINDT that has those sweet red ribbon' with bells
on them...WElll Sumatra took a shine to it and for a couple of minutes
kept her busy ....She is so funny...She loves to sit with me on my 
lounger, it is very long so we can both sit on it comfortably.
-so she usually cuddles up on the end there...
She seems to prefer watching me than television...

As soon as I mentioned her name, she looked right at me.....she so melts my heart....lol

OHHHHH and something else I tackled .....IT HAS HOLES...
so it needed some x stitches..

see the impression ....? They are the ones who make those IRONS I love so much...

Welllll I decided to stitch some wee flowers, called
FORGET ME NOT on them...
I have an extra shoe, so I am going to do some DAISIES on that one...

Stay tuned for MOTHERS day...They will be donating their NEWEST DESIGN..
( more later)  for some lucky LADY...

And speaking of Ladies....here is what I have done so far on my PAPER LADIES
for APRIL....I actually got more done on her since yesterday afternoon..

MORE pics later.. on her...

  24. Watch out, if you develop holes, Madame Samm will decorate you, lol! Lady April is stunning.

  25. Oh my goodness.... anything with holes had better watch out!! What a great idea though :o)
    I love your kitty! Our boys like the Lindt bells too... but they don't get to play with them very often as a certain puppy dog steals them and I am terrified she will choke on it!
    Can't wait to see more of your pretty April lady :o)
    Happy Easter
    Hugs xx

  26. Love all your plants, good idea about the baggie! We have cats so no plants inside for me- boohoo! Can't plant them outside because hubby says if we can't EAT it, we're not wasting water on it! Oh well, my thumbs are brown anyway. Beautiful CAT!

  27. you have a very cozy and nice blog! And the cat is a real looker !!! Thank you for your visit and comment on my blog. Tatiana.

  28. You will have a wonderful garden this summer when all these seedlings will have become flowers.
    So great, your iron show, I have never heard of such a thing. And wonderful progress on the April lady.

  29. Amo las flores y las plantas ya tenemos algo en común..Tus trabajos divinos cada uno de ellos en sus diversas técnicas

    Con cariño

  30. Your window area is looking like my house every spring. lol I'll be getting started with my seeds in the next few days. Trying hard to fit it in. Love what your doing with the paper ladies. I think I'm going to give floss coloring a try. I'm not sure mine will look as great as yours. Your definitely creative! ;-)


You think they are just words...they are sew much more than that...your wee messages tell me, you are kind, smart and important...
