All Work and No Play....

...brings flowers from DH's job....for me?? Well, I realize DH has been moving heaven and earth working, but what a nice gesture! And tulips are just so beautiful to me - I think I love this thoughtfulness - much thanks.

OK, where did the time go? The good news is my mom is moving in with us this weekend. The bad news is...none. Well, other than preparing, packing, and moving....LOL. But with a beautiful end result, so I'm not complaining! I just want her to be happy here, you know?


Mail was surely my friend in March. For my BD, Nancy sent this beautiful scissor keep and scissors (note the personalization - :). I was just thrilled with it - thanks so much, Nancy!


The mail also brought one of Karen's monthly Ornament Gifts. Turns out my name was drawn in March - how cool. This is just adorable! It will look lovely on my tree this Christmas and is much appreciated.

Stitching has been hit and miss, but I'm almost finished with my part on Karen's RR and will be sending it back home. Will post pics next time.
The sun is shining and it's truly spring, finally. Hope you all have a blessed day!

Hi Carolyn, it's been a while since I've visited your blog, and I see you've been incredibly busy!! What a thoughtful gesture for hubby to bring spring inside for you to enjoy!! Love your stitching (from the previous post too!) You'll soon be done with the alphabet! It's wonderful news to hear you'll be having your Mom move in. I'll be praying for an easy transition for all of you! Happy Belated Birthday! *Hugs*

You must be busy to go an entire month without blogging! My hubby brought home hyacinths not long ago, and I need to plant the bulbs soon. Good luck with the move of your Mom, it will make her live and your's much easier! When things have calmed down, we can finally get our birthday gifts exchanged!

Lovely tulips to light up your home with "springtime"! Your two needlework gifts are very special. What a unique Quaker scissor's keep. Did your friend design it? The lovely Christmas ornament will definitely be a very special addition to your Christmas tree!
