Mother Nature is confused...

or having a massive bipolar moment.  We've been having weather in the 70's all week.  It's been just gorgeous.  I was able to completely clean up the yard and flowerbeds. I walked my daughter to school and walked the dog a couple of times.  He was loving soaking up the rays under my forsythia bush.  
 Now here is today...(the same forsythia bush)
We're expecting up to 5 inches of snow.  This really stinks!
Here's what I've been up too lately...
I've made 3 new cards using some new paper that I just love called Echo Park Paper Springtime Kit.  LOVE IT!!!!

 Then here's my new stitching progress.  This is PS Winter.  I've down almost the whole bottom.  I think all I had done prior to stitching was the branches and red birds.
 The I started LK Peep.   This is adorable!!!  (Sorry for the sideways photos).
 This is my next start.  I'm waiting to finish the PS piece first, then I'll start this one.  I'm still trying to determine the fabric on it though.  I'm not using the Valdani thread on it though.  I got some great thread from www.hand-dyedfibers.com.  It's a great conversion.
 Sorry for the picture intensive post.  I have to go get ready for work.  Have a great weekend!

We had a freakin' blizzard yesterday! I am SICK of it.

Great projects you have going - the cards are darling and your stitching is very sweet. Love the PS piece and that new one, wow!

Hi I am here from the Link up Love party. It sure is fun meeting so many new crafters. I live in Wisconsin. We had 80 yesterday and snow last week. There still is snow in the woods. But the robins are back and my tulips are coming up so winter is almost over. Yea!
