A Bird and Bloom

It is feeling like spring here today!  
I think March's lion has already come and gone.

This week I got started on Rachel Hyde with the center flower.  I am working on 32 ct LL vintage maple sugar with dmc threads.....

I am loving all the rice stitches in this design, it gives such amazing texture!

and I haven't forgotten about Mary Wigham, here is a new bird  :D

I hope you are all having a GREAT week.  
Today is my TGIF, well TGIW really, because I am off of work tomorrow and headed to the Philadelphia Flower show for the day :D  
So, I hope to have some pretty flowers to share with you by the weekend!

Thanks so much for all of your wonderful comments!!
Enjoy the rest of your week and Happy Stitching!!! xxxxxx

Krista, I just love how those rice stitches make the blossom jump off the linen surface. It'll be fun to see what is added next. Your Mary Wigham is making me want to start another Quaker!!
