Hello blog friends! Happy Easter!  
It's been over two months since my last post. I hope you all had a very meaningful Lenten season. Abstaining from the internet/computer wasn't actually planned. The laptop was acting up again (either slow or made a sound then shuts down) and there's been a period that I couldn't handle organizing or taking any more pictures (yes, the trip photos still stored in SD cards and my phone). So what was I busy with for the last two months? Let's see, the Big niece was here last month for an early college break. At work, it was evaluation and license renewal time. Tax season (measly refund already gone). Oh, and the credit card had unauthorized purchases, fourth time since last year. Good thing the company replaced my card immediately and cancelled those "online gaming" charges. Idle hands I'm not guilty of though... I have been stitching! First, I have finished two pieces:)
Last time you saw this was here. Isn't that cute for Easter!
 Boreal Chickadee
fr. Crossed Wing Collection
16ct. French Lace Aida
Next we have something chubby from a used chart I just bought from Amazon (I'll do the chart and fabric haul in another post):
Old Virginia Ham
fr. Crates & Sacks 3 by Country Cross Stitch
16ct. French Lace Aida
I also have starts, but managed a photograph on just one for this post:
Welcome to Our Hive
fr. Good in Everything 
by Rosewood Manor
14ct. Lite Oatmeal Aida
Of the existing WIPs , I worked on two:
Spells' Store by Primitive Hare, you can compare my progress from here. 
 And Houses of Peace from Cross Country Stitching, last seen here
I have started two sampler charts and so enjoying those too. Hint: they're huge (for me).
Well, that's it for now. Just wanted to say hello. I'll be visiting blogs as soon as I get the laptop in shape. I hope this thing does the trick:
Take care everyone. Thanks for visiting and
Happy Stitching!
