A quick Hello

A little update on my stitching.

Wednesday I went to Toronto to the convention center to see " Canada Blooms".
It is a lovely bit of spring as you can see the Tulips [my favorite].

The whole building is planted with flowers and garden displays. It has a huge market as well. We went by bus so it was a lovely day.

This girl was doing a sand sculpture it was amazing!

I have to work on the weekend so I thought I would try and catch up with you tonight.
Have a nice weekend and stitch with happy fingers.

Thanks for sharing the photos of the convention! I love tulips and orchids... and any other kind of flower you want to show us.

Your reindeer is looking great.

Your stitching is going great guns. My gosh, those tulips are beautiful. You have such neat bus trips.

Man Beatrice it was nice to see the picture of those tulips. Alas mine (and yours too I assume) are still hibernating under a couple of feet of snow!

You are making great progress on both of these WIPs. I loved seeing your photos of the convention. The tulips are gorgeous and the sand carving is amazing.

Your wips are looking great Beatrice, thanks for sharing the flower photos. The snow looks amazing, can you tell I live somewhere where it doesn't snow.

Hi Beatrice,

What a nice break from this never ending winter you had at Canada Blooms last week. My SIL was working there during part of the show at the Lee Valley Tools booth.

It's a very popular show in Toronto, probably because everyone is so desperate to have a taste of Spring/Summer. Best to go during the week, which you did, and not take the car if you can help it.

Your stitching projects are both so lovely, and progressing nicely.

So, do you think we've seen the last major snow storm of this year???

Seeing those beautiful flowers...what a nice change from all that snow! Tulips are my favourite. Can't wait for the tulip festival in Ottawa.
Both WIP look great. I love the Nordic Angel!
