Not Getting Very Far

I haven't had the time nor the energy to make a dent into this one. Ah, 'Tis Spring is coming along slowly and I don't have a lot to show you. Here is where I'm up to...

Ah, 'Tis Spring - 26 March 2010

I decided to do the carrot tops in WDW Guacamole which is the same colour as the top section of the grass. The actual grass in my pictures is some cat grass I'm growing for my girls (cats not humans). Being indoor cats, they don't normally have access to grass. Sometimes I let them outside while I'm there and they like to potter around and will eat some grass then. It's good for their digestive system.


I've been given another award recently from Theresa and Marylin. Thank you ladies for thinking of me when passing on this award.


I am supposed to now pass it on to 12 others. Please forgive me, but I have recently been given an award and am finding it hard to come up with 12 more people to pass this one onto. I do get a bit overwhelmed by these awards and sometimes I try to pass them on but other times I find it difficult. I do appreciate the time and thought to give it to me in the first place though.

After a busy weekend I've had, I'm looking forward to working a four day week next week instead of five. Over the Easter break I plan to put some plants in the garden that I've bought recently. It will be nice to get that extra time to enjoy a bit of gardening.

Its still looking lovely sometimes designs come along slowly, but it will be pretty when you finish, don't pressure yourself to get it done I always find that fatal!!

I sometimes have to remind myself why I love stitching (it's relaxing) and that the speed of my progress is not on deadline. Relax and enjoy whatever you feel like doing, even if it isn't stitching.

BTW, I also have two Birmans, Zissou and Zoe. They're 3 1/2 year old twins, the only two in the litter. Have you noticed the tendency that when people have Birmans they usually have two?

Love your photography/photo shop skills! Your pictures are all so beautifully displayed!

Melissa said...

Oh, that'll be me next week - no stitching time! You have made progress, just not as much as you'd like, right?

I was going to tease you about the grass, whether you went and brought in the lawn for the photo shoot! ;-)

Congrats on the award. Isn't it pretty, with your favourite flower too?

This little bunny is looking very cute. I'll have to write down your color changes. I have not started this yet, but I'll let you know in an e-mail what I've been up to.
Many Hugs. Have a wonderful week!

Love your blog and your stitching! I live in Victoria Australia too so it's nice to see someone else on here from the same place.
