Tree

Tree

Honestly I should have more to show for my weekend. I did have a few hours working on the sampler and am happy with this little tree in one of the grids. I outlined it in running stitch and then threaded another color through the first. If you haven't tried that stitch, it's a quick way to fill a space. Pretty too.

The weather has been feisty- teasing sun and then damp, overcast cold. I go from wanting to build a fire to thinking we should open all the windows and back again. We've been working on our basement re-do. If there's anything colder than painting an empty basement on a chilly spring day, it could only be a garage. 

The nicest part of the weekend was Friday evening when the day gave the best of itself to the five o'clock hour. It was beautiful at the river.
